If you're fed up with Congress - and let's face it, most Americans are - perhaps you're planning to finally do something about it. To place your money where you mouth is. Stop talking and start doing. Put up or shut up, as they say.
Yes, you're about to run for a seat in the House of Representatives. Or you're at least thinking about it.
So what should you know?
Republican Mitt Romney, who disappeared from politics for a period following his failed bid for the White House in 2012, is being encouraged by some supporters to run for president in the 2016 election, according to a new report in The Boston Globe.
