Mitt Romney is running for the U.S. Senate in Utah.

He announced his campaign in a video posted online Friday.

"I have decided to run for United States Senate because I believe I can help bring Utah's values and Utah's lessons to Washington," Romney said.

Romney's announcement isn't exactly a surprise. Earlier this month, he tweeted that he'd be making an announcement Feb. 15 about the Senate race in Utah.

As we previously reported, Romney is pretty popular in the deep-red state. And he's not expected to face stiff competition.

Romney is looking to replace Sen. Orrin Hatch, who announced earlier this year he's not running for re-election.
