JEFFERSON CITY — Matt Blunt has been hired by an equity firm led by a son of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
Solamere Capital said Tuesday that the outgoing governor will be a senior adviser at the Massachusetts firm, led by Tagg Romney. It cited his experience with Missouri’s budget.
Blunt was an early supporter of Mitt Romney’s failed Republican presidential bid. He announced in January that he would not seek a second term as governor. He leaves office Jan. 12.
His administration gained attention over accusations of violating an open records law. His office recently released e-mails to settle a lawsuit brought by media organizations.
A spokesman says Blunt will continue to live with his family in Springfield.
