A Romney Take Over in Utah?

In A Hilarious Twist Mitt Romney Wants To Run For Senate To Troll Donald Trump

In A Hilarious Twist Mitt Romney Wants To Run For Senate To Troll Donald Trump

Hatch floated Romney as a possible successor in an interview with National Journal last week, saying the former MA governor "would be flawless".

In addition to discussing it with Hatch and other party leaders in Utah, sources said Romney has spoken with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Romney served as the 70th governor of MA from 2003 to 2007 before running for president in both 2008 and 2012.

Romney was a harsh critic of President Trump during the 2016 election. Many of the Mormon Romney-backers I spoke to talked about his call to public service in spiritual terms-with some even making half-joking references to "White Horse Prophecy", a bit of apocryphal LDS folk doctrine that predicts the U.S. Constitution will one day "hang by a thread" and Mormons will have to save it.

Experts say there is no way Romney will run for the seat without Hatch's blessing. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, has told the National Journal he might be step aside if Mitt Romney made a decision to run for his seat in the U.S. Senate.

O'Reilly book offers tips on how to treat women
Refusing to play the victim role after Bill O'Reilly literally came for her head and said something about her hairstyle, Rep. Ending O'Reilly's show without evidence his appeal is dwindling carries a risk: It could ignite a backlash among fans.

Currently, though, Romney is on a charity trip in Indonesia.

But he's been a folk hero in Utah ever since he took over and successfully ran the initially troubled 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

His son Josh Romney is also seen as a potential candidate for office in Utah.

He said that after Hatch's comments to the National Journal, "people started talking". Hatch is going to run again or not.

'While it's no secret that I hold Mitt Romney in extraordinarily high esteem, my musing aloud on the subject has apparently snowballed into a frenzy of premature speculation, ' Hatch said. "I just think he hasn't, in his mind, gotten to that place yet".
