GOPe Senator Hatch looking for the door?

Postby bignflnut » Fri Oct 27, 2017 1:20 pm

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah—Senator Orrin Hatch has privately told allies in Utah that he is planning to retire at the end of his term next year, and if he does, Mitt Romney intends to run for his seat, according to five sources familiar with the situation.


Oh, how Bannon and his candidate would spank Romney!
Make it so!

Romney would be hoping for strong Mormon support to win.

Former Massachusetts governor and twice failed GOP candidate for president Mitt Romney is reportedly quite seriously contemplating a Senate run in Utah. While the senior senator from Utah Orrin Hatch (R) has not announced any plans to retire, it appears that the Utah GOP is ready for Romney.

Romney is no stranger to Senate campaigns; he ran against Ted Kennedy (D-MA) in 1994 and lost. Utah, however, may be just the ticket for Romney who has high approval numbers there and is a favorite among the Utah GOP.

The Salt Lake Tribune’s editorial board penned a plea to Romney last weekend in which they noted that Romney “could be a savior for Republicans exhausted by President Trump.” Among the traits they laud is Romney’s consistent anti-Trumpism, Romneycare, and his mild temperament and statesmanship.


Please x 3!
Put Romney in the ring with Bannon!

NO! Gonna screw around and end up with a Democrat in that seat.

I agree there has to be a better candidate than Romney but there's got to be a better way to get there than to antagonize a large block of voters.
