MITT’S ALL-IN: Romney RETURNS in RUN for US SENATE

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.16.18

Former presidential hopeful and Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney announced his return to the political arena Friday morning, officially kicking off his bid to replace outgoing Orrin Hatch as Utah’s next Senator.

Romney unveiled his Senate bid on social media with a two-minute long campaign video, claiming he was running to bring “Utah’s values to Washington.”

“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,” he said. “Utah is a better model for Washington than Washington is for Utah.”

If elected, he would replace 83-year old Sen. Hatch; setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown between the former GOP presidential candidate and the Commander-in-Chief -whom Romney has repeatedly criticized as a “phony” and a “fraud.”
