  • Mitt Romney: I never led the Never Trump movement

    He’s asked in the clip below about having led the Never Trump movement, which he denies. And I suppose that’s fair enough: There was no formal Never Trump “leader.” But Romney, as the reigning GOP nominee and the person who delivered the most scathing anti-Trump speech by a Republican during the 2016 cycle, was the closest thing to one. In fact, I take his denial to be aimed not so much at the claim that he led Never Trumpers as at the idea that he even was a Never Trumper.

    Mitt Romney (R) said the "last 24 hours" have confirmed his "faith" in the U.S. justice system after President Trump's former campaign chairman was convicted on eight felony counts while his former personal lawyer pleaded guilty to various counts including campaign finance law violations. "The events of the last 24 hours confirm that conduct by highly-placed individuals was both dishonorable and illegal," Romney, who is running for the Senate in Utah, wrote in a tweet on Wednesday. "Also confirmed is my faith in our justice system and my conviction that we are a nation committed to the rule of law."...

    Bill Maher has offered Mitt Romney $1M to take over the United States. The HBO late night star reminded viewers that, when the former Massachusetts governor ran for POTUS in 2012, “I was so scared Romney was going to be president I gave Obama a million bucks.” Explaining what a difference a few years, and one Donald Trump presidency, can make, Maher announced, “I would gladly give Romney $1M tomorrow if he would take over America. Swear to god!” “I will become a Mormon, how about that?” the well-known atheist said, upping the offer on Bill Maher: Live From Oklahoma,...

    I’m not surprised he’d be more pro-Mueller and anti-Trump than the average Republican would-be senator. I *am* a bit surprised that he didn’t hedge more in his answers here. Watch the Russiagate one first: .@kasie: "Do you think the Russia investigation is a hoax?"@MittRomney: "No, I think it's a totally appropriate evaluation by our government." pic.twitter.com/3kSCFkzbIQ— Kasie DC (@KasieDC) July 2, 2018 He does say that he doubts Mueller will find any evidence of collusion by Trump but the typical answer to this question lately by GOPers is finish it the hell up.

    Mitt Romney said it is "too early" to say he will support President Trump in 2020. The Utah candidate for U.S. senator further explained to MSNBC's Kasie Hunt, in an interview that aired Sunday evening, that his prior prediction that Trump will get re-elected was not an endorsement. "I also think Gavin Newsom will get elected [as governor] in California. That's not something I want to see, it's just something that's probably going to happen," Romney added. Romney was also prompted to speak about whether he wants a Republican to challenge Trump in a 2020 primary. "There will be people...

    One of the questions I am asked frequently on the campaign trail is whether as Senator I will support the Trump agenda. I’ve learned this means different things to different people. That difference, I believe, is a defining choice for Republicans.

    Mitt Romney said Sunday he will continue to speak out against President Trump when he sees fit, but acknowledged that he agrees with a number of the president's policies. Romney, who is campaigning for U.S. Senate in Utah, penned an op-ed for The Salt Lake Tribune. He sought to clarify his stance on Trump, whom Romney has alternately criticized and praised dating back to his own 2012 presidential campaign. "If you elect me your senator, I will fight with vigor for the interests of our state and nation. I will endorse the president’s policies that support those interests. Hopefully, there...

    Mitt Romney made no secret of his criticism of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, but until now, he had not publicly revealed who he voted for: his wife, Ann. "I wrote in the name of a person who I admire deeply, who I think would be an excellent president," the Utah US Senate candidate told the Deseret News and KSL editorial boards Wednesday. Romney said he realized his vote "wasn't going to go anywhere, but nonetheless felt that I was putting in a very solid name."

    The Brookings Institution ^ | 04-26-2018 | Elaine Kamarck
    If, as expected, Mitt Romney wins his race for a Senate seat from Utah he may become the most powerful man in the United States Senate. As many of us remember, Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts, ran for president in 2012 and lost to Barack Obama. It wasn’t one of those totally humiliating losses—the map did not turn blue—but we assumed Mitt Romney would fade into history. Well, maybe not. The seat will remain Republican-held for President Trump come January of 2019, but this one could very well turn out to be the swing vote in the Senate. If Democrats...

    Mitt Romney did not win the Utah Republican Party's nomination on Saturday, meaning he must compete in a June primary election as he seeks to replace retiring US Sen. Orrin Hatch. After a wild and raucous day of voting at the Utah GOP convention, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee was unable to win the 60% that he needed to head to the November ballot unopposed. When none of the 12 candidates were able to cross that threshold, the party continued with successive rounds of caucus voting until one candidate reached 40%. On the second round of...

    At a Q&A session Monday night, Senate candidate Mitt Romney defended his conservatism saying he's tougher on some issues — like immigration — than the president, reports the Utah Daily Herald: "I’m a deficit hawk. That makes me more conservative than a lot of Republicans and a lot of Democrats. I’m also more of a hawk on immigration than even the president. My view was these DACA kids shouldn’t all be allowed to stay in the country legally." — Mitt Romney Background: Romney was pointing directly to President Trump's proposed plan that would have created a path to citizenship for...

    Mitt Romney is being hit with the first attack ad of the Utah Senate race Thursday, a slickly produced video that portrays him as a darling of the D.C. establishment and gives him the nickname “flip-flopper Mitt.” The ad from Republican candidate Larry Meyers slams Mr. Romney, the presumptive front-runner in the GOP race, with accusations of not being conservative enough for Utah voters. “The D.C. establishment loves Mitt Romney. But Utah voters have a better choice. Larry Meyers,” says the announcer. It then rips open an old wound for Mr. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and a former...

    Republicans in Utah are on edge as they await a decision from Sen. Orrin Hatch on 2018 that could determine whether Mitt Romney’s political career has one more act. Hatch is reconsidering retirement after receiving encouragement from President Trump and his allies, and soaking up praise for shepherding a historic tax overhaul in his role as Senate Finance Committee chairman. The 83-year-old previously signaled plans to step aside after seven terms and clear a path for Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and a prominent Trump critic, to succeed him. Hatch is something of an icon in Utah, but his...

    After 42 years, it is time Utah changes up senators. When incumbent Sen. Orrin Hatch was elected to his seventh term in 2012, he vowed it would be his last. Recently, however, the 83-year-old told KUTV he will run again—unless his friend Mitt Romney calls him and says he would like to run. Then Hatch would step aside. Here are seven reasons Romney should take Hatch up on that offer. 1. Gives Utah Time to Find a Long-term Solution According to The Salt Lake Tribune, 75 percent of voters said Hatch should not run again. By 2024, he would be...

    Mitt Romney called on President Donald Trump Friday to apologize for his comments about Charlottesville, Virginia, saying the President’s remarks this week “caused racists to rejoice.” “The potential consequences are severe in the extreme,” Romney wrote in a Facebook post. “Accordingly, the president must take remedial action in the extreme. He should address the American people, acknowledge that he was wrong, apologize.” He said that Trump’s remarks — in which he blamed “both sides” for inciting violence, an equivocation between neo-Nazis and those protesting them — had a hurtful impact on the nation. “Whether he intended to or not, what...

    On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” TheRoot.com Politics Editor Dr. Jason Johnson argued that President-Elect Donald Trump might pick former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney as Secretary of State to get him out of Washington in the same way President Obama “took Hillary Clinton, who has been one of his biggest critics, made her Secretary of State and told her to get out of the country.” Johnson said, “There’s an element to this that you sometimes see when someone is like the President of the United States. They may choose some of their most vocal critics, who are still within...
