    Mitt Romney, the junior senator from Utah, was the only Republican senator who refused to endorse Mike Lee. Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee captured a third term Tuesday night after his same-state GOP colleague in the upper chamber de facto backed Lee’s challenger, a Democrat masquerading as an independent. Mitt Romney, the junior senator from Utah, was the only Republican senator who refused Lee an endorsement against failed 2016 third-party presidential candidate Evan McMullin. In April, Romney told Politico his refusal to endorse in the contest was due to having “two friends” in the race. “I don’t get involved in...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) offered only a brief and generic congratulatory text to Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) after Romney refused to endorse Lee. Lee defeated Never Trumper and Utah independent Senate candidate Evan McMullin; now, Lee will be entering his third term in Congress’s upper chamber. The Utah Senate election was fraught with controversy as Romney, Utah’s junior senator, refused to endorse Lee’s reelection bid. Romney claimed that he could not pick a side between his two friends, Lee and McMullin; however, it is customary to endorse members of the same party, especially when they came from the same congressional...

    Former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii implored Utah voters to reelect Republican Sen. Mike Lee to prevent "warmonger" Democrats' escalations towards nuclear war. Speaking at a packed gymnasium in Draper, Utah, Thursday, Gabbard, according to Deseret News, called Democrats "warmongers" who are "subservient to the military industrial complex" and are escalating the United States closer to nuclear war with Russia.Gabbard encouraged voters to send politicians like Lee to the Senate to "push the brakes on this and stop them [Democrats] from destroying life as we know it." But Lee's opponent, former CIA agent and independent Utah Senate candidate Evan...

    Salt Lake City, UT – Independent Senate candidate Evan McMullin called his liberal counterpart in Texas, Beto O’Rourke, to brag that he just finished his concession speech and now has his entire Saturday free. McMullin informed O’Rourke that he might even take his sweet drone out and “just check out the neighborhood” this afternoon, now that he’s put the finishing touches on his “it was a moral victory” comments he plans to give after being thoroughly beaten by opponent Mike Lee in the upcoming Utah Senate election.

    Never Trumper and Utah independent Senate candidate Evan McMullin in 2021 called for Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue’s (R-GA) ouster during the 2021 Georgia special election, which gave Democrats the Senate majority. “On Tuesday, principled conservatives in Georgia should vote Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue out of office. With few exceptions, the GOP has become a ruinous, unpatriotic blight and both senators are as corrupt as they come. The republic cannot sustain such depravity indefinitely,” McMullin wrote ahead of the Georgia special election.

    Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) leads Utah independent Senate candidate Evan McMullin by 15 points, according to a poll released Monday. Lee leads McMullin 47 to 32 percent — 15 points — in an OH Predictive Insights poll. Five percent of likely voters would vote for someone other than Lee or McMullin, and 16 percent remain undecided. The poll was conducted after the Club for Growth Action ran ads that highlighted McMullin’s history of disparaging Republicans as racist and bigots. In reaction to these ads, McMullin decided to file a lawsuit against the conservative action group. Watch clips: “Evan McMullin, Running...

    Independent Utah Senate candidate Evan McMullin said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he will not caucus with either party if he beats incumbent Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) on November 8. McMullin said, “I am running as an independent. I’m building a coalition of Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and members of third parties to better represent Utah and to help lead our country forward. And I’m not going to Washington to join a party or to caucus or to play the party power game. I’m going to represent our coalition, and that’s a commitment that I’ve made to our coalition...

    Republican senators are growing concerned by colleague Mitt Romney’s refusal to help fellow Utah Republican Mike Lee decisively win his re-election campaign — a posture that could potentially keep their party from gaining a majority in the November elections. Unlike every other Republican senator, the 2012 failed Republican presidential candidate is declining to express a preference in Republican Lee’s re-election effort against Democrat-endorsed Evan McMullin. “I respect [Romney], and I understand that each state has its own dynamics, but I do not understand why he is remaining neutral,” said one Republican senator who asked not to be identified. “Whatever our...

Mike Lee (R-UT) leads Never Trumper and Utah independent Senate candidate Evan McMullin by double digits, smashing establishment media narratives that this Senate race is closer than it appears, according to an internal Lee campaign poll. Breitbart News obtained an internal Lee campaign poll that found that Lee leads by 19 points over McMullin, or 52 to 33 percent, with 10 percent of voters remaining undecided. The survey also found that Lee also leads amongst Republicans with 70 percent and is tied with McMullin on independent-leaning voters with 44 percent. McMullin only leads with Democrat voters with 60 percent,...

    Two GOP officials urged voters to make sure "rational Republicans" don't lose the "GOP civil war." The op-ed was written by Miles Taylor, a Trump-era Department of Homeland Security chief of staff, and Christine Todd Whitman, a former Republican Gov. of New Jersey. They highlighted the need to elect a "strong contingent of moderate Democrats" in 2022. Two GOP officials have urged Republican voters to vote Democrat in the 2022 midterm elections, suggesting that this might be a way for the GOP to "battle pro-Trump extremists."

    Evan McMullin, who launched an ill-fated third-party bid for president in 2016, announced Tuesday he will wage an independent challenge to Sen. Mike Lee (R) in Utah’s Senate race next year. McMullin, a CIA veteran and self-proclaimed government reform advocate, is centering his campaign around ending the rife partisanship in Washington after spending years criticizing both Democrats and Republicans for a lack of compromise and cooperation. "Our politics are broken," McMullin said in a statement announcing his campaign. "And it's putting our country in danger. We need leaders who will unite rather than divide. Washington has left us so polarized...

    (Reuters) - Dozens of former Republican officials, who view the party as unwilling to stand up to former President Donald Trump and his attempts to undermine U.S. democracy, are in talks to form a center-right breakaway party, four people involved in the discussions told Reuters. The early stage discussions include former elected Republicans, former officials in the Republican administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and Trump, ex-Republican ambassadors and Republican strategists, the people involved say. More than 120 of them held a Zoom call last Friday to discuss the breakaway group, which would run on a...

    Donald Trump’s refusal to accept his electoral defeat is alarming, but unsurprising. It is Mr. Trump’s character to reject even reality itself when it conflicts with his ego. More alarming is the long list of state and national Republican leaders cravenly falling in line behind his desperate efforts to topple American democracy. On Friday, the Supreme Court rejected a Texas lawsuit to overturn the election, a legal challenge that was as frivolous as it was anti-constitutional. Yet more than 60 percent of House Republicans signed a supporting brief, joining 18 Republican attorneys general who filed their own and embraced entirely...

    Never Trump Republicans planning to gather in Charlotte, North Carolina, in August, at the same moment as President Trump’s renomination celebration there are taking aim at congressional Republicans. The “Convention on Founding Principles” is scheduled to coincide with the Republican presidential nominating convention, which is set for Aug. 24–27 at the Spectrum Center arena. . . . “Even if Trump weren’t in the picture, the party would still need some reforming,” said Evan McMullin, a Never Trump Republican and one of the organizers of the event. McMullin mounted a failed, eleventh-hour third-party bid against Trump in 2016 and later co-founded...

    This was sick. Like Shakespeare's three witches cackling over Macbeth's impending doom, Nicolle Wallace and two of her guests today threw poisoned entrails in their cauldron as they fantasized ill for President Trump. Two of the reveries were outright violent. First up was "GOP strategist" Rick Wilson, who declared "Trump isn't magic, he isn't invulnerable. If you cut him, he'll still bleed." Wilson has a history of bloody fantasies about President Trump. Back in May, we caught him advising Democrats to up the Trump admin "body count," while encouraging them to inflict a "death of 1,000 cuts," and to "raise...
