    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who voted twice to convict former President Trump on impeachment charges, is ruling out voting for Trump in 2024, citing a court’s finding that the former president sexually abused E. Jean Carroll in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the 1990s. Romney’s announcement that he won’t vote for Trump isn’t surprising. But it does show him sharpening his rhetoric against the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination by saying the reason for his opposition is a Manhattan jury’s finding last year that Trump sexually abused and defamed Carroll, awarding her $5 million in damages. A New...

    RINO Senator Mitt Romney (UT) trashed ‘out of touch’ voters who still support Trump even though ‘a jury found Trump raped a woman.’CNN’s Manu Raju on Wednesday said he asked Mitt Romney about the Iowa caucus entrance polls showing that a “majority of GOP caucusgoers didn’t believe that Joe Biden was elected legitimately.” (snip)“I think a lot of people in this country are out of touch with reality and will accept anything Donald Trump tells them.

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, on Sunday said he won’t be supporting former President Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election, and he wouldn’t rule out voting for President Joe Biden. Romney, a frequent critic of Trump, heavily rebuked the former president in an exclusive interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.” He said Trump is “dangerous for the country” because he carries “authoritarian rulings and interests,” and called him “a human gumball machine” that spouts out unfiltered thoughts to the public. Asked by host Kristen Welker if he’d vote for Biden, given what he said about Trump, Romney said: “I’m...
  • Sen. Mitt Romney says he wants Democrat Joe Manchin to run for president but claims him endorsing any 2024 candidate is a 'kiss of death'

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romeny doesn't want to endorse anyone for president because he thinks putting his name behind any candidate will be a 'kiss of death' as he prepares to leave Congress at the end of his term in 2025. The Utah senator wishes his colleague Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) would be on the Democratic ticket rather than President Joe Biden. While Romeny wouldn't reveal on Sunday who he plans to vote for, he said he will absolutely not cast his ballot for former President Donald Trump.

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that former President Donald Trump had a dangerous “authoritarian approach.” Romney said, “I do think you can look at his record as president and particularly in the last months of his presidency and say, ‘This is a dangerous approach. It’s an authoritarian approach.’ That gives me far more concern than him playing to the crowd as he did.” He continued, “I think if you can look at the last few months of his presidency, you’d suggest that that’s the kind of thing you might see. That he would not...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) signaled that nearly any candidate in the 2024 field, of either party, would be an “upgrade” over another term for former President Trump. “I’d be happy to support virtually any one of the Republicans — maybe not Vivek [Ramaswamy] — but the others that are running would be acceptable to me, and I’d be happy to vote for them,” the retiring senator said Friday in an interview with CBS’s Norah O’Donnell. “I’d be happy to vote for a number of the Democrats too,” he continued. “It would be an upgrade, in my opinion, from Donald Trump...

    Romney not knowing what Burisma was in the middle of the impeachment about Burisma is not terribly surprising. But proud ignorance is not a virtue, and it’s certainly not principled.Mitt Romney’s longtime stenographer McKay Coppins has a new book out called Romney: A Reckoning. The book is an airing of silly and surprisingly petty grievances from Utah’s unpopular junior senator, who lost a winnable presidential campaign against Barack Obama in 2012 and is now being driven out of the Senate by his inability to win reelection.Much of the book details Romney’s growing appreciation of his Democrat colleagues and their policies...

    I knew there was something wrong with Mitt Romney, really wrong, when my mom – a daughter of Pennsylvania’s steel mill country, but a dedicated Republican, told me back in 2012, “I just don’t like him.” Of course, those steel mills are all gone now, moved to China by guys who either were, or looked exactly like, Mitt Romney. Now he’s finally calling it quits as a senator, apparently by popular demand. His departure is cause for celebration. Mitt Romney is a bad person who pretends to be a good person. He is the blow-dried embodiment of everything awful about...

    …many private-equity experts have long explained that the goal of Bain and similar companies was never to create jobs per se — but to generate profit for itself and its investors. If this … tape again causes Romney problems, though, it is likely to be because of its tone. His 47 percent language was seen as labeling nearly half the country as moochers who would never take responsibility for their own lives. This time, it's that word "harvesting," which brings to mind, for instance, organ harvesting from the recently deceased.

    Utah Sen. Mitt Romney has some work to do if he plans on running for another term next year, but he has a big head start on any potential challengers, according to a new poll. In a hypothetical 2024 Republican Senate primary match-up, 30% of Utah Republicans would vote for Romney. Attorney General Sean Reyes, who is reportedly eyeing a U.S. Senate bid, is the only other potential candidate with double-digit support at 13%. So far, two other candidates are in the race for Romney’s seat, but they only managed marginal support in the poll from Noble Predictive Insights. House...

    Dozens of Republican lawmakers in Utah have thrown their support behind a likely challenger to Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney. The Republican senator has faced declining poll numbers in the state and already has a primary challenger in the form of Riverton Mayor Trent Staggs. Romney has not announced his intent to seek reelection. Should he do so, he may face a formidable opponent in Speaker of the House Brad Wilson, who has formed a committee to explore a Senate bid against him, Fox News reported. That prospective bid, per the committee, has already earned the support of three-quarters of...

Mitt Romney is a “loser.”Trump made the comments about Romney, who carpet-bagged his way into a U.S. Senate seat from Utah after he lost the 2012 presidential election after his governorship in the northeastern Bay State, Massachusetts, during a nearly hour-long exclusive on-camera interview last week at his golf club here.“Mitt’s a loser. He’s been a loser for a long time,” Trump said when asked to respond to Romney’s recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal in which the...

Romney said, “I’m angry. The country is going to go through tumult as a result of one thing, President Trump didn’t turn over military documents when he was asked to do so. All he had to do was hand them in. I’m sure his counsel told him, hand the documents in, particularly when the subpoena came. But for some reason, he decided not to. He held onto them. Why?...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said on Friday that Donald Trump had “brought these charges upon himself” after the former president was notified of his indictment in an investigation into his handling of classified materials. “Mr. Trump brought these charges upon himself by not only taking classified documents, but by refusing to simply return them when given numerous opportunities to do so,” Romney said in a statement. The former Republican presidential candidate acknowledged that Trump is “entitled to the presumption of innocence” and that the government is faced with “the burden of proving its charges beyond a reasonable doubt.” However, he...

    SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (TND) — Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, is convinced he would win a second term in the U.S. Senate if he runs again, despite failing twice at becoming the Republican nominee for president and being known for breaking from his GOP colleagues during certain standoffs with Democrats. "I’m convinced that if I run, I win," Romney told Politico while discussing his potential bid for reelection that would come up in 2024. Probably the most noteworthy divergence Romney has taken from his own party was when he voted in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump, becoming the...
