    Despite the many failures of the GOP as a national party under her watch, particularly in 2022 when bad candidates, bad spending plans, and particularly poor messaging turned what should have been a red wave into a pink puddle, RNC chair Ronna McDaniel is attempting to run again and hold onto her leadership position.Her decision to do so came back in November of 2022, shortly after the midterms disaster, with Politico reporting at the time that:Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel signaled on Monday that she plans to run for reelection as party chair, which would set her up to...

    It should come as no surprise to Utahns or anyone who identifies as conservative that Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) did not vote along party lines when it came to the $1.7 trillion spending bill/omnibus package. Well, he did vote along party lines, just not the party with which he is affiliated. Romney took to Twitter to explain his rationale...If you couldn’t stand a political version of a time-share pitch, let me summarize it for you:- It would cost less to pass it this year than next. - Republicans aren’t organized enough to get a speaker together, let alone budgets. -...

    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...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who’s up for reelection in 2024, said in an interview published on Wednesday that “I’m convinced that if I run, I win.” In the interview with Politico, Romney didn’t say whether he would seek a second term as senator but projected confidence that he would win if decided to do so. “I’ve faced long odds: Getting the nomination in 2012 was a long shot, becoming a Republican governor in one of the most liberal states in America, Massachusetts. … So I’m convinced that if I run, I win. But that’s a decision I’ll make,” the first-term...

    Afraid that the Republican House majority in the next session of Congress might do serious damage to the President, Democrats are weighing strategies to deter any investigation into the Bidens' alleged multi-million-dollar influence-peddling schemes. In hopes of negating prosecution of Hunter, his friend, agent and lawyer Kevin Morris, paid off $2.8 million of the back taxes he owed. Morris also called for a "more aggressive" response including hitting critics, such as Fox News, with possible defamation lawsuits and figuring out a way to destroy the credibility of potential witnesses--Hunter's former business partner Tony Bobulinski and John Paul Mac Isaac, the...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Thursday he would not support former President Donald Trump if he were to become the Republican nominee for president in 2024. “Absolutely not,” Romney told a reporter during an event on climate change in Washington, D.C. “Look, I voted to remove him from office twice.” “And it’s not just because he loses,” the senator said of his refusal to support Trump. “That’s my reason that I offer to other people who are big fans of his.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Mitt Romney reassured supporters today that he would be remaining a faithful member of the Democratic Party. "The Democratic Party can continue to count on me through thick and thin," said Mr. Romney in a statement. "While Senator Sinema and I have both occasionally voted with Congressional Republicans, I want voters to rest assured that I will never go turncoat like her. I'm staying put." After Sinema's exit left Senate control in the balance, Democrats rushed to reaffirm Mr. Romney's allegiance. "I knew he would stay true to his progressive roots," said Majority Leader Chuck Schumer....

    At a Washington Post webinar on Thursday, Romney spoke about the necessity of fighting climate change. In his view, the most useful tool would be a carbon tax, which would push the private sector to innovate towards clean energy. “The folks at MIT, as you probably know, built a model saying, 'Okay, what things that we do, will actually reduce emissions, reduce temperatures or hold temperatures from going up as fast as they have it. What can we do?' And the number one thing, and frankly, the only thing that had a major impact was having a price on carbon,...

    Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Tuesday urged members of her party to stop discouraging early voting and vote by mail. “Our voters need to vote early,” McDaniel told Fox News. “I have said this over and over again. There were many in 2020 saying, ‘Don’t vote by mail, don’t vote early.’ And we have to stop that and understand that if Democrats are getting ballots in for a month, we can’t expect to get it all done in one day.” Former President Trump was among the leading voices that questioned the security and validity of early and...

    Impeaching DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for failing to secure the southern border does not appear to have the support of the some Republican senators. As border patrol has encountered more than 2.3 million illegal aliens at the border, with over 230,000 migrant encounters in October, establishment Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Susan Collins (R-ME) appear averse to holding Mayorkas accountable for the southern border invasion. “Someone has to commit a high crime or misdemeanor for that to be a valid inquiry,” Romney told Politico about impeachment standards. “I haven’t seen any accusation of that nature whatsoever.”

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R.-Utah), who was the losing Republican presidential nominee in 2012, voted on Wednesday to move forward to a final vote in the Senate on the “Respect for Marriage Act,” which would recognize same-sex marriages in federal law. “While I believe in traditional marriage, Obergefell is and has been the law of the land upon which LGBTQ individuals have relied,” said Romney. “This legislation provides certainty to many LGBTQ Americans, and it signals that Congress—and I—esteem and love all of our fellow Americans equally.” “This legislation provides important protections for religious liberty—measures which are particularly important to protect...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — With the Respect for Marriage Bill to codify gay marriage nearing final passage, Representative Ilhan Omar has asked for an additional amendment to allow another form of marriage people might want to take advantage of from time to time. "Hey guys, I dunno, can we add, let's say, 'marriage to your own brother' to the list of officially recognized marriages?" said the Congresswoman from Minneapolis. "Like, say, if you want to rig the immigration system in your favor by marrying a relative, maybe we should just go ahead and legalize it, just in case. Not that I...

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said Tuesday it would back proposed federal legislation to safeguard same-sex marriages, marking the latest show of support for the measure from conservative-leaning groups. The nearly 17-million member, Utah-based faith said in a statement that church doctrine would continue to consider same-sex relationships to be against God’s commandments. Yet it said it would support rights for same-sex couples as long as they didn’t infringe upon religious groups’ right to believe as they choose. “We believe this approach is the way forward. As we work together to preserve the principles and practices of...

The Utah-based faith’s doctrine “related to marriage between a man and a woman is well known and will remain unchanged,” according to a news release posted to the church’s website. “We are grateful for the continuing efforts of those who work to ensure the Respect for Marriage Act includes appropriate religious freedom protections while respecting the law and preserving the rights of our LGBTQ...

    That was Sen. Mitt Romney, a Utah Republican, telling MSNBC that he thinks it’s time to bench former President Donald Trump following the GOP’s somewhat lackluster showing in last week’s midterm elections. Despite some pundits predicting a “red wave” of Republican victories that would reclaim control of Congress, Democrats managed to hold onto the Senate, and the GOP picked up fewer seats in the House than expected. And when Romney said he thought Trump was going to announce running for president for a third time on Tuesday, that’s when the senator broke out his “aging pitcher” metaphor. “I know there’s...
