    Veterans of Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign are eyeing an alliance with Joseph R. Biden, looking to make a splash in announcing they have turned their backs on the GOP this year and will support the presumptive Democratic nominee instead. Micah Spangler, who was a staffer in southern Florida for the Republican Party during the race, told fellow campaign vets in emails Friday and over the weekend that he is working with the Biden team “to cultivate a network of Romney alums that want to help elect Joe in November.” In a separate email to The Washington Times, he said...

"No Americans should fear enmity and harm from those sworn to protect us. The death of George Floyd must not be in vain: Our shock and outrage must grow into collective determination to extinguish forever such racist abuse."

    Sen. Mitt Romney said Saturday that it's "very likely" that he'll be in favor of calling witnesses in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, but won't decide until after opening arguments. "I think it's very likely I'll be in favor of witnesses, but I haven't made a decision finally yet and I won't until the testimony is completed," the Utah Republican said, following the first day of the Trump team's opening arguments. Asked if he thought the defense team was effective, Romney replied, "I just don't have any comments on the process or the evidence until the trial is...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) told the Atlantic on Sunday that he believes the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry investigating President Donald Trump will serve as an “inflection point in American history.” Atlantic staff writer McKay Coppins released an interview on Sunday detailing extended conversations with Romney regarding his views on the U.S. Senate, his attacks on President Trump, as well as his opinions on impeachment. Coppins wrote that while most Republicans have backed the president amidst the impeachment inquiry, Romney continues to stay “open to the idea that the president may need to be evicted from the Oval Office.”Sen. Romney said that he believes that...

    In recent days, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) has been fielding calls from GOP donors itching for him to primary President Trump in 2020, a person close to Romney told Vanity Fair. "There is a half-billion dollars on the sidelines from guys who are fed up with Trump," one donor told Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman. Romney has been one of the few Republican voices to speak out against Trump's attempts to get foreign leaders to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, tweeting on Friday that his "brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine ... is wrong and appalling." This...

    President Trump said in a tweet early Sunday that Democrats are “lucky” not to have any “Mitt Romney types” after the Republican senator said Trump’s call for China and Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was “wrong and appalling.” "The Democrats are lucky that they don’t have any Mitt Romney types," Trump tweeted. "They may be lousy politicians, with really bad policies (Open Borders, Sanctuary Cities etc.), but they stick together!"

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a heavy favorite in the race to replace retiring Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, ducked questions about his previous attacks on President Trump during a debate on Tuesday night. Romney called Trump a "phony, a fraud" during the 2016 presidential campaign, and said he was playing the American people for "suckers." He also said that candidate Trump's "promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University" -- prompting Trump to hit back and call Romney, who lost his bid to challenge President Barack Obama in 2012, a disloyal "choke artist." But on Tuesday, when...

    A fun leftover from this Friday profile of Romney’s sureshot Senate campaign in Utah. News broke this afternoon that he was treated successfully for prostate cancer this past year, a personal detail that doubtless would have remained private unless he was about to reenter public life and wanted any information that might give voters pause disclosed early, before his next campaign begins in earnest. He’s getting in. And he’s going full anti-Trump.

    Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney revealed Friday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton encouraged him to think about being President Trump's secretary of State. Romney, who is also the former governor of Massachusetts, made the comments at his annual political summit in Park City, Utah. While he was a vocal Trump critic during the presidential campaign, Romney was under consideration to be Trump’s secretary of State before Trump picked Rex Tillerson, who was then serving as CEO of Exxon Mobil Corp. Romney said he would have been willing to serve as the country’s top diplomat if Trump offered...

    After a bitter primary fight in 2008, Mitt Romney is coming to Arizona Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) defense. After reports surfaced that McCain primary challenger Kelli Ward was re-using a 2008 Romney attack ad against McCain as her own, Romney's ghost campaign sent a cease and desist letter demanding Ward take down her Facebook ad immediately. "Romney for President has not authorized your use of its protected material," the letter, which was provided to TPM reads. "Your campaign has engaged in blatant infringement of RFP's protected work and must cease and desist immediately." The ad's identical resemblance to Romney's 2008...

    Personal Liberty ^ | 7/1/2016 | Staff
    Last year, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney was serious about making one last bid for the White House. Only after realizing that Jeb Bush had already secured pledges from most of the top Republican donors did he decide to sit out the 2016 election. Of course, as it turned out, Bush – even with a reported $100 million war chest – could barely make a blip on the electoral radar. In the year of Donald Trump, the former Florida governor was just another victim. Since then, Romney has become one of Trump’s biggest and most outspoken detractors. When the primary...

    Mitt Romney suggested Friday that Donald Trump's election could legitimize racism and misogyny, ushering in a change in the moral fabric of American society. The 2012 Republican nominee, who has openly opposed Trump's candidacy, went further than he has before in outlining to CNN's Wolf Blitzer how the country's character would suffer in a Trump White House. Trump's rhetoric has caused even some other Republicans to label him a racist, and Romney said he would not be able to paper over his incendiary remarks.
