Romney, a two-time presidential candidate and former governor of MA, is also scheduled to speak at a Utah County GOP event Friday evening.

Romney, a wealthy former governor of MA, has homes in Utah and California.

"Out of respect for the victims and their families, I will not be making an announcement tomorrow about the Senate race", he tweeted.

For those GOP senators that have already taken up the mantle and spoken out when they believe President Trump has overstepped the boundaries of American political decorum, a Senator Romney who is willing to continue that push back is welcome.

Evan McMullin, a former presidential candidate and "Never Trump" activist, urged Romney to run for the open Senate seat in Utah to replace Sen. He would have been up for re-election in November. Orrin Hatch, an 83-year-old Republican who announced his retirement early last month.

"I know he served as governor and ran in a presidential race and did a lot of work to understand foreign policy issues", Corker told ABC News this week, "I think he's going to be a strong voice on multiple issues, personally".

The video, produced by veteran Romney advisers and running over two minutes in length, will recall Romney's role leading the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and put an emphasis on "Utah values", according to several people close to him who were not authorized to discuss the campaign publicly. His first public appearance as a Senate candidate is scheduled for Friday in Provo. Now with Romney potentially occupying a seat Congress' upper chamber, those tensions between him and the president are sure to resurface.

"I regret that my comments about potential Senatorial candidate, Mitt Romney, came across as disparaging and unsupportive", Anderson said in a statement. Flake also said he met with Romney "a couple of weeks ago".

Mr. Trump endorsed Mr. Romney's presidential campaign in 2012, but their relationship soured in 2016 when Mr. Romney delivered a speech to call the New York Republican a "phony" and a "fraud".

Other Utah Republicans have encouraged Romney to run. Sen.

"Nobody wants to go out there like David and Goliath and get defeated by the Romney machine", he said.

Romney has named MJ Henshaw, a veteran of Utah politics who worked for former GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, as his communications director. I don't think he'd do this just to poke Trump in the eye.

Salt Lake County Council member Jenny Wilson, a Democrat, is also running for the seat and has said the victory of Sen.
