Trump endorses Mitt Romney for Senate despite past name-calling between the two

Trump endorses Mitt Romney for Senate despite past name-calling between the two

President Donald Trump and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney set aside their differences on Twitter Monday evening, when the President tweeted a "full support" endorsement of the Republican Utah Senate candidate and Romney embraced the backing. Orrin Hatch's (R-Utah) enhanced background bill, which he said he's been briefed on and would "probably support".

The two have not always gotten along in the past.

"Utah voters rejected numerous things that Trump was very outspoken about, and they rejected sort of the tone and tenor of his candidacy", said Katie Packer Beeson, a GOP consultant who served as Romney deputy campaign manager in 2012 and led an anti-Trump super PAC in 2016.

One asked where he stands on President Trump, to which Romney responded that he was generally with the president on policy, but not much else.

Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee who blasted Trump during the 2016 race, announced his Senate campaign in a video Friday. In an interview Friday, Romney told the Daily Herald, "Where the president has said something or tweeted something that I thought was important, and where I disagreed, then I pointed that out".

Brighton defender Connor Goldson: Coventry made it tough

Hatch, the longest-serving Republican in Congress, announced his retirement in January.

Former GOP rivals Donald Trump and Mitt Romney once dined together after Trump snagged a White House victory. Orrin Hatch's almost 40 years of experience, connections, seniority and influence in Washington, D.C. Hatch's retirement creates a new opportunity for Utah voters, and aspiring politicians, to demonstrate just exactly what message they will send to the federal government about the successful, conservative ways Utah, in contrast, gets business done. According to Utah Republican Party Chairman Rob Anderson, Romney is "keeping out candidates that I think would be a better fit for Utah".

While many have viewed Romneys running a foregone conclusion, with polls showing him far and away the favored candidate, some have expressed concerns regarding the perceived inevitability of Romney winning the seat. He then served as governor of MA from 2003 to 2007.

Romney has homes in Utah and California and Larry Meyers, an attorney who also is seeking the Republican nomination, questioned his ties to Utah. "We go into this clear-eyed that this is going to be quite a challenging election".
