Romney to Run for Senate if Hatch Does Not

I don’t know, Utah is a pretty deeply red state. Why can’t Utah send the Senate a severe conservative?

According to Utahpolicy.com:

Sources tell UtahPolicy.com that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is preparing to run for Senate in 2018 if Sen. Orrin Hatch decides to retire.

Sources close to Romney say the two-time presidential candidate will jump into the 2018 Utah Senate scrum if Hatch opts not to.

So far, Hatch has not made up his mind as to whether he’ll run for an eighth term in 2018. He has previously said he was planning on running as long as his and his wife’s health holds up.

Hatch is 105 and had been in the Senate since the 19th century, but that never stops them from running again, so Mitt may not get his shot.

  1. What some folks on the east coast don’t seem to realize is that almost every piece of arable land, i.e., wherever there is a spot of green, in the 4 corner and some surrounding states like Nevada is owned by Mormons. As you know, the powers that be have built a giant place in Utah to collect every piece of meta data ever sent and the almost all the open land in Utah has practically been federalized. Put 2 and 2 together, and you see why the Republican elite would want a Romney in Orrin Hatch’s seat.
