In A Hilarious Twist, Mitt Romney Wants To Run For Senate To Troll Donald Trump

Utah Republicans are trying to convince 83-year-old Sen. Orrin Hatch to retire so that they can run Trump critic Mitt Romney for Senate.

The Atlantic reported, “Republican leaders and high-powered donors in Utah are waging a quiet but concerted campaign to convince 83-year-old incumbent Senator Orrin Hatch not to seek reelection next year—and now, they may have found a successor. Mitt Romney, the one-time presidential nominee and leading Trump critic, is exploring a run for Hatch’s Senate seat. According to six sources familiar with the situation, Romney has spent recent weeks actively discussing a potential 2018 Senate bid with a range of high-level Republicans in both Utah and Washington, and has privately signaled a growing interest in the idea. Romney, though, has made clear he would not pursue the seat without Hatch’s blessing.”

Romney never wanted to leave national politics after the 2012 election, and it would be downright funny to see him replace Orrin Hatch in the Senate. Romney has made his distaste for Trump very clear, which would make him the perfect senator for Utah, which as a state has collectively made its feelings well known about Trump.

If Romney were to become a senator, he would be one of the more moderate Republicans in the caucus. He would also be a frequent target for the wrath of Trump. Romney wants to be on the national stage and giving him a platform in the Senate to troll Trump is his gosh and golly fashion would be some sweet comic relief.

I have my doubts whether Utah Republicans can convince Hatch to retire, but if they do, Romney in the Senate would be another pain in the neck for Donald Trump.
