Donald Trump mocked Mitt Romney on Thursday, claiming the Utah senator would struggle to win an election in the state. This is despite Romney’s huge popularity there.

Former Utah legislator Sheryl Allen has called on the Republican National Committee (RNC) to remove 4th Congressional District candidate Burgess Owens from its list of speakers because Owens is a QAnon conspiracy theorist.
