Mitt Romney announces Utah Senate bid

Feb 16, 2018

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced on Friday he would run for a U.S. Senate seat in Utah, confirming months of speculation that he would return to national politics.

“I’ve decided to run for United States Senate because I’ve decided I can help bring Utah’s values and Utah’s lessons to Washington,” Romney, a frequent critic of Republican President Donald Trump, said in a video posted to Twitter.

Romney will be running to replace Republican Senator Orrin Hatch, who announced in January that he would not seek re-election.
