Donald Trump Endorses Mitt Romney In Utah Senate Race

The Utah Senate race just got a little more interesting.

Moments ago President and God-Emperor Donald J. Trump tweeted his full-throated support for Mitt Romney in the Utah Senate race:

Many of Trump’s supporters seemed decidedly unhappy with the endorsement.

Many on the right are probably questioning why Donald Trump is endorsing one of his most ardent critics. Let’s not forget that this is the man who held a press conference condemning Trump during the 2016 campaign. Trump humiliated Mitt by dangling the Secretary of State position in front of him not long after his election. Why on earth would The Donald endorse Mitt Romney of all people?

My thought is that Romney is going to win in Utah. Despite the disdain conservatives feel for Mitt he is fairly popular in Utah. In fact, Romney managed to win 73% of the vote in Utah against Barack Obama in 2012. Romney would seem to be a shoe-in to win Utah easily. I’d wager President Trump knows this and figures the safest course of action is to bite the bullet and endorse Mittens.

The other possibility is that Trump has secured Romney’s cooperation in exchange for Trump’s endorsement. President Trump carried Utah by 45% in the 2016 election and had a fairly comfortable 20 point lead over Hillary in the state. We also can’t forget that Trump’s popularity has been inching up in general, and his approval rating on the economy is fairly high. Romney probably wants to tap into that power to ensure his flawless victory over the Democrat opponent.

Whatever the reason for President Trump’s endorsement, the Utah Senate race just got a little more interesting.

Pass the popcorn.
