John McCain may be seriously ill, but his “spirit” lives on in the Republican Party, with Mitt Romney clearly angling to become the latest #NeverTrump hero:
Mitt Romney says he is not ready to commit to endorsing President Trump for reelection in 2020.
“I will make that decision down the road,” Romney told CNN at the Utah GOP convention on Saturday. “As a person of political experience, if I endorse someone, I’ll want to know what’s in it for Utah and what help would he provide for us on key priorities in Utah.”
“So I’m not a cheap date,” he added.
The 2012 Republican presidential nominee is at the Utah convention to secure the party’s nomination for Senate. Romney is running for the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch (R).
The relationship soured again though after he was passed up for the job. Romney criticized Trump for his response to the violence in Charlottesville, Va., last year and other actions. Trump also encouraged Hatch repeatedly to run for reelection.
Hopefully Utah voters will make the right choice, send this carpetbagger packing, and bring an end to this stealth Democrat’s career once and for all.
