Michigan Native Mitt Romney Runs for US Senate in Utah

Mitt Romney announces bid for Utah Senate seat

Romney is a devout Mormon, and there's a good chance that he'll play up his faith when he's trying to get into Washington; however, a reference to his Mormonism was noticeably absent from his campaign announcement.

His announcement video will suggest that Washington has much to learn from Utah.

Romney, running as a Republican in a blue state, supported abortion rights and gun control measures and said he would offer more effective leadership on gay rights issues than Kennedy.

Romney will pledge to "bring Utah values to Washington, D.C." and plans to run a very Utah-centric campaign, the source said. "Washington send immigrants a message of exclusion".

"If you give me this opportunity, I will owe this Senate seat to no one but the people of Utah", he said.

Trump has called for building a wall on the country's border with Mexico and limiting legal migration. If the White House and pro-Trump super PACs choose to make hay of Romney's history of digs against Trump, the race could get tighter. Jenny Wilson, a Democratic candidate running for Senate in Utah, said this week that "Utah families deserve another Utahn as their senator, not a MA governor who thinks of our state as his vacation home".

"Mitt Romney desperately wants to separate himself from the extremism of the current administration", said Democratic National Committee spokesman Vedant Patel in a statement, but "the basic policies of Trump's GOP ... were his before they were Donald Trump's".

Romney muted his criticism for a time when Mr. Trump auditioned him as a potential secretary of state.

Bush: 'There's pretty clear evidence' That Russia Interfered in 2016 Election
Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication", said Bush during a speech in NY last October. Milken pleaded guilty to securities-law violations in 1990 and served 22 months in prison.

Romney's former running mate House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan welcomed the businessman's return to politics, saying: "This is a terrific day for the United States Senate". Orrin Hatch, the longest serving GOP senator, who announced recently announced his retirement.

The former private equity executive is also known in the state for taking over management of the troubled 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. He then served as governor of MA from 2003 to 2007.

As FOX Business first reported in January, Zwick held a meeting with Romney and a previous chief of staff to Sen.

"The Republican Party has lost its way and Mr. Romney has been complicit in that process", the press release reads. According to the Federal Election Commission, the field includes five other people, including a Salt Lake City councilwoman and a Marine Corps veteran.

Anderson also said that Romney reached out to him in regards to his comments and "accepted my apology without hesitation".

What happened: Romney took leave from his private equity firm to challenge Ted Kennedy for the MA seat that the Democrat held at that point for more than three decades.

The people who provided the information asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about Romney's plans in advance.

Romney has homes in Utah and California.
