Mitt Romney faces Senate major in Utah after state GOP conference setback

Trump and Romney forgive and forget Mitt Romney faces Senate major in Utah after state GOP conference setback

Mr. Romney, a former governor of MA and the Republican candidate for president in 2012, remains the heavy favorite to win the Senate seat in November. Karl Rove offers his take. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), came in second place after a lengthy and contentious party convention in Utah's West Valley City.

Romney needed at least 60 percent of the votes from delegates at the Utah GOP convention Saturday to head to the November election unopposed, but he earned only 49.12 percent, CNN and other media reported.

Mitt Romney faces an intriguing hurdle in his bid to be the USA senator from Utah this weekend when he seeks the blessing of far-right leaning delegates at the state convention against a field of 11 competitors.

In remarks following the vote, Romney retained an optimistic tone.

"I'm delighted with the end result". Did very, very well, ' Romney told Salt Lake City's Fox 13 following his defeat. "And I hope to be able to get the job done for the people of Utah".

Kennedy, too, was happy with the outcomes, the station reported.

The delegates in the convention tend to become more conservative than Utah'therefore electorate, " the newspaper noted.

There are 2 comments on the The New York Times story from 7 hrs ago, titled Mitt Romney Fails to Bypass Utah Primary for U.S. Senate.

Most of the candidates Romney went up against questioned his criticism of President Donald Trump and the depth of his ties to the state.

Romney is emphasizing his local connections and intent to use his clout to help Utah, where he's known for his role in turning around the 2002 Winter Olympics and becoming the first Mormon presidential nominee of a major political party. Trump fired back that Romney "choked like a dog" during his own White House run.

The president said on Twitter in February that Romney "will make a great Senator and worthy successor to @OrrinHatch, and has my full support and endorsement!"

Hatch, 83, the longest-serving Republican within the Senate, introduced his retirement plans a number of months in the past, regardless of efforts by President Trump to persuade him to remain in Washington.
