Former Governor of Massachutses and Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney is expect to announce his run for U.S. Senate in Utah via social medial later today.
From The Washington Examiner:
Mitt Romney will launch his Utah Senate campaign Thursday morning with a low key announcement on social media, and will make his first public appearance a day later near Salt Lake City with a keynote address to a gathering of grassroots Republicans.
Romney teased his run for Senate in a Feb. 1 tweet, saying that he would have an announcement to make on Feb. 15. On Wednesday, Romney previewed his campaign again in a short Facebook post. Sources in Utah told the Washington Examiner that Romney that will officially jump into the 2018 Senate race with a digital announcement, rather than holding at a staged rally with supporters.
Romney for a couple of weeks has been scheduled to be in Provo on Friday to headline the Utah County Republican Party Lincoln Day dinner. Like most of the state, Utah County is heavily Republican. The region is also among the most populous and politically influential in statewide campaigns.
Mitt Romney hasn't officially announced he is running for Senate yet, but he's already been receiving endorsements.
Romney spoke privately and said he intends to run, and that appeared to be enough to receive and endorsement from Jeb Bush..
washingtonexaminer.com reports: Former Florida governor and 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush endorsed a Senate run by Mitt Romney on Monday.
“Mitt would make a phenomenal addition to the U.S. Senate. I hope he runs,” Bush tweeted, sharing a tweet from Romney.
In his own tweet, Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, denounced comments President Trump made during a bipartisan meeting with senators last week on an immigration deal. During the gathering, Trump referred to El Salvador, Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries."
