Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch to retire; Romney could run
03 January, 2018, 02:06
Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, announced Tuesday he will retire at the end of his term, ending months of speculation about the political future of the chamber's longest-serving Republican senator in history.
At the time, Conway wouldn't say with certainty if Mr. Trump would support Romney in a potential Senate bid.
"Every good fighter knows when to hang up the gloves".
When news broke that Orrin Hatch will not run for re-election, social media erupted with photos of a steely-eyed Mitt Romney on a horse, set against a stormy sky.
"Congratulations to Senator Orrin Hatch on an absolutely incredible career", Trump tweeted Tuesday evening.
Romney pilloried Trump in a March 2016 speech, calling him a "phony" and "a fraud".
At a rally for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, Bannon called Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee, a draft dodger who "hid behind" his religion.
But as it became clear that Romney would likely run if Hatch bowed out, Matheson withdrew from contention - an acknowledgment that the 2012 Republican presidential nominee is wildly popular in Utah and would have little trouble securing the seat.
But Romney has also continued to criticize the President.
"It would be hard to defeat Mitt Romney if he were running here", said David Hansen, a longtime Utah Republican strategist and chairman of Mr. Hatch's political organization. Over golf, Trump asked Sen.
Hatchs decision comes just weeks after Trump signed a sweeping tax overhaul into law, a measure that the senator helped write as chairman of the Finance Committee. Last month, Mr. Trump spoke to Romney, according to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.
"It would be hard to defeat Mitt Romney if he were running here", said David Hansen, a longtime Utah Republican strategist and chairman of Hatchs political organization.
Huckabee Sanders said it is premature to speculate as to whether Trump would campaign for the Republican candidate who will emerge in Utah. "Hatch more than anybody". "If he doesn't, the voters should end it for him", the editorial concluded.
