I have seen nothing he has done since his presidential run to convince me he would be good for Utah. And I resent the stories being floated in the press here in Utah that we are clamoring for him to replace Hatch. We are not.

Those who attach RINO to Romney often miss some obvious points. First they insist that to be republican means to never compromise on anything. For example abortion. I deplore it. Most do. However, making abortion illegal is not synonymous with stopping abortions..not even close. Prior to lawful abortion, back-alley abortions were killing women. As a matter of my own personal moral compass I DO NOT believe in abortion. However, I am smart enough to know that my stance does not stop abortions. So, I compromise, not my moral compass, but my acceptance of a human frailty and the need to protect as many lives as possible until a better solution is found. Romney is smart enough to know that compromise is real and a necessary part of democracy as we define it. He would be a great senator.

Depending upon which state you live in, the “flavor”and quality of the local/state Rep. party can vary widely.i am definitely not a “RINO” but could not in a form of good judgement or conscience vote for our current president. I truly think Mr. Romney would be a consistent, fair, and level headed representative of all Utahns.

I agree with Anonymous. I also believe that Romney is a RINO. I would hope we would have someone truly conservative to vote for as a Utah senator. I like and respect the man, but was less than thrilled during his quarrel with Pres. Trump when he utterly refused to back him.

Bad idea. He is a never Trumper which is the same as a Democrat!

It's been a long season between the 2002 Olympics and today. Romney should have beaten Obama! I donated and voted for him. He has now shown me that he doesn't not fully support President Trump by his comments and behavior. The people he invites yearly to his political retreat in Park City show clearly he is a RINO Establishment Republican which we need LESS of, not more of in Washington, D.C. I will not support him in running for the U.S. Senate. However, I think he would make a fine Mission President!
