Mitt Romney Considering 2018 Senate Run For Hatch's Seat

"Mitt Romney would be flawless".

Hatch's seat is up for re-election in 2018.

Current Utah Senator Orrin Hatch is 83 years old and has said recently that he may not seek reelection in 2018 and that Mitt Romney would be a flawless replacement.

"The reality is Utah loves Mitt Romney and there's a reason he rises to the list when people start thinking of replacements for Senator Hatch", Perry said.

Hatch says he hasn't decided whether to run again.

Romney, who lost the presidency to Barack Obama in 2012, is the first Mormon nominated to lead a major party's ticket for the White House and is highly regarded in Utah; however, he has been an open critic of President Donald Trump.

Earlier in the week, The Atlantic reported that McConnell had encouraged the Republican's 2012 presidential nominee to run for Senate if Hatch decides he's done, assuring Romney he would have more influence than other first-time senators.

He said Romney "would be ideal". "Obviously, I'm an Orrin Hatch supporter".

70-year-old Romney had no publicly commented on the speculation, but an anonymous close friend believes that the former governor would be eager to enter the political arena again. "Hatch and not make a move until he does", said Jason Perry, head of the University of Utah's Hinckley Institute of Politics.

During the presidential campaign, Romney called Trump a "fraud" and a "phony".

"I do think he's bored", the Romney associate said.

Stewart said while the action will not remove President Bashar al-Assad or solve the "horrifying humanitarian disaster" there, destroying the airfield will help prevent future attacks on his own people.
