Traitor Mitt Romney Undecided on Running for Reelection As Chances of Securing the Nomination Look Poor

Via Matt Margolis, the Severe Conservative may be thinking of retiring to spend more time with his Morning Joe.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) says he hasn't decided whether to run for reelection in 2024, when he could be on the same ballot as Donald Trump if the former president seeks another bid for the White House.

...

"I'm going to cross that bridge down the road. I haven't given a lot of attention yet," he said following his vote for Jackson, the first Black woman to be confirmed to the Supreme Court....

Romney, 75, hasn't spent much energy on fundraising. His Senate campaign account reported $473,000 in cash on hand at the end of 2021 -- only $215,000 more than what he reported after winning his Senate seat in 2018.

Utah's GOP has a primary system in which the party faithful nominates their candidate. Only if someone can get enough signatures on a petition is there a primary election.

That's how Romney got the nomination in 2018. He was not chosen by the party, but then garnered enough signatures to force a primary election, which he did win.

He has potential competition from the Attorney General, Sena Reyes, who supported Trump's efforts to challenge the 2020 election results, and from Jason Chaffetz.



"I think that's why he is giving this some pause. He will have a tough race with the Republican nomination process," said Richard Davis, a professor emeritus of political science at Brigham Young University.

...

"Either one of them would be a formidable opponent for Romney within the Republican Party because he has made himself persona non grata with many of the conservative Republicans," Davis. "He's actually more popular with Democrats and independents than he is with Republicans right now. So getting past the Republican primary would be a tough one."

By the way: The article notes something I forgot or never knew: Romney was personally recruited to run for the Senate in 2017 by... Mitch McConnell, despite the Utah Republican Party already having a favorite son. They nominated someone else, and Romney collected signatures to beat that conservative candidate.

Of course. Of course.

Great job, Mitch. You recruited a liberal in a state where any conservative with a pulse and clean criminal record could win.


Now tell me that Bitch McConnell just keeps making "mistakes." As opposed to stocking the Senate with liberals deliberately.

This is Bitch McConnell's palace intrigue bullshit, putting liberals in the Senate so that he has allies against conservative challengers in the Senate, and against Trump.

He thinks his personal power is so important it's worth filling the Senate with liberals to keep it.

It's time for conservatives to tell him otherwise.
