A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
The Daily Wire is reporting that former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is in for a Senate run in Utah. Utah governor Gray Herbert allegedly got a text from Mittens and that simply said “I’m running.”
If he’s running he isn’t gonna be running on the Trump agenda, but on the Romney agenda, which is the Republican establishment, Never Trump agenda.
U.S. News reports that Utah Republican Dave Owen has heard people say that Romney wants to be like a John “thumbs down“ McCain like figure, and stand up to the President.
Romney is 70, so the odds of him running for President in 2020 against Trump are slim, but hey, anything is possible, but Romney could lead the fight to find a Never Trump primary challenger to run against Trump. Anything is possible in politics.
I don’t believe they’ll win the nomination, because the base is on Trump’s side, but they could cause problems for Trump.
There is no doubt though, if Romney wins, he’ll be the biggest Never Trumper in the Senate and will do what he can to slow the Trump agenda and try to bring other Senators along with him, especially if Trump’s approval numbers start going down with his base, which I doubt will happen, because they love him.
Trump faced off against Vince McMahon in the WWE Battle of the Billionaires, and looks like we’ll have another battle of the super-rich in the political ring of Romney against Trump. Winner takes the Republican Party, and can keep their hair. They won’t have to shave it if they lose.
