Mitt Romney reportedly announcing run for US Senate on Thursday

Mitt Romney Will Announce Senate Run on Thursday Mitt Romney Reportedly Launching a Campaign to Become Senator of Utah

In that role, he would oversee the fundraising arm for Senate Republicans and help to vet potential candidates. He has the name recognition to start a national discussion or advance it.

Romney went on to talk about the now-president's failed businesses. Romney, running as a Republican in a blue state, supported abortion rights and gun control measures and said he would offer more effective leadership on gay rights issues than Kennedy. He warned that Trump's economic policies could "instigate a trade war" and "balloon the deficit and national debt". The former Governor is an outspoken critic of Trump, and has routinely called the Commander-in-Chief a "phony" and a "fraud".

Romney changed his tune after Trump's election.

The comments were some of the harshest during a bitter 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump later chose Rex Tillerson to lead the State Department.

President Trump rejected having Romney serve as his secretary of state, choosing Rex Tillerson, instead. Trump supported Roy Moore - a man accused of sexually abusing teens decades ago - in last year's Alabama Senate special election.

Romney will likely cruise to the GOP nomination and victory in November. Romney is carefully designing his campaign launch to avoid media questions about Trump. When Hatch announced his retirement in January, Trump and Romney spoke on the phone.

Sources close to Romney told NBC News that the former MA governor will make his announcement in a video message rather than a large-scale rally. "Why does he want to run for this seat?" Will he use the Senate floor as a platform to denounce Trump's assault on the free press, his character assassination of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or his attacks on fellow Republicans whom the president blandishes as disloyal?

Both former Romney aides consider taxes and some other economic policies areas in which Romney and Trump could cooperate. Romney would undoubtedly become one of the most well-known members of the Senate upon his arrival, and speculation over which coveted committee assignments he might seek is already well underway.
