Mitt Romney is a two-time failed presidential candidate and the founder of the Never Trump movement.
And with Donald Trump running for re-election Romney faced a huge decision.
Now Mitt Romney dropped one 2024 bombshell that is a direct threat to Donald Trump.
When Mitt Romney ran for the Senate in 2018 it was assumed Romney would serve one term and then retire.
But Romney is suddenly facing questions about re-election.
Running for re-election, Romney said in an interview with POLITICO, is “frankly, not a question in my mind.”
In the interview Romney admitted that thanks to his left-wing voting record — Romney is indistinguishable from Democrats — he would face a primary challenge, but that Romney believed he could win.
“I’ve faced long odds: Getting the nomination in 2012 was a long shot, becoming a Republican governor in one of the most liberal states in America, Massachusetts. … So I’m convinced that if I run, I win. But that’s a decision I’ll make.”
Romney running for re-election would serve as a referendum on Donald Trump’s leadership of the GOP.
That’s because Romney voted twice to convict Trump in the Democrats’ sham impeachment trials and Romney now defines his political identity as opposition to conservatives.
Romney added that he was “making sure I have the right people” in terms of raising money and talking to voters but that his re-election decision would not come in the foreseeable future. “But I haven’t made a decision, finally. And probably won’t do that anytime in the immediate future.”
RINO Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell lavished praise on Romney for voting like a Democrat and opposing conservative priorities.
McConnell promised to spend millions of dollars to prop up Romney in a primary against likely challenger Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes.
Romney boasted about the deals he cut with Democrats to impose the Green New Deal as well as gutting the Second Amendment with mandatory waiting periods for Americans under the age of 21 and red flag confiscation laws.
“I’m really pleasantly surprised that this was not a lot of sitting around and wringing hands. We got a lot of legislation of significant nature through,” Romney continued.
“He’s been a really important part of our conference. People respect his intelligence, his assessment of the era we find ourselves in. And I think his running for reelection would be very important,” McConnell stated. “It’s important for the Republican Party and the country that he runs again.”
Romney said his desire to run again would be based on if Romney can sell out to Democrats on other bipartisan “compromises” such as amnesty.
“It’s like, what should I do in the time I have left? You know, I’m 75,” Romney said. “I’ve spent 25 years now in public service. And so what comes next? What do I want to accomplish? And, what can be accomplished?”
