Mitt Romney and the rest of the swamp are plotting against Donald Trump.
They refuse to accept his victory and want him replaced as President.
Now Romney and establishment power brokers are huddling in closed-door meetings about an unthinkable challenge to Trump.
Romney – has been rejected by the voters in two Presidential bids – is a RINO who was thought to have failed at achieving his goal of becoming a career politician and swamp creature.
Now – with the failing health of John McCain and the retirements of Jeff Flake and Bob Corker – the establishment needs a new open borders, chamber of commerce moderate to fight Donald Trump.
Romney has been talking about running to replace Utah Senator Orrin Hatch.
But the rationale for his candidacy is not to advance a conservative agenda or defeat the Democrats.
Romney’s only reason for running is to stand up to Trump.
“Two veteran Romney hands and gatekeepers, Spencer Zwick and Matt Waldrip, have begun reaching out to senior Republicans to take their temperature on the political atmosphere in the state.
Romney, a devout Mormon who currently resides in Holladay, Utah, has taken steps to increase his visibility on the state’s political scene. After the new year, he cut a tribute video that played at an event for Gov. Gary Herbert. This summer, he issued an endorsement for Katie Witt, a former Romney campaign staffer and candidate for mayor of Kaysville, a small city in the eastern part of the state.
Romney also backed Utah Rep.-elect John Curtis, and is expected to host an event for him before the end of the year. On Monday, Romney’s spouse, Ann, sent out a tweet promoting the couple’s support for Curtis.
Romney, who built a sizable fundraising network during his 2008 and 2012 presidential runs, is also giving his party a hand in races beyond Utah. He recently traveled to Massachusetts to host an event for Gov. Charlie Baker, who is up for reelection next year. Next month, he’s slated to attend a New York City donor retreat hosted by House Speaker Paul Ryan, his former vice presidential running mate. The former governor has also been making fundraising calls for Congressional Leadership Fund, a pro-House GOP super PAC, and is expected to host an event for the organization in California early next year.
Over the course of the year, Romney has been active in Idaho and Arizona, both of which border Utah and have heavy Mormon populations. He held a fundraising event for Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake prior to the Republican’s announcement that he wouldn’t seek reelection in 2018.
People close to Romney envision him running as a senior statesman-like figure — one who won’t reflexively oppose the administration but is willing to air his differences with Trump. Appearing before a donor conference in Park City, Utah in June, Romney offered up an implicit jab of Trump’s America-first approach to foreign policy and said the White House was too consumed with palace intrigue.”
Romney in the Senate would do everything in his power to sabotage Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.
Establishment RINOs like Romney, Mitch McConnell, and other swamp things would much prefer a Democrat they could “do business with” than a populist conservative outsider like Trump.
They would also use Trump’s defeat to seize back control of the party from the grassroots and hand it back to the big money boys in the donor class.
Would you oppose a RINO like Mitt Romney if he ran for Senate?
