    Mitt Romney moves toward senate bid

    Suspect the seat is his if he wants it.

    Mitt Romney is edging closer to a 2018 Senate run.

    The former GOP presidential nominee is huddling with Utah’s class of GOP power brokers, contacting the state’s major political donors, and hitting the trail for candidates running in local races amid mounting speculation that the state’s longtime senator, Orrin Hatch, will retire. Romney is also raising money for House and Senate Republicans, winning him favor with GOP leaders ahead of a treacherous midterm election.

    The Senate might seem like an unexpected landing place for the 70-year-old former Massachusetts governor and two-time presidential candidate. Yet those who’ve spoken with Romney in recent days are convinced he’s prepared to jump in. After falling short in his quest for the White House and then being passed over by President Donald Trump for secretary of state, friends say Romney still has unquenched political ambitions.

    Wait. I remember the meme that he's a reluctant politician... didn't really like politics.

    LOL

    Look at his relationship to the Mormon church, to the revival of Bain and Company, his charitable giving and other activities and it's clear he wants to try and make a difference.

    That does not mean he's a natural, star power pol like Obama.

    You always argue against things I didn't say. Never even mentioned he was a "natural".

    No. President Obama was definitely the better politician. Still, it's Utah, so I'm sure he'll be a shoo-in.

    I do hope the story is true though. The country will be better off if Orrin Hatch is replaced by a moderate like Mitt Romney.

    Romney would be a good Senator from Utah. That's a good role for him.

    Should be a very easy win for him as well. As I recall Evan McMullin said he would run for Hatchs seat but not if Romney stepped in.

    So, now suddenly the 47% matter will not matter anymore?
