McConnell reaches out to Romney about possible Senate bid

Posted April 08, 2017

Now that is not to say that Romney - a relatively youthful-looking and quite vigorous man - would stand out in the Senate. But citing several sources familiar with his thinking, The Atlantic reports Romney is apparently mulling another run at the upper chamber - this time to replace longtime Sen.

The Atlantic's McKay Coppins first reported Romney's mullings on Thursday, saying Romney has "spent recent weeks actively discussing a potential 2018 Senate bid with a range of high-level Republicans in both Utah and Washington". Orrin Hatch decides to retire, Romney could be ready to take his place. A popular politician in the Beehive State, Romney would be considered a likely front-runner and also a potential thorn in the side of President Donald Trump.

Although he was raised in Michigan, Romney has strong links to the state of Utah, owning a vacation home in Salt Lake City, as well as holding an honorary doctorate from the University of Utah.

He is the longest-serving Republican in the Senate - first elected in 1976.

He said Romney "would be flawless".

Later, Whitlock said in a statement that while Hatch "has occasionally offered off-hand speculation about his future, he remains laser-focused on his work in the Senate and has not yet made a decision about running for re-election".

"I do think he's bored", the Romney associate said.
