Mitt Romney, the former Republican Governor of Massachusetts is on way to becoming a US Senator from Utah….
He leads his opponent out there by the double digits….
A sleepy Utah Senate race was always a small playing field for a former presidential nominee. Now, Mitt Romney is going national again.
After spending most of the past year quietly tending to his own race, Romney is using his formidable national profile and expansive political network to elect embattled Republicans across the country. Weeks before his virtually assured election to the Senate, the 2012 Republican standard-bearer is issuing endorsements, appearing in TV ads and fundraising for hopefuls up and down the ballot.
The burst of campaign activity is a stark reminder that the 71-year-old Romney will arrive in D.C. as much more than a typical freshman senator — and shows how he plans to use his prominence to reward allies and forge relationships.
Romney is going to bat for candidates for offices ranging from the state Legislature to the U.S. Senate. Among those getting help is Rep. Mia Love, a deeply vulnerable Republican from his own state of Utah. She recently released a TV commercial featuring Romney speaking directly to the camera and declaring: “I’ve known Mia Love for many years. I trust her.”
Romney’s push has extended from Mormon-heavy Arizona, where he traveled last week to headline a rally for Senate hopeful Martha McSally, to the Northern Virginia suburbs, where he’s donated to Rep. Barbara Comstock. He has weighed in for Utah’s entire U.S. House delegation: In addition to Love, he’s cut a TV ad for Rep. Rob Bishop, hosted a campaign event for Rep. Chris Stewart, and on Wednesday evening joined Rep. John Curtis for a phone-banking session aimed at helping the congressman turn out the vote.
Behind the scenes, other Republican candidates are reaching out to Romney for help…..
Media types are gonna start writing stories about ANOTHER possible Romney run for the Presidency in 2020, even before he takes his first step in the US Senate in Wash. DC……(Romney says Trump will be re-elected)….
