    Romney mulling Senate bid


    Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is considering a 2018 Senate run in Utah and is looking to pose a challenge to President Trump from Congress’s upper chamber, according to a report from Politico.

    Romney, who is the former governor of Massachusetts and ran for president in 2008 and 2012, has reportedly met with Utah’s political power class, as well as prominent donors in the state.

    The former governor has attended the same events as influential Utah politicians including Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and state Senate President Wayne Niederhauser (R). He has also campaigned for various candidates across the country, including Idaho Republican gubernatorial candidate Tommy Ahlquist.

    Sources close to Romney told Politico that he would be willing to play an opposing role to Trump in the Senate.
