According to Romney “I have decided to run for United States Senate because I believe I can help bring Utah’s values and Utah’s lessons to Washington,”

Romney had retreated from the national spotlight after losing the 2012 presidential election to then-President Barack Obama. he re-emerged on the political scene as a powerful voice calling out the inflammatory statements and conduct of President Donald Trump.

Romney’s fiery rebukes of Trump’s crude comments on topics ranging from the character of Mexican immigrants to sexual harassment made him a hero of the #NeverTrump movement and a set of Democratic admirers.

His criticism of Trump has been notable seeing that he was once considered by Trump as a candidate for secretary of state, a courtship that many friends of Romney later viewed as a token gesture by Trump to generate publicity.
