Mitt Romney Launches Run For Utah Senate Seat

While the video largely avoids directly addressing policy issues, he does reference the heated immigration debate in the U.S. capital, arguing: "Utah welcomes legal immigrants from around the world - Washington sends immigrants a message of exclusion".

In an apparent dig at President Trump's penchant for engaging in feuds with other public figures, Romney declared that at the Utah Capitol Building, "people treat others with respect".

Romney unsuccessfully ran for a Senate seat in 1994, but rose to political prominence as Governor of MA.

"As a business person he understands the nature of being transactional". The voters have no patience for Trump's Twitter antics or "locker room talk" - there was even a slight decline in Mormons affiliating with the Republican Party during Trump's nomination. "Washington sends immigrants a message of exclusion".

The former governor also touted Utah's economy. "I think you're going to see America continue to lead the world in this century". "Hatch or the rest of Utah's delegation", Cox said. Janna and I adore Mitt and Ann.
