Romney announced his campaign via the following Twitter video on February 16, 2018, and is looking to take the seat of the longtime Utah Senator Orrin Hatch. The former-presidential candidate seems to have solidified his relationship with President Trump and is poised to take the seat thanks in part to his shining endorsement from the president.
