Mitt Romney says he is not ready to commit to endorsing President Trump for reelection in 2020.
“I will make that decision down the road,” Romney told CNN at the Utah GOP convention on Saturday. “As a person of political experience, if I endorse someone, I’ll want to know what’s in it for Utah and what help would he provide for us on key priorities in Utah.”
“So I’m not a cheap date,” he added.
The article goes on to state the following:
The 2012 Republican presidential nominee is at the Utah convention to secure the party’s nomination for Senate. Romney is running for the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch (R).
The Hill also reported that, in a surprising turn of events, Romney failed to secure the Utah Republican Party’s nomination for Senate on Saturday, triggering a June primary.
In the final round of voting at the party’s convention, state Rep. Mike Kennedy (R) won 50.88 percent of the vote, with Romney following with 49.12 percent.
Despite their past disagreements, President Trump did endorse Romney in February, tweeting, “[email protected] has announced he is running for the Senate from the wonderful State of Utah. He will make a great Senator and worthy successor to @OrrinHatch, and has my full support and endorsement!”
However, Romney is not returning the favor.
