Could Romney take Hatch's place in the Senate?
Hatch reiterated Friday that he still intends to run for re-election in 2018, but said that if he decides not to run, he would want Romney to run for his seat.
Current Utah Senator Orrin Hatch is 83 years old and has said recently that he may not seek reelection in 2018 and that Mitt Romney would be a flawless replacement. "If I could get a really outstanding person to run for my position, I might very well consider [retiring]", Hatch told National Journal.
'While it's no secret that I hold Mitt Romney in extraordinarily high esteem, my musing aloud on the subject has apparently snowballed into a frenzy of premature speculation, ' Hatch said. Mitt Romney, the one-time presidential nominee and leading Trump critic, is exploring a run for Hatch's Senate seat.
The Atlantic article also says "two people close to Romney say he didn't show a real interest in the Senate race until Jon Huntsman Jr., former Utah governor and longtime rival, began to consider a bid". During his bid for the White House in 2012, he won the state in the primary with 93 percent of the vote, and dominated former President Barack Obama with 72.62 percent.
The former MA governor and 2012 GOP presidential candidate is reportedly exploring a run in Utah, according to The Atlantic. If he wants to run again I'm for him, ' McConnell said.
