Will Mitt Romney Get Orrin Hatch’s Senate Seat? | CNBC

Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney is expected to run for the Senate seat in Utah that will soon be vacated by Orrin Hatch. Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts and a prominent critic of President Donald Trump, has been living in Utah since 2013. While he has not officially declared his candidacy, sources close to him say he is seriously considering it. If he runs and wins, Romney would become a powerful voice in the Republican Party and could potentially challenge Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
