In sports, if a team obliterates their opponent in one game, there’s a tendency for that team to assume the same result in the future. Sometimes this sports analogy works in politics as well. There have been certain exceptionally popular politicians who get reelected without much issue.

But the political landscape is ever-changing. It can be especially different between runs for the U.S. Senate. U.S. Senate terms are six years long, so the burden of getting voters to reelect them only happens every six years.

Nevertheless, even the most popular members of the upper chamber try not to be overly confident. That doesn’t seem to be the case with one Utah senator who’ll be on the ballot in 2024. Mitt Romney appears to be rather confident in his chances.

Recently, Romney did an interview with Politico. The first-term Utah senator was asked if he planned to seek a second term. Romney responded, “I’m convinced that if I run, I win.” Pretty confident stance by a Republican who constantly took jabs at the face of his own party.

Romney wasn’t shy about ridiculing former President Donald Trump. In fact, Mitt Romney was the only Republican senator to vote to impeach the former president twice. He went rogue in the first impeachment by being the only senator to vote, “aye.”

Six other GOP senators joined Romney during the second sham impeachment. Both failed. But the question isn’t so much whether Romney will run without President Trump’s support as it is whether Utah voters will object to the way he turned his own party’s president.

It seems a little arrogant to just assume you have an election in the bag just because you decide to run. Romney did dominate his primary opponent in 2018. He coasted to victory in the general election the following November. Romney may well have reason to be confident.

But since he coasted through his first election to the U.S. Senate, Romney has ticked off a number of Republicans. Nevertheless, he hasn’t ticked off D.C.’s top Republican brass. Kentucky Senator and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell strongly supports Romney.

Other members of the GOP leadership are also behind a Romney bid for reelection. McConnell even went so far as to tell Politico, “It’s important for the Republican Party and the country that he runs again.” Romney may have good reason to be confident.

While he doesn’t see eye-to-eye with President Trump, Romney is still a well-known face. However, like in sports, there are the occasional “upsets.” They usually happen to teams that grow overly confident. Republicans don’t need to look much past the recent 2022 midterms for proof of that.

  • I choose Trump, Desantis, or both … these two are proven producers for America.

    What the heck does Romney have in the way of proven results? Romneycare? Votes to impeach? Friendships with Leftists & globalists?

    No thanks, Mitt — please — just go away.

  • I had the misfortune of living in Massachusetts at the time RINO Mitt Romney was governor and I can tell you he was useless then and he is even worse now. He jumps around the country to anywhere that he thinks he can be elected. However, he is dreaming if he thinks the country as a whole wants him to be president. I know for certain that most Republicans know what a turncoat RINO he is and they will not vote for him.

  • ASSWIPE , worthless RINO Romney keeps winning in Utah because Utah is nothing but a state of degenerate RINOS themselves !!!! Conservative Republicans seen years ago how much of a sleezy , liberal ass eating , RINO Romney is . But ,,, the nitwit RINOS in Utah eat liberal ass too !!!!!!!!!!

    • Don’t blame the voters, they don’t have much of a say. Democrats don’t even have to campaign anymore or haven’t you noticed Biden won, Fetterman won and Katie Hobbs won…..wink, wink, Get it??

  • They must have promised Romney they’ll have the DOminion machines warmed up for him. Any legal election he won’t have a chance but we don’t have those so no worries.

  • Spoiled brat, na, na, na, na, na! Rinos are not for real. They are cowards. They cannot and do not have what it takes to join the “other” party and they are never again good enough for their original party vots.

  • I’ve studied Romney’s history and have a very thick file showing how he has destroyed thousands of American lives and the fabric of liberty in this great country.
    I know where he was born, where he grew up, what his father did, what his business occustiom was, how he conducted business, how he, as a republican, became governor of a liberal state, what really happened with his involvement in the 2002 Olympics, etc.
    I conclude that he is only interested in his own stardom.

  • ROMNEY , People in the State of UTAH R not gonna vote U in 2024 . Utah’s U feed up with Ur CRAP ! ???? U need to Return to Pennsylvania where U come from. And let them treat U like U treat them when U lived there U LOW LIFE Sum Bug.

  • “I’m convinced that if I run again, I win.”? How did he convince himself of that? The man is delusional, He had his chance and wimped out, Indications are that he is losing support in Utah and will unlikely even be reelected to the Senate. Romney is not even worth consideration.

  • Sen. Mitt Romney is one of several examples DJT has proposed creation of a New Party. Agree with President Trump’s assessment. Party loyalty currently is a myth. Ergo, a new party seeking to 1) Govern states focused on “Peace in the world.” 2)Cultivate character thus helping us regulate our families thus better regulate our State; 3)Investigate, this extends our knowledge (Truth). Folks, Individual (male and female) and their God, Family (one man + one woman united procreating with siblings) and Community – where individuals and families live harmoniously and homogeneously, i.e., People acting rightly are able (thru voting protocols)to reform and perfect society. See, all human relationships involve a set of defined roles and mutual obligations, thus each participant should understand and conform to their proper role. If, “wokeness” and “new speak” and “cultural division” and CRT and BLM and “Gender Identity” continue to proliferate, society looses its: education, religion, governance and Financial organizations…all of which (since 1912) have proliferated from townships to districts to states and beyond. Yes! President Trump has studied and proposed the correct answer…only a New Party will “Right-The-Course.” Pray. Amen. God Bless America. Read A Bible. God’s Letter to WE MORTALS. KJV. Psalm 128. 10 Commandments everywhere. Kitchen Militias to combat marxist ideology and indoctrination. Amen. Pray.

  • Oh my goodness, what an EGO. He is SO into himself. Drinking the mormon “kool-aid” has him believing the people of Utah will go with him, after he “LIED” and screwed them over, he is living in his own world.
