Mitt Romney admitted something that left everyone scratching their heads
Mitt Romney is trying his best to lose Utah’s Senate race.
He’s already made a laundry list of unforced errors.
But his latest gaffe could cost him everything.
Utah hasn’t elected a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since the 1970s, so the winner of the June 26 GOP primary should take the seat in the general.
Romney has taken a “wait and see” approach to endorsing President Trump for 2020.
But he just revealed that he did not vote for Trump in 2016.
Fox News reports:
Mitt Romney on Wednesday revealed who he voted for in the 2016 presidential election and it wasn’t an official candidate for office.
Romney told the Deseret News that he “wrote in the name of a person who I admire deeply, who I think would be an excellent president” — his wife, Ann Romney.
The 2012 GOP presidential nominee said he realized his vote “wasn’t going to go anywhere, but nonetheless felt that I was putting in a very solid name.”
Romney, a vocal critic of President Trump currently running for a U.S. Senate seat in Utah, hadn’t publicly said who he voted for, but in March 2016 encouraged Americans to vote for Sen. Ted Cruz.
Earlier that month, Romney called then-candidate Trump a “phony” and a “fraud” who was playing Americans for “suckers.”
It’s not surprising that the notorious Never-Trumper did not cast his ballot for Donald Trump.
But admitting this fact only serves to hurt his chances to win over Trump supporters who could hold their nose and vote for him.
Political pundits still believe Mitt Romney is the frontrunner to win the GOP nomination despite coming in second place at the convention to State Rep. Mike Kennedy.
