BREAKING: Romney’s In for UT-Sen.

Mitt Romney, a former Republican nominee for president and governor of Massachusetts, jumped into the race for U.S. Senate in Utah on Friday, with a two-minute video shared on social media.

The video highlights Romney’s service to Salt Lake City ahead of its successful 2002 Winter Olympics.

Romney also contrasts Utah with Washington, D.C. on balanced budgets, trade, and immigration. The last contrast is of particular interest, because it seems to be an implicit rebuke of President Trump: “Utah welcomes immigrants from around the world. Washington sends immigrants a message of exclusion.”

Romney was widely expected to jump in the race to succeed retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and he enters the race a heavy favorite to win.
