Mitt Romney faces Senate major in Utah after state GOP conference setback

But even the former Governor of MA and Presidential Candidate could not get 60% of the vote at the party convention this weekend, in the seriously divided GOP. When Romney received Hatch's blessing to enter the contest, and quickly secured an endorsement from President Trump, he had every reason to think that he'd sail to victory.

Apparently, Mitt Romney is no shoo-in to win his bid for a U.S. Senate seat from Utah.

Romney will head into the June primary with substantially more money than his competitor - at the end of March he had $1.1 million compared to Kennedy's $257,000.

Throughout the protests, journalists have reportedly faced attacks, been temporarily detained and had their equipment stolen. Nicabus, an global bus line with links to Costa Rica and Honduras, said it had suspended services due to the violence.

Former Massachusetts Governor and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is interviewed at the Silicon Slopes Tech Conference on January 19, 2018 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Majority have been political newcomers who questioned Romney's criticism of President Donald Trump and the depth of his ties to Utah. Instead, he was edged out by state lawmaker Mike Kennedy, who got 51 percent of the vote to Romney's 49 percent.

Gathering signatures is unpopular among many conservative delegates in the state who say it dilutes their ability to choose a candidate. In 2012, for example, Hatch similarly failed to clinch the nomination outright but went on to win his primary by 30 percentage points.

The primary election will June 26, with ballots mailed to voters three weeks before election day.

Romney asked for delegates' votes after spending two months on the campaign trail visiting dairy farms, taking selfies with college students and making stump speeches in small towns.

Kennedy also seemed pleased with the results, telling the station: 'I'm a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I'd like to use to serve the people of Utah'. "I'm not Goliath. Washington, D.C., is Goliath". Romney moved to Utah in 2012 after losing the presidential election to Barack Obama. "Some candidates questioned Romney's past criticism of President Donald Trump".

Despite once tweeting that Romney "choked like a dog" during his own White House run, Trump eventually backed Romney posting that he would make a good senator.
