Mitt Romney Fails To Secure Utah Senate GOP Nomination, Will Face Primary

Mitt Romney will face primary after setback in run for US Senate

"When we were together earlier this week I said we expected to have a primary, we do, and I'm looking forward to it", said Romney.

Romney and Kennedy will now head to a Republican primary on June 26 to try and replace Sen.

Hatch, 83, the longest-serving Republican within the Senate, introduced his retirement plans a number of months in the past, regardless of efforts by President Trump to persuade him to remain in Washington.

Curtis fell just shy of the 60% needed.

"But you know what I'm really exhausted of", Kennedy asked the crowd.

When Khan resumed his attack with fast and furious punches, Lo Greco folded on the ropes and the fight was waved off. I want the fight. "I came here to do a job, a clinical job.

"Thank you for retiring", shouted one woman from the crowd as Hatch, 83, approached the stage.

And during a Republican event at the end of March, Romney said he is more conservative on immigration than the president is - a position which doesn't match his previous statements. "We're all for the same policies, but who can actually get the job done? This is terrific for the people of Utah".

But if he had won enough votes at the state GOP convention on Saturday he would have bypassed a primary altogether. Kennedy captured 51 percent of the vote.

"Romney previously secured his spot on the primary ballot by gathering 28,000 voter signatures but said Saturday that choice was partly to blame for his loss".

Romney's competitors are largely political newcomers aside from state Rep. Mike Kennedy, a Republican from Alpine who has served in the Legislature since 2013.

After four hours of sometimes heated debate, shouting and booing, delegates voted to delay discussion of bylaws that would have set term limits for the GOP's central committee and undercut more conservative members' power.

"Romney, 71, went up against 11 other candidates at the convention, including one dressed as Abraham Lincoln, complete with vest and bow tie".

In launching his U.S. Senate bid, Romney has tried to maintain the concentrate on state points moderately than his historical past of well-documented feuds with President Donald Trump, whom he known as a "con man" and a phony through the 2016 race.

"I do not believe for a moment that President Trump will remove Mueller", Romney said. Trump responded, saying Romney had "choked like a dog" when he ran for president in 2012.

The state party delegates elected by their neighbors are gathering at the convention to choose nominees for races ranging from U.S. Senate to state Legislature.
