The saddest moment for my #nevertrump friends will be when Mitt Romney wins a Senate seat and immediately follows McConnell, Ryan, and Rubio into the deep end of the pool of Trump shame

Would Romney really lead the NeverTrump movement? He was willing to be his secretary of state. https://t.co/PsmY6bnup8

This is the wrong question. No US Senator from Utah is going to "lead the NeverTrump movement." But would the signer of Romneycare vote to repeal Obamacare? I don't think so. Of course we prefer the Democrat win IN UTAH but let's have a plan B, please. https://t.co/ZPWvDHCaDe

As a fellow Masshole, I concur with Mr. Pierce:
The surest bet on the board is that Willard will get bored of being Mike Lee's junior after about 6 months, basically quit on the job, and then run for president again.

Wanna-be Breitbrat Jacob Wohl chips in with a cunning plan…
Steve Bannon should run for Orrin Hatch's Senate Seat. That would place him in a good position to run for President in 2024

Securities fraudster asks alcoholic to run for Senate in Mormon state…sounds about right #notright

TBH, since the Fusion GPS / Wolff book news dropped this morning, I suspect Steve Bannon’s got quite enough on his plate without an expensive referendum on how much consistent GOP voters don’t like him. But it’s good to know the hardcore racist/sexist/nativist bigots will be harrassing Romney from the right while the Democrats are pushing our “leftist” (humanist) agenda!
