Mitt Romney Places 2nd During Utah Primary Convention Vote – Forced Runoff in June…

In the final round of voting at the Utah Republican party convention, state Representative Mike Kennedy won 50.88% of the vote, and Mitt Romney placed second with 49.12%.

Giddy up.  This forces Mitt Romney into a republican primary runoff in June for the Utah senate seat being vacated by current Senator Orrin Hatch. [Kennedy Website HERE]

(Via The Hill) […] Saturday’s defeat was a surprising turn for Romney, whose national profile far exceeds Kennedy’s and who could count on a strong donor network and the endorsement of prominent Republicans, including Hatch and President Trump.

When he made his bid official, Romney was considered a virtual lock for the GOP nomination and was not expected to face a serious primary challenger.  […] Romney made headlines earlier on Saturday when he said he was not ready to endorse Trump for reelection in 2020, telling CNN he would “make that decision down the road.” (read more)

  1. Openly carrying a holstered sidearm is legal in Utah. But when Mitt Romney was brought in to “save” the Salt Lake Olympics, he banned law-abiding Utahns from carrying their sidearms at the games, so as not to “offend our European visitors” . . . missing an opportunity to set an example by demonstrating to the world that Americans are proudly armed . . . and peaceful.

    During the presidential debate in October, 2012, Mitt Romney said “We of course don’t want to have automatic weapons, and that’s already illegal in this country to have automatic weapons.” No it’s not. They’re merely subject to a $200 tax . . . though the BATF’s unconstitutional ban on new manufacture or re-importation “for civilian use” does make them absurdly expensive. Was Romney lying . . . or was (and is) he totally uninformed on a controversial national issue of massive importance?

    As governor of Taxachusetts, Romney in 2004 voluntarily signed a PERMANENT ban on certain ugly looking semi-automatic rifles (not assault rifles — the firearms in question have no selector switch to allow full-auto fire), declaring “Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts,” (I presume the MPs at Westover AFB now carry slingshots?) In March, 2016, Romney urged Utah Republican voters to back in their state primary whichever candidate could stop Trump — who he branded “a phony and a fraud.” And today, he won’t even endorse for re-election the most effective, hard-working, conservative Republican sitting president America has had in at least 30 years.

    Let’s be kind, and dignified. Please describe Mitt Romney with whichever of these three terms you judge least offensive: a) lying weasel; b) tone-deaf moron; c) Democrat..

    Thank you Utah. This gives me hope.

    Romney’s good looks almost outshine his incredible shadiness. Thankfully many in Utah aren’t falling for it.

    Double down on the social media effort to expose him Treepers.

      He actually looks better in that angry picture-less slimy. He is good looking but the more you look the slimier he gets. Pretty is as pretty does. On that superficial level he can’t hold a candle to Rick Perry to name just one.

    “If you’re tired of the old, establishment politicians kicking the can down the road and never getting anything done, then retweet this video. Working together, we will change the establishment in Washington. It’s time for fresh ideas and leadership.”

    Let’s hope and pray that Dr. Mike Kennedy sticks to the politics and leaves whatever personal foibles that Mr. Romney has as separate issues from his faith. I was infuriated when Mr. Trump criticized Mr. Romney as not living up to the requirements of his denomination. Let his fellow Mormons make up their own minds privately to themselves about whether he lives up to the their standards. We are all sinners saved by grace and subject to messing up while still living in these bodies of flesh.

      Overall, true.

      However, when Mittens brings up his religion in the conversation, then it’s fair to note how he lives up to this denomination.

      Just like when Pelosi brings up how she’s a Catholic.. then she must be reminded that she’s pro-abortion.

      I have no clue what church Maxine belongs to. The “Church of the Impeachment”?

    Dr. Mike Kennedy comes from the state of Utah where he actually served in the state legislature. Ole Mitt is considered an outsider to the state. This would be absolutely amazing 😉 if Kennedy wins on June 26th. What an embarrassment that would be to the Never Trump MORONS.

    From the article linked above:

    After the vote, the establishment favorite didn’t want to appear disappointed.

    “I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told Salt Lake City’s FOX 13. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

    Mr. Kennedy was clearly elated with the results.

    “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,” he told FOX 13.

    Delegates from the heavily Mormon state rejected the former Massachusetts governor for several reasons.

    Many Utah Republicans, though being late to warm up to President Donald Trump during the 2016 Republican nomination, have not yet forgiven Mr. Romney for his attempt to sabotage his White House chances. In fact, he remained defiant up until the vote, despite having the support of President Trump.

    I do hope PDJT throws his support to Kennedy. Mittens is a wolf in sheeps clothing, he can’t trusted and must be defeated.

    Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton (and John McCain) need to get a grip. They put themselves out to the American electorate and the American electorate rejected them as presidential material. That Hillary would go on a whining tour and cry and gripe and moan and groan about all the reasons she lost except that the voters didn’t want her is embarrassing. I’d feel sorry for her if she weren’t such a jerk. For Mitt Romney to patronize and disparage the voters of Utah by running for the Senate in a state where he might own a home but which he certainly didn’t think enough of to become governor (that would be MA) puts him in the same category as Hillary was when she moved to NY in order to be their senator. The New Yorkers were too stupid to see they were being used and patronized; I hope the Utahans are smarter (they seem to be). As for John McCain, he served his country and is suffering from a mortal illness, so speaking ill of him at this time would be as crass as he was to Donald Trump. Senator McCain ran for the presidency and lost. I frankly don’t think a politician ought to have his/her cake and eat it, too. If s/he is running for the presidency or vice presidency, then s/he ought to give up his/her Senate seat. Do you hear that Barack Obama? Tim Kaine? Senator McCain ran in 2016 on a platform of repealing and replacing ObamaCare, then cast the deciding vote to keep ObamaCare in place. These three are not the kind of men/women this country needs in its time(s) of crises and troubles.

      Trump is right. John McCain is no hero!
      by Thomas Madison July 19, 2015

      “Considering John McCain’s vulnerability regarding his past, it is probably in his best interest to shut up, and certainly he would be wise to avoid insulting fellow Republicans, especially Donald Trump. Let’s review:

      1. John McCain was a below average student, getting into the Naval Academy due to his father’s and grandfather’s influence and naval careers. Both were admirals. McCain was a boozing, smoking, womanizing party animal, graduating fifth from the bottom of his class at Annapolis.

      2. John McCain’s arms were broken not from being tortured by the North Vietnamese, but when he improperly ejected from his plane over North Vietnam. According to his fellow prisoners he was never tortured by the North Vietnamese.

      3. John McCain’s nickname amongst his North Vietnamese captors was Songbird, as he was eager to tell them anything they wanted to hear to avoid torture. It is claimed that he made 32 propaganda videos for the North Vietnamese in which he blamed the United States for targeting schools, temples, orphanages, and hospitals. McCain has admitted to making one propaganda video. This puts him in the Jane Fonda class.”

    I can’t believe I was once an ardent supporter of this creep. If he becomes a Senator, he will be in the mold of McCain or Graham and will be nothing but a thorn in the side of President Trump. I hope the people of the great and beautiful state of Utah will deny him that opportunity. He is treacherous and should never again be allowed to be in any position of power. He has lost every election he ever engaged in but for the governorship of MA. I hope he keeps that losing record intact.
