'Nonsense' expected from Romney as senator

Mitt RomneyA Massachusetts-based pro-family activist says Mitt Romney would clearly be a thorn in the president's side if he becomes Utah's next senator.

Romney made it official on Friday; he is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Orrin Hatch (R), who has announced his retirement. Romney, Massachusetts' former governor, is expected to sail smoothly into the Senate from the Mormon-dominated state, and Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, says conservatives in Utah are not happy.

"He's a RHINO, and he sort of just drifted into Utah," Camenker notes. "He was governor of Massachusetts. His home state is really Michigan. He just happened to come and move to Utah so he could, in our opinion, run for Senate at some point, as he sort of came into Massachusetts to run for governor."

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)And the pro-family activist believes Romney would be far cry from Hatch, who has been a staunch supporter of President Trump.

"He will unquestionably be an adversary of President Trump and the kind of things he wants to do," Camenker asserts. "I think that's going to be a problem. I think in that case you might as well have a Democrat – well, not quite, but almost."

He adds that Romney has a miserable record on social issues. 

"Romney called for the Boy Scouts to accept homosexuals before Obama did," Camenker recalls. "So we know pretty much where he's going to go on those issues. He'll support gays in the military and all that other nonsense, and so it's not looking good."
