Mitt Romney Won’t Reveal Who He Voted For In the Utah Primary
Mitt Romney is refusing to disclose which Republican candidate he voted for in the Utah Presidential Primary, having all but certainly voted for long-shot liberal primary challenger Bill Weld.
Romney stated that he voted for a “Republican” in the state’s Republican primary on Tuesday. He did not say who it was, telling CNN that he was “not saying.”
Romney’s coy dismissal of the question all but guarantees he voted for a Republican other than Trump. He’s previously spoken favorably of Bill Weld, a liberal globalist former Governor of Massachusetts like himself. Weld led an effort to institute wide-ranging gun bans as Governor. He ran as Gary Johnson’s running mate on the 2016 Libertarian Party ticket, only to encourage his supporters to vote for Hillary Clinton days before the election.
The intensely anti-Trump failed Presidential candidate may have relied upon his own instincts of political self-preservation in declining to tell CNN who he voted for. Romney is one of the most unpopular Republican senators in the country in his own state, with high disapproval ratings that are likely to have surged even higher in light of his vote to convict Donald Trump in a pointless Democratic impeachment gambit.
Romney has also admitted that his primary vote is essentially a futile effort, admitting that Trump is likely to be re-elected in a speech to a globalist political conference in Germany.
Romney probably wouldn’t run the risk of openly endorsing a fringe liberal Republican primary challenger to the President- especially in light of a recent effort by Utah Republicans to censor the old-school establishment Republican- but he remains thoroughly loyal to his anti-Trump colors. Simply can’t let go of the petty feud he’s waged against the President for years.
