    No, even though the votes from last week arenít even all counted yet, it is, of course, time to move on to the next election. And while the discussion so far has focused on which Democrats are running and who among them is best positioned to defeat President Trump, Iíve got the perfect candidate to dethrone the Donald. Itís Mitt Romney. Or maybe Jeff Flake. Ben Sasse? Sure, whatever. Any of them will do. Because Iím not suggesting that any of these vocal Trump critics from within the presidentís own party ó including Massachusettsí re-gift to Utah ó run as...

    Mitt Romney is finally heading to Washington. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee won a seat in the Senate for his adopted home state of Utah in Tuesday's election. "I will be only one of a hundred United States senators, but I believe that one person doing the right thing at the right time can have a lasting impact," Romney said on Election Night. For Romney, it was the right time. In 2012, he waged a hard-fought presidential campaign, complete with an endorsement from then-businessman Donald Trump. After losing to President Barack Obama, Romney stepped out of the public eye. Four...

    The jury is out on whether Mitt Romney, the nearly certain winner in the Senate race in Utah, will be a powerful voice challenging President Trump or whether he will, as so many other Republicans have, crumble. However, his essay this week in defense of a free press was as excellent start. . . Romney should be credited with responsibly defending the First Amendment. It is good practice for the oath heíll take to uphold the Constitution (including all the amendments) before entering the Senate. Republicans who think the media really is the enemy of the people and/or support Trumpís...

    Standing in his stocking feet, Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney spoke and answered questions at the Utah Islamic Center on Friday before attending a worship service with about 200 Muslims. Romney fielded questions on guns, immigration and health care, but interestingly no one asked him about President Donald Trump's order to restrict travel from several majority Muslims countries, which the president referred to as a "Muslim ban" during the 2016 election

Romney was asked following a rally in support of Arizona Senate candidate Martha McSally (R) about where he stands with Trump given his fierce criticism of the president during the 2016 campaign. "You led the never Trump movement. I mean, what happened with that?" a reporter asked, in a video posted online. "I donít think that was the case," Romney responded. "President Trump was not...

    Heís asked in the clip below about having led the Never Trump movement, which he denies. And I suppose thatís fair enough: There was no formal Never Trump ďleader.Ē But Romney, as the reigning GOP nominee and the person who delivered the most scathing anti-Trump speech by a Republican during the 2016 cycle, was the closest thing to one. In fact, I take his denial to be aimed not so much at the claim that he led Never Trumpers as at the idea that he even was a Never Trumper.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are praising McCain and offering prayers for his family, as is Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee....
