WASHINGTON Senator Mitch McConnell said in an interview on Friday afternoon that President Trump should rally behind the Senate candidacy of Mitt Romney despite his blistering criticism in 2016, arguing that Mr. Romneys potent bid was an illustration of the Republican Partys improving fortunes entering a challenging midterm campaign.
I cant imagine that hes not, Mr. McConnell said when asked whether Mr. Trump was comfortable with Mr. Romney, who on Friday made official his long-expected candidacy for a Senate seat from Utah. We dont want to lose the seat, and this looks like a pretty formidable candidate.
Mr. McConnell, the majority leader, said that Mr. Romney would enter the Senate with a stature similar to what Hillary Clinton brought as a junior senator. The best way to think about that, and I told him this a couple of months ago, I said: Youll be a freshman like Hillary Clinton was, Mr. McConnell recalled. He will come in here with a level of national identity and respect that will make him effective from Day 1.

He will come in here with a level of national identity and respect that will make him effective from Day 1.’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’for the democrats.
Can we just haul out this deep-state trash, both of them?
When Bannon left the stage nationalism died. And with it, the Republic.
Hey Turtle - you didnt care abut the Alabama seat so I think your opinion means nuts about what you care about for the Utah seat.
In fact, given your piss-poor performance as Senate leader (so called) I dont value your opinion at all!
Romney needs to be defeated...period.
He is nothing but a democRAT.
Mitchs words were so far over the top that society should shun him.
McConnell should get behind confirming Trump’s judicial nominees.
Get behind him...and push him off a cliff so high that even his magic underwear can’t save him.
I can’t tell yo how sick this makes me feel. Disgusting. For all of his flaws I want Bannon back. The only Swamp creature hunter we had, warts and all.
Trump endorse Romney? Says McConnell. These are both now repeat losers. No way is first response. Instead, let McConnell resign.
Will no one stand up for the base?
Listening to what McConnell says is like watching your toilet clog.
I thought I disliked Mitch McConnell before, but I was just warming up.
The only thing this treasonous, treacherous, pathological lying Deep Stater Socialist scumbag deserves is to be run out of the country on a rail.
Why, Sen. McConnell?
The GOPe has done little, if anything at all, to support the President. Not only has he had to fight the Dems and the media, he has had to withstand his own party.
Perhaps President Trump is more forgiving than I am.
Turtle Face, I hope not. Your endorsement says it all.
Does Mitch give Mitt the reach around when he gets behind him?
Once again Mitch, ya got it wrong.
Mittens has got to get behind Trump
