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 years later, with President Trump heading for the Republican nomination, he came back swinging, calling Mr. Trump a "phony," and "a fraud."
"Think of Donald Trump's personal qualities, the bullying, the greed, the showing off, the misogyny, the absurd third grade theatrics," he said at the time.

He’ll try to be President again.
Had a friend of mine observed in 2012: “the only candidate WORSE than Obama is Romney... a total loser.”
With no desire to fight anyone but his own party.
So, in reality, the dimbulbcrats have another senator then?
Mr Mushmind Wiltwaste is the very definition of RINO.
McCain’s replacement is in route.
Romney immediately defended Mueller.
We really dodged a bullet in 2012.
And not a single f___ is given.
MILF/Ryan 2012...the worst vote I ever cast. (At least Gov. Palin was on the 2008 ticket.)
I just hope Romney will get over his spitefulness at losing to Obama while Trump won of Hillary and not be a pouting little schoolboy over it.
Help President Trump MAGA. The country needs you to do that.
McCain, er, I mean, Romney should get over it. Those bright lights at the CNN panel discussions may reveal the ego and careerism that he may want to hide. That and the dog biscuits CNN will instinctively offer him between show segments for being a good lapdog. At least he’s a Republican.
Ugh. He’s already out there trumpeting the Mueller probe.
A permanent thorn in Trump’s side.
I am a Masshole and I abhor this S.O.B. :(
In their debate, Ryan made Joe Biden look like a member of MENSA.
The new court jester - Bishop Jackanapes.
The New McCain
The Cheap Labor Express still expects to get that amnesty.
Unfortunately, most of us here held our noses and voted for him. We had little choice.
(We need to find a way to demand better choices.)
darn! Utah is a beautiful state with so many good decent people, and now they’re represented by Mitt!?
.....and in the meantime he will be the new McCain.
