Kellyanne Conway said Wednesday that President Trump and Mitt Romney have a good relationship, but she declined to say whether the president would support the former MA governor and GOP presidential nominee in a possible Senate run in Utah.
Kellyanne Conway said on CNN Wednesday that the two had a "wonderful conversation". Orrin Hatch - in office more than 40 years - to decide on retirement before jumping into the 2018 Utah senate race.
Regardless of whether Hatch or Romney run, now Bannon's endorsement will be toxic to any candidate in Utah. And while Hatch has acquiesced to the grotesque Trump status quo, Romney is one of the few marquee Republicans who's had the courage to call Trump out.
Bannon has vowed to wage war against GOP establishment figures he accuses of setting out to derail Trump's populist agenda-and backed Moore against establishment candidate Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican primaries in September.
In his speech, Bannon also attacked other GOP figures who have been critical of Moore, including Arizona Senator Jeff Flake and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. He noted that Moore graduated from the U.S. Military Academy, while Romney received a draft deferment for his missionary work in France.
The report also stated two senior administration officials who said Trump's favor for Hatch is not only for blocking Romney, but also because Hatch defended the president during a turbulent time when an "Access Hollywood" video tape leaked, which showed the POTUS bragging about sexually assaulting women. "Whether you agree or disagree with him on any matter of public policy, you can't credibly call into question his patriotism or moral character - especially on the basis of his religious beliefs or his outstanding service as a missionary". "Do not talk about honor and integrity". He's cuffed the Republican Party to Roy Moore, an alleged pedophile. At least Romney has not feuded with Gold Star families, which is more than can be said for our President.

"You ran for commander in chief and had five sons - not one day of service in Afghanistan or Iraq".
None of Trump's four adult children have served in the military. He mocked the man he replaced in the Senate (as Wilson notes) for having served three terms, then went on to serve seven.
The president replied "yes" when asked Monday if he was encouraging the Utah Republican to run for re-election during a visit to a Salt Lake City food bank.
Hatch, who is Mormon, denounced attacks on "our own Christian LDS faith and the selfless service of missionary work".
"Utahns rejects the ugly politics and tactics" of Bannon, he added.
"I didn't see Gov. Romney file papers for Orrin Hatch's seat", Conway said.
