A Utah mayor has dealt a massive blow to Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and announced he is launching a primary challenge for the Republican senator’s seat in the next election.
He is the first candidate to officially challenge Romney.
Riverton Mayor Trent Staggs, a Republican, said: “I love my children, and I’m worried about the country they will inherit if I sit on the sidelines.
“For too long, we’ve allowed government bureaucrats to spend away the next generation’s future, and we need more voices willing to push back.
“Unfortunately, Mitt Romney has let personal beefs get in the way of good governance.
“From not standing with Mike Lee against raising the debt ceiling to voting for the $1.7 trillion omnibus, he has helped drive us deeper in debt.
“He votes to impeach President Trump but then has the nerve to confirm a radical justice like Ketanji Brown Jackson and incompetent cabinet members like open border Mayorkas.
