Former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney may run for the United States Senate in 2018, according to The Daily Caller.
In an interview with Deseret News, Romney discussed the possibility of Senate run, refusing to rule anything out.
“I don’t have any predictions on what I might do. I’m not going to open a door and I’m not going to close a door. All doors are open,” Romney said on the 2018 race.
“I’m not looking forward to anything political at the national level,” he said. “We’ve got some races coming up here in Utah that are going to be interesting. We’ll see what happens on that front.”
The former Republican presidential nominee also had some positive things to say about President Trump, who he was critical of during the 2016 election season, noting that he was off to a “strong start.”
“I expressed honestly what my belief was with regards to temperament and character. Now the time has come for us to recognize we have a new president and we have hopes he will be successful leading our country,” Romney said.
“The campaign is over,” he added. “I think we come together with hope. And there are encouraging signs on a number of fronts and I’m holding on to those at this stage.”
“We’re all watching with interest. He’s obviously gotten off to a very strong start in terms of making a series of executive orders and making the changes that he promised during the campaign,” Romney said.
In addressing his previous consideration for Secretary of State under the Trump administration, Romney said that he has no regrets.
“I had very good meetings with, at that point, President-elect Trump,” Romney said, adding that he was encouraged that Trump “was willing to talk to me, given the fact that I had been so critical.”
Romney concluded by praising Trump’s pick of 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court of the United States, calling him “superb.”
