Appearing on Fox News with Sean Hannity, former Utah lawmaker Jason Chaffetz teased the possibility of a run against Mitt Romney for his Utah Senate seat.
Smiling, Chaffetz told Sean Hannity, “Yea, I would,” when asked about the possibility of challenging Romney.
Per WashingtonExaminer “Romney, who is up for reelection in 2024, is facing backlash at home for joining six other Republicans to vote in favor of convicting Trump on a charge of incitement of insurrection in connection to the U.S. Capitol siege. Some Republicans are even signing a petition to censure him.”
Romney said in a statement after he voted to convict Trump for a second time “after careful consideration of the respective counsels’ arguments, I have concluded that President Trump is guilty of the charge made by the House of Representatives.”
“President Trump attempted to corrupt the election by pressuring the Secretary of State of Georgia to falsify the election results in his state,” he continued “President Trump incited the insurrection against Congress by using the power of his office to summon his supporters to Washington on January 6th and urging them to march on the Capitol during the counting of electoral votes. He did this despite the obvious and well known threats of violence that day. President Trump also violated his oath of office by failing to protect the Capitol, the Vice President, and others in the Capitol. Each and every one of these conclusions compels me to support conviction.”
