Now that it is pretty much a foregone conclusion Mitt Romney will win Orrin Hatch’s Senate seat for life, it is a sad commentary it only took him four years’ residence in Utah to manage a move right back to his home turf of the eastern United States. I suppose, like Hatch, he will make an occasional foray beck to Utah.

It is a shame that Romney, who is basically a decent guy and one who recently called the president a phony and a fraud, found the lure of politics so great he compromised his ideals and joined up with the Trump team.

We can only hope some the qualities that led Romney to do such a great job with the Olympics remain.
