Letter: Mitt Romney needs to step up to lead the Republicans

(Francisco Kjolseth | Tribune file photo) Sen. Mitt Romney meets state lawmakers at the Utah Capitol as he speaks with members of the Republican House Caucus during a series of meetings on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019.

Sen. Mitt Romney, in 2016 you wrote an eloquent epistle denouncing Donald Trump. I was heartened. Then came the Deer Valley powwow with all the top Republicans where it was apparently decided that the smart money supported Trump.

You could still turn around. You could still fill the late Sen. John McCain’s shoes as the moral leader of the Republican Senate by standing against Trump.

As I understand your church to say, perhaps you could save the Constitution from an uncertain fate. It may well be hanging by a thread.
