There is nothing that would make my heart sing more than to see traitor and liberal in “Republican clothing” Mitt Romney get sent packing in Utah…and it looks like it could actually happen.
The infamous globalist and Trump-hater Romney has aligned himself with the Dems for years now, and he’s getting bolder and braver as the days go by…but his time may be up, thanks to former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who now says he is open to challenging Romney for his Senate seat in his home state.
And the best news of all, Chaffetz announced the news with a big ol’ smile on his face, so you know it’s gonna happen!
Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz says he is open to running against Sen. Mitt Romney in Utah.
With a smile on his face, the retired politician told Fox News host Sean Hannity, “Yea, I would,” when asked Monday evening about a primary challenge against Romney just days after the GOP senator voted a second time to convict former President Donald Trump on an article of impeachment.
Chaffetz represented Utah’s 3rd Congressional District from 2009 to 2017 and served as chairman of the House Oversight Committee for the final couple of years. After retiring, Chaffetz joined Fox News as a contributor.
During the panel, in which he appeared with Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, Chaffetz insisted he is “dedicated” to Fox News. But he also stressed that he’s “thought about” running for office.
The topic came up as the panel was discussing House Republican leaders sending House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a letter demanding that she turn over the security decisions her office made leading up to and during the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Pelosi, a California Democrat, renewed her push for a “9/11-type commission” to investigate the Capitol siege following Trump being acquitted on Saturday.
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.

The reaction to the news was jubilant, to say the least:
“Delecto gots to go.”
“A Middle Schooler will Crush Romney. Romney is the only person in Utah that is happy with his tenure. Not to mention the Middle Schooler will have a better grasp of Civics than Romney.”
“Pierre Delecto would have to run as a Democrat at this point. No way a Republican would vote for him.”
“Anyone would be a successful challenger.”
“Good because I’m not very fond of the guy. He is too annoying and irritating. No accomplishments … all talk , no action. His focus is defaming and destroying Trump. Is that what he is hired to do ? What’s his purpose and reason to be present there ? For what ? He pisses me off!”
“Jason would be a great representative much better than Mitt Romnney”
“Fabulous. He would destroy Romney easily.”
This is great news.
Some people are angry and say. “well, Chaffetz isn’t a MAGA candidate.”
No, he’s not. But as someone who lived in Utah for many years, I can tell you that a big “MAGA” candidate won’t win there.
It’s a very “establishment” type of state, so the Utah Senate candidates will never be hardcore MAGA, but we can do a helluva lot better than Mitt Romney, and we can work with Jason Chaffetz.
