We’ve done our level best to keep you posted with the on-again, off-again hokey pokey going down in Utah concerning whether Sen. Orrin Hatch would ultimately retire and pave the way for Mitt Romney to fill his spot in the U.S. Senate.
First it was basically a done deal.
Then Trump stepped in via his Mitt animous and urged Hatch to stick around.
Then suddenly yesterday Hatch announced his generation-long service in Congress was finally sufficient.
The next question is whether Mitt will actually run.
To wit, those with nothing better to do than comb social media all day noticed Mitt changed his ‘from’ line on Twitter from Massachusetts to Utah.
Um, we’re pretty sure he’s running.
Here’s more from Redstate…
When Sen. Orrin Hatch (R – Utah) announced he was not running for re-election in 2018, effectively announcing his retirement after 40 years in the U.S. Senate, eyes immediately went to former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney.
Romney did not disappoint. Astute political reporters, like Bloomberg’s Sahil Kapur, quickly noticed a subtle indication that proves Romney is absolutely making a run for Hatch’s seat.
See if you can pick out the tell-tale sign.
Per Kapur’s tweet, his first screenshot was taken at 3:12 EST, while the second was taken almost 3 hours later at 5:45 EST, after Orrin Hatch’s retirement announcement.
Suddenly Romney’s location went from Massachusetts to Holladay, Utah.
