Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who is currently up for reelection in 2024 said in a recent interview that “I’m convinced that if I run, I win.” In a recent interview with Politico Romney did not disclose whether he would try for a second term as senator however he said that he is confident that he would win if he did decide to run again.

He further noted that he has previously “faced long odds” including when he managed to win the 2012 nomination. He added that he managed to become a Republican governor while in Massachusetts, one of the most liberal states in the country, and that he knows that should he decide to run that he will win.

Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, and 2012 GOP presidential nominee has made a name for himself as one of former President Trump’s most vocal critics. In both of Trump’s impeachment trials, Romney had voted for the conviction of the former President. In the first impeachment trial, he was the only GOP senator to have done so, and in the second one, he was one of seven GOP members to have voted for Trump to be impeached. Trump was acquitted in both impeachment trials.

The Utah senator won the primary in 2018 against Republican Mike Kennedy by over 40 points and he easily managed to win the election in November. At the same time in the 2022 midterm elections, it became clear that many voters were moving away from Trump’s nominees and especially those who had previously rejected the results of the elections. Still, Trump voters remain an important part of the GOP base.

Politico noted that many GOP Senate leadership members have also indicated that they would support Romney if he were to make another senatorial bid.
