Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) has made a lot of enemies in the past few years and his political career may be coming to an end.
Riverton Mayor Trent Staggs is challenging Romney in next years election and has captured the endorsement of the Utah Fraternal Order of Police. Romney has served as Senator since 2018 and has spent a majority of that time attacking Donald Trump and helping Democrats.
Romney is an establishment Republican more concerned with the good old boys club and appearances than actually fighting for America.
Now it seems that the people of Utah are fed up with him and are willing to look elsewhere for representation. Staggs has proven himself to be a fighter already and that contrasts strongly with Romney's establishment politics.
The union issued a statement endorsing Staggs saying, "The Utah Fraternal Order of Police unanimously endorses Trent Staggs for United States Senate. Mayor Staggs has been a longtime supporter of law enforcement and specifically the FOP. He continually shows through words and actions what it means to support law enforcement and he received the unanimous endorsement of our executive board and trustees. He understands the need to protect our safety as well as our working conditions, and we wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy."
The union chose to stand by Staggs because of his staunch support of law enforcement over the past few years.
That stands in stark contrast to Mitt Romney who joined with Black Lives Matter protestors during the summer 2020 riots. Romney told reporters during a protest that, "We need to stand up and say that black lives matter."
Of course, the Black Lives Matter movement was a scam that demonized law enforcement and encouraged rioting and looting. So it is no surprise to see law enforcement in Utah endorsing someone besides Romney.
Brent Jex, president of the Utah Fraternal Order of Police, told Fox News that, "He's had our back, and now we have his."
Staggs responded to the endorsement by saying, "In light of the attacks on law enforcement in recent years, the very first endorsement I sought out was the Fraternal Order of Police. I wanted our local officers to know they'd always have my support, and I'm honored to have theirs. They deserve a senator who is willing to stand beside them rather than march against them."
America First conservatives already succeeded in throwing out Liz Cheney, now it is time to get rid of Mitt Romney and show the establishment that the old days aren't coming back.
Interestingly, Romney has yet to officially make a decision on running for reelection. It's possible that Romney is holding off on a final decision and feeling out how difficult a reelection campaign could be.
Romney knows his record could get him killed in next years election. Staggs attacked Romney's voting record saying, "He votes to impeach President Trump but then has the nerve to confirm a radical justice like Ketanji Brown Jackson and incompetent cabinet members like open border [DHS Secretary Alejandro] Mayorkas."
Speaking of Trump, it seems likely he will throw his powerful endorsement behind Staggs which would go a long way towards cleaning out another establishment Republican more concerned with playing politics then fighting for Americans.
