Steve Bannon mulls Orrin Hatch endorsement to block Mitt Romney

December 4, 2017

1060x600-2c72ce892a1ca61f840ca3a726d92840Steve Bannon is mulling an endorsement of Sen. Orrin Hatch in his bid to keep Mitt Romney out of the Senate, a source close to President Trump’s former chief strategist confirmed on Sunday.

Bannon is targeting Republican incumbents in 2018 primaries to undermine support for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. Hatch, a McConnell loyalist and a fixture of Washington and the Republican establishment for more than 40 years, is not Bannon’s ideal choice.

But short on insurgent Republicans willing to challenge Hatch, Bannon is eying the seven-term senator as a better option than Romney. Encouraged by Hatch, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee — a sharp, regular critic of Trump — is planning to run for Senate if the incumbent retires.

“If Steve had a choice between Orrin Hatch and Mitt Romney, he would pick Hatch 10 times out of 10,” the source close to Bannon told the Washington Examiner.

    Another example of how Term Limits could benefit the American people. You got folks, like Hatch, Conyers, and so many others who believe they “own” the seat for life. Funny how a Military person, especially Enlisted members, cannot stay beyond 30 years yet the folks who make the rules can stay for life. Same with folks in the private sector, reaching mandatory retirement age while being called “sonny” by these fossils in Congress. Once you get folks like Robert Byrd (57 years in office), Ted Kennedy (47 years) or Strom Thurmond (48 years) who only leave because they either died or were dying you have a “Ruling Class” which was why we left Britain in the first place. Dingell from MI had been there 59 years. He would have had to retire form the Military TWICE by now. (Not for nothing, but if you look at the list of the longest serving members of congress, 16 of the top 20, including the entire “Top Ten”, are Democrats, and Thurmond started as a Democrat before becoming a Republican)
