WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 4

Senator Romney? Twitter Flips Over Possible Mitt Run After Hatch Announcement

Hatch out, Romney in?

2017 saw Utah Senator Orrin Hatch hinting at his own retirement and even a newspaper in his home state, The Salt Lake City Tribune, calling for him to step down. Now, two days into the new year, Hatch has announced that he is officially retiring.

As Hatch plans his exit, this opens the door for Mitt Romney to become a senator this year.

It is worth noting that Mitt Romney and Donald Trump have had a contentious relationship. Romney has criticized many of the president’s actions, including the way he handled the Charlottesville shooting back in August.

Twitter completely blew up as a result of today’s announcement. Will 2018 be the year of a Mitt Romney comeback? Social Media certainly thinks so:
