I don’t see how he can pick a sitting US Senator. Trump will need all the votes he can get get and I have to assume a Senator can’t vote to confirm himself/herself.

Romney always seizes defeat from the jaws of victory. Except when running Bain Capital and dancing on the graves of bankrupt companies.
I don’t see anyway Romney wouldn’t vote on a qualified candidate. There is a major difference between a Republican anti-Trumper and selecting a constitutionalist judge for SC.

What republican senators say now is irrelevant. When they are asked to vote on a constituionalist justice, they will be forced to vote for her or else see themselves removed from the senate. Simple as that.
Romney wins because he wears the magic underpants in the land of magic underpants. It’s more important than being Republican. And his underpants stop bullets so don’t think about trying to take him out

Speaking of the LDS, the DNC is making a hard push at the LDS In Arizona and Utah. A lot of Mormons held their nose and voted for Trump in 2016, which I completely understand, but have seen enough of him in four years that they are listening and looking at the whole picture.

That isn't even his issue. For the 4Chan crowd "trolling the left" is the most important thing right now. No one who truly supports a pro life agenda uses terms like baby slaughter.
Saying pro life isnt enough. Republicans are called facist, racist, sexist, xenophobic, transphobic, so on and so forth. If you cant handle it being called what it actually is, which is the slaughter of the unborn, then frankly too bad.

Cool, but I don't think you are a republican. Honestly after 4 years of Trump's reckless spending and expansion of the government I'm not sure if anyone can call themselves an ideological republican right now.

No doubt spending during his term has been a major disappointment.

Even this year, it have been incredibly eye opening to me the amount of government waste with the CARES Act.
The guy has gold plated toilets....not exactly stunning to find out he isnt frugal.

Romney is a perfect Ned Stark. He‘ll stand on principle and act all high and mighty and end up with his head cut off. (Figuratively)
