Mitt Romney launches Senate campaign in Utah
Amid months of speculation, Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has announced he will run for the U.S. Senate seat representing the state of Utah.
He continued, "I've no doubt that Mitt Romney satisfies all qualifications to run for Senate, and as Chairman of the Utah Republican Party, I will treat all candidates equally to ensure their path to the Party nomination is honest and fair".
While his initial roll-out will be low key, Romney is expected to address Republican grassroots supporters Friday at the Utah County Republican Party Lincoln Day dinner. "He comes with immediate gravitas, credibility and stature, and it will be a whole new power structure, I think, in the Senate, as people gravitate to him", Flake said of Romney.
As he did in two presidential campaigns, Mr Romney's announcement highlights his stewardship of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

James Ennis , who was also acquired by the Pistons, will not be available after getting stuck in bad weather today. Reed is now serving a six-game suspension without pay for a domestic violence incident that involved his wife.
In a two-minute video, he lauds the state for exporting more than it imports and balancing its budget, values and lessons he said belong in Washington. World leaders take McCain far more seriously than any other senator traveling overseas.
In the ad, Meyers says Romney "threw away" an election in 2012, leading to four more years of President Barack Obama and now thinks the U.S. Senate is his "consolation prize".
In addition to his instant name recognition, Romney has a deep network of fundraisers and his own personal wealth to help carry him. "Mitt Romney desperately wants to separate himself from the extremism of the current administration", said Democratic National Committee spokesman Vedant Patel in a statement, but "the basis policies of Trump'sGOP. were his before they were Donald Trump's". He also called for Trump to apologise to the nation in August for his rhetoric following a violent white supremacists' march in Charlottesville, Virginia.
In 2016, Romney was one of the few Republicans to publicly criticize Trump, then a candidate for president. As a presidential candidate in 2012, he pledged to repeal Obamacare and pushed for marketplaces created by states.
Romney may also be confronted by the pro-Trump, anti-establishment forces in the Republican Party that influenced decisions by Republican Party Senators Bob Corker of Tennessee and Jeff Flake of Arizona to retire after this year, although a Corker spokesman said he may reconsider.
Mr Romney, 70, will be the heavy favourite for the Senate seat being opened by senator Orrin Hatch's retirement.
When Hatch won re-election in 2012, he pledged that his seventh term would be his last.
High UK inflation piles on pressure to hike rates
At the pumps, petrol prices rose by 1.1p per litre on the month to 121p per litre, while diesel rose 1p to 124.5p per litre. While statistically correct, any "feel-good" factor will have been lost on most vehicle and van owners.
Polls have consistently shown Romney with a huge lead in a prospective Senate primary and general election.
