“Mitt Romney declined to say Tuesday whether he would run for” Sen. Orrin Hatch’s (R) seat, “telling reporters the ‘time will come’ for him to make some kind of announcement.”

“Romney, who moved to Utah after losing the 2012 presidential election, repeatedly demurred when asked at a gathering of about 1,000 Utah business leaders in Salt Lake City whether he would run for office.”

Romney: "I don't have anything for you on that topic today. Time will come.”

“Romney said he has had ‘a couple of very cordial conversations over the past couple of months’ with President Donald Trump but declined to say whether they discussed his potential candidacy or answer a question about what kind of relationship he'd have with the president if elected.” (AP)
