Orrin Hatch in Wanship: ‘Quite sure’ Romney will run in 2012
November 17, 2010
Sen. Orrin Hatch said on Friday he anticipates Mitt Romney will seek the Republican nomination for the White House in 2012, saying in an interview Romney "would be my preference."
Hatch said in an interview with The Park Record Romney has not informed him of his political plans in 2012. But Romney, who helmed the 2002 Winter Olympics and owned a mansion in Park City until recently, has the background in economics that a president should possess, Hatch said.
"I’m quite sure he’s going to run," the senator said.
Hatch mentioned his support of Romney while addressing a town hall crowd in Wanship on Friday, but it was a brief interlude during the remarks.
