Former presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is running for a Utah Senate seat, officially launching his political comeback attempt Friday by praising his adopted home state as a model for an acrimonious national government in Washington.

Trump said Romney would make "a great senator" and "worthy successor" to retiring Sen. Later Trump adviser Roger Stone claimed the president-elect only interviewed Romney "in order to torture him".

Romney responded later on Monday night, tweeting: "Thank you Mr. President for the support". Romney acknowledged that to the AP, saying, "I can fight for the people of Utah and do more for Utah than the average junior senator might be able to accomplish". "I'm not always with the president on what he might say or do, and if that happens I'll call'em like I see'em, the way I have in the past". Romney later said that he would have rejected Donald Trump's 2012 endorsement if he said similar things in public.

Romney, the former governor of MA and the 2012 Republican nominee for president, formally announced last Friday that he would seek the seat that will be vacated by Sen.

Romney said last week he generally approved of Trump's agenda, but would not hesitate to call out the president if needed.

The two men put aside their differences enough after Trump's election victory when Romney was considered to be his secretary of state nominee, although Trump ultimately tapped Rex Tillerson for the job.

He remained critical of Trump, voicing his dissent with the president after his response to the Charlottesville protests and criticizing a comment he made about immigration from "shithole countries".

Amid intense conservative opposition to the national law, however, Romney distanced himself during his 2012 campaign from his MA accomplishments, arguing that he had pursued a state solution that wasn't appropriate at the federal level.
