Former presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is running for a UtahSenate seat, officially launching his political comeback attempt Friday by praising his adopted home state as a model for an acrimonious national government in Washington.
Trumpsaid 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 said last week he generally approved of Trump's agenda, but would not hesitate to call out the president if needed.
