Letter to the Editor

Sen. Orrin Hatch may have served Utah well at one point, but those times are long past. He has been outspoken in his support of President Donald Trump, recently calling him one of the best presidents he ever served under. Hatch is woefully out of touch with Utah voters, the majority of whom voted against Trump last year. Mitt Romney would make a fantastic senator and be a far more representative voice for Utah.

In the upcoming race, one thing is crystal clear: A vote for Hatch is a vote for Trump, and a vote for Romney is a vote for the reason and compassion Trump so tragically lacks. Let’s drain the swamp that is Trumpland and support Mitt Romney for U.S. Senate.
