    Romney lives in Utah.

    Romney loves Utah.

    Romney has tried to live a virtuous life.

    Romney's entire life has prepared him to represent Utah values of:

    Hard work
    Family
    Accomplishment
    Community
    Sacrifice
    Freedom
    Constitution
    Education

    Romney is about as Utah as it gets.

    Disappointing to see Ryan's people being picked up. Romeny is not a Utahn nor from Utah. He does not have our values.

    Only time will tell if our new senator is surrounding himself with principled supporters and defenders of the Constitution, or denizens of the swamp opposed to draining it.

    Good luck, to everyone moving to work in DC. It is good to work there, but try hard not to become "of there" instead of "from Utah."

    Great choices! I am especially aware of Matt Waldrip. I have interacted with him during my career as a physician-scientist. He is talented, honest, thoughtful, open-minded and extremely capable.

    Very excited to see what Romney does as a Senator. Will he bring stability to the office, or will he be like the now senior Senator and be all over the place with regards to policy. I am hoping Mitt brings some maturity to the role.
