Skip to comments.Mitt Romney is under attack in Utah for ‘liberal Massachusetts values’
Posted on 03/08/2018 2:57:41 PM PST by TBP
Mitt Romney is being hit with the first attack ad of the Utah Senate race Thursday, a slickly produced video that portrays him as a darling of the D.C. establishment and gives him the nickname flip-flopper Mitt.
The ad from Republican candidate Larry Meyers slams Mr. Romney, the presumptive front-runner in the GOP race, with accusations of not being conservative enough for Utah voters.
The D.C. establishment loves Mitt Romney. But Utah voters have a better choice. Larry Meyers, says the announcer.
It then rips open an old wound for Mr. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and a former Massachusetts governor.
In 2012, President Barack Obama also accused Mr. Romney of being a flip-flopper and having no core.
Flip-flopper Mitt has been all over the map. On issues like the Second Amendment. On issues like life. And the last time Mitt Romney was elected, he stuck the country with the blueprint for Obamacare, says the ad, the voice-over announcers words repeated in text across the screen.
These lines of attack are expected to dominate the race, as it follows a familiar patter of recent GOP primaries becoming conservative versus establishment showdowns.

Did he move there with his belongings in a carpet bag?
As he should be...RINO.
Used BMW salesman...
Don’t tell me the mormons don’t like the cut of Romney’s magic underwear...What in the hell is the world coming to.
Good, Utah ought to send this jerk back to the east coast.
He has a lot of nerve using people.
Mitt is too liberal for UT and he’s a carpet-bagger.
He is ‘a fraud, a fake, a phony’...
Go for the jugular, Larry! Make Utah Great Also!
Hope they hit him hard on his gun control bull crap in Mass. Mormons like their guns.
Mitten’s “Romneycare” was the blueprint for Øbamacare.
And he rolled over on gay marriage when ordered to do so by the SCOMA.
That may be true, but I fear Utah will still vote for him because he is a Mormon. Hope I’m wrong.
Romney is from Michigan and Massachusetts. Why is Trump pushing him for a state he’s not from?
absolutely no downside to hitting Romney hard and HARDER.
“Mitt is too liberal for UT and hes a carpet-bagger.”
Utah folks are all across the place, like other places.
Glenn Beck-Evan McMuffin, Ted Cruz, Donald trump, etc.
Very solidly “Republican,” of late.
Which is why Romney is nearly a shoe n, unless he screws up very badly. And Romney will be 2 hrs. by plane from La Jolla and his other fine home.
Looks like Larry is a Mormon, actually lives in Utah, graduated from BYU and BYU Law, and has values that better match his constituents. Romney has the backing of the establishment, both GOP and LDS. He also has the endorsement of President Trump, for now...
Praying Utahans elect a decent senator and not this embarrassment
Willard has had a house in Park City for a long time. He has used it to entertain ambition critters and to keep his LDS homies in touch.
