Mitt Romney Loyalists Weigh Trump Support After Utah Retreat

Mitt Romney Loyalists Weigh Trump Support After Utah RetreatMitt Romney loyalists who attended the former Republican nominee’s donor retreat over the weekend —- many of whom spearheaded the “Never Trump” movement —- are facing tough decisions about who to back this cycle. Summit attendees looking for guidance weren’t given any clear answers, but they did get the chance to hear from both anti-Trump Republicans, like Nebraska senator Ben Sasse, and party leaders who have endorsed Trump, including House Speaker Paul Ryan and party chairman Reince Priebus. “These guys are a lot smarter than I am, and if they’re endorsing [Trump], it’s reassuring to me to say, ‘Well, that’s kind of where I’m leaning because I just can’t stand the thought of Hillary,’” said Scott Keller, a former Romney backer from Utah who has decided to support Trump.
