Mitt Romney urged Biden to run for president, new ebook says – RedState
The Institution continues to remain collectively.
A brand new guide notes that Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) secretly urged Joe Biden to run for president against Donald Trump. During the night of the 2018 midterm elections, Romney spoke to Biden by phone and told him, “you need to show up.”
Romney won his race for the US Senate that same night. A guide to come obtained by The Guardian is titled “The Long Alliance: The Imperfect Union of Joe Biden and Barack Obama” by Gabriel Debenedetti, which details the change between Romeny and Biden.
The Guardianthe excerpt says:
“At one level [Biden] linked to Mitt Romney, who had been elected to the Senate that night as a rare Republican opposed to Trump. They were hot as Biden cheered Romney’s victory. Then Obama’s former rival is right: Running is important, Romney said.
The guide cites interviews with “colleagues, aides, rivals, confidants, allies and eyewitnesses” of Obama and Biden.
Romney has repeatedly criticized Trump. He reportedly called Trump a “fraud” and pointed to his “bullying, greed, display, misogyny, nonsensical third-grade theatrics.” While it seems shocking that a GOP senator would encourage a Democrat to run for president, it’s not surprising because the institution remains supportive.

Romney was the only GOP member to vote twice to convict Trump. Although Romney did not vote for Trump, he did not say he voted for Biden. However, it seems odd that he urged Biden to run for president but did not vote for him. He criticized Biden and said in January that Biden was only elected to “stop the madman” Trump.
“He had to recognize that when he was elected, people weren’t looking for him to rework America. They tried to get back to normal, to stop the madman.
“It seems like we’re persevering to see the kinds of covers and promotions that aren’t accepted by Americans.”
“I mean, people are 7% poorer now because of Biden inflation. Gas prices are, what, 50% higher than they were when he took the job. The border is a multitude. COVID was on the rise, but it hadn’t put in place the testing people wanted to keep themselves safe. After which, in fact, there was the disaster in Afghanistan. Russia is now threatening Ukraine. Things shouldn’t go right, and the president needs to stop and reset and say what he’s trying to do.
It remains to be seen whether Romney will help another GOP candidate for 2024 if Trump decides to run for president again.
The book will be available for purchase on September 13.
