The one-time face of the “Never Trump” movement and former Massachusetts Governor received congratulations from President Trump and is favored to win the general election in November.
Big and conclusive win by Mitt Romney. Congratulations! I look forward to working together – there is so much good to do. A great and loving family will be coming to D.C.

“Big and conclusive win by Mitt Romney,” the president tweeted following Romney’s victory over Rep. Mike Kennedy. “Congratulations! I look forward to working together – there is so much good to do. A great and loving family will be coming to D.C.”
Romney, who has been a vocal critic of President Trump during the 2016 election, has moved towards a more diplomatic approach during his bid for the Senate.
