Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney failed to secure the Utah Republican Party's nomination for Senate on Saturday, triggering a June primary.

In the final round of voting at the party's convention, state Rep. Mike Kennedy (R) won 50.88 percent of the vote, with Romney following with 49.12 percent.

Because neither candidate secured 60 percent, the two will head to a June statewide Republican primary.

Romney and Kennedy are running to succeed retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah).

Saturday's defeat was a surprising turn for Romney, whose national profile far exceeds Kennedy's and who could count on a strong donor network and the endorsement of prominent Republicans, including Hatch and President Trump.

When he made his bid official, Romney was considered a virtual lock for the GOP nomination and was not expected to face a serious primary challenger.

Kennedy was first elected to the Utah state house in 2012.

Romney's Senate bid in contrast is only the latest step in a long political career...

This is why everyone who listens to the media's predictions and affords their polling any credibility at all is nuts.

Romney was coronated by Hatch. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss. The fix is in. Much of the changes to the Utah GOP candidate selection process were to clear the way for the carpet bagging RINO. He is smooth and polished. Reminds me of a used car that is too perfect. Something awful lurks beneath the luster. Once he is in, he will be impossible to remove since Utahns will not vote for a Dem Lefty.

Especially when the guy that all the polls say is going to win has been on a losing streak for years. Go, Mike!

PorterN and darthfuster: how has Mike Kennedy voted? I'm not sure if he is your representative, but is in your general area. I'm not familiar with his record/views.

If you'd like to donate to Rep. Mike Kennedy campaign for Utah Senate race here is the link. I'm going to mail him a check today. Romney's just not on the up and up. How he lost to Obama speaks of a flawed conscious.

Sadly Romney will still win the Primary. Our state’s Republican delegates are a lot more conservative/libertarian as well as a lot more educated than our actual Republican voter-base, who for some reason think that “moderate” and RINO compromise is the key to a healthy government.

Well, should Romney win and be a little bitch with Trump, Trump can start calling him 'Mitt da Shitt'.

Seems fitting.

I've met with Kennedy. As of now his head is straight and he understands and respects the bill of rights. I don't know if he'll turn once in power like so many do. He is a solid man as far as I'm concerned and is far and away better than Romney.

Fuckin Romney... I cannot stand the smug, feckless, oily bastard. I fear too many Utah voters will not look past his glossy veneer to see the swamp creature that lies underneath.

Aware Republicans will not back him in the primaries. I hope there are enough aware Republicans. If he is the party nominee, I will vote for him....then I will finger induce vomiting.
