The life of Mitt Romney

The only Republican senator who voted to impeach Trump — and a part of a political dynasty. This is Mitt Romney.

An American politician and businessman

He ran for president twice, he’s a Mormon, a family man, and the only Republican senator who voted to impeach the president. This is the story of Mitt Romney.

He was born in 1947, in Detroit As a teenager, he caught the political bug, watching his father George, become Governor of Michigan. At 19, he went to France as a Mormon missionary, and learnt the language. He reportedly managed to convert a dozen people during his 30-month stint. He survived a horrific car crash, and returned to the U.S., where he married Ann, his high-school sweetheart, in 1969.

After graduating from Harvard in 1975, Romney spent nearly 20 years working for Bain Capital At 37, Romney’s first campaign against Ted Kennedy for a Senate seat, was a failure. He reportedly told his brother "I never want to run for something again unless I can win". In 1998, Ann Romney was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Romney took over the scandal-ridden 2002 Salt Lake City Games. They served as a launching pad for his first successful election.

The Governor of Massachusetts At 55, following his father’s footsteps, he became Governor but of Massachusetts. He ran his first presidential campaign, in 2008, pursuing the Republican nomination. John McCain attacked Romney on his political opportunism, and numerous ideological flip-flops, like his stance on abortion. Romney dropped out.

His presidential run In 2012, Romney ran for president again, this time becoming his party’s nominee, earning the support of Donald Trump. Romney lost, missing his chance to become the first Mormon president in U.S. history. In 2016, Mitt Romney criticized Donald Trump’s run.

After Trump’s election, when Romney was considered for Secretary of State, he changed his position… “It’s not easy winning. I know that myself, he did something I tried to do and was unsuccessful in accomplishing. He won the general election and he continues with a message of inclusion and bringing people together.”, he shared.

Making his mark on history In 2018, Romney ran for Senator, with Trump’s endorsement. By the age of 72, Romney became U.S. senator and tensions with the president resumed. In 2020, Romney made history, by becoming the first U.S. senator to impeach a president from his own party.

    He voted to impeach the president based on the lies from the left. He supported their campaign of misinformation because of jealousy. He is the type of Republican like the bushes were. If he ever becomes president he will lead the country down the same path that the Democrats have been trying to take it. The path down the toilet. These people are not Republicans or democrats but they are globalist. A Mormon LOL. Hell some Democrats claim to be Catholic but you see how well they practice their religion.

    He's nothing but a dip wad clown trying to position himself for another failed run from president. He'd be worse than Biden.

    Bah Humbug. Romney is part of the problem. He thinks capitalism will save us and hold himself up as an example. Trickle down economics is fatally flawed.

    Traitor. To our country and the Mormon church. He is supporting Biden and his administration. Which means he is supporting ABORTION. AN unforgivable sin . It's an abomination! AND he would of been President if he didn't say he wanted to get rid of all entitlements. Which means all. Not just food stamps Medicaid. But agriculture as well. Student Grants, etc. etc. He is a TRAITOR to alot.
