Mitt Romney wants to be the next Utah Senator. However, people in Utah are not really supporting him, at least not financially. 86% of Mitt’s donations have come from out-of-state donors and a good portion are coming from Massachusetts, California and New York. There are also some big names giving him money. Both former President Bush and former Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson are backing Romney.
It is obvious why Mitt chose Utah and it is not because he is a Mormon. Mormons are everywhere now days. It is because Utah is a very red state. This reminds me of when Hillary picked New York (a very blue state) to run for the Senate. Is Mitt the Republican Hillary? I hope not. Let’s all not forget that Hillary is from Arkansas and Mitt is from Massachusetts….
