Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his team are working behind-the-scenes in Washington, D.C. to recruit “Never Trump” Republicans to endorse his run for president.
His campaign claimed the effort is working — and some “major” Republican lawmaker is secretly planning to endorse Biden over President Donald Trump.
Could that include Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, the failed 2012 Republican presidential candidate?
It wouldn’t be too far of a stretch. Romney’s dislike for Trump is well documented — and the feeling is mutual. The two have frequently clashed in both private and public since 2016.
Earlier this year, Romney was the only Republican to vote in favor of removing Trump from office during the Democrat-led impeachment efforts.
Biden hinted at a deal with major “Never Trump” Republicans on a recent podcast appearance with soccer player Megan Rapinoe.
Rapinoe said that Biden would need “a lot of help” if he was going to win the 2016 election. Biden replied that he’d been “speaking to a lot of Republicans … former colleagues, who are calling and saying ‘Joe, if you win, we’re gonna help.’”
“Matter of fact, there’s some major Republicans who are already forming ‘Republicans for Biden,’” the former vice president said. “Major officeholders.”
There’s been speculation on social media in recent weeks that Romney would potentially break ranks with the Republican Party because of his dislike for Trump.
He also recently defended Biden’s strange links in Ukraine, calling a forthcoming probe a “political” hit.
Could Romney be preparing to endorse Biden’s presidential run?
Or will he remain loyal to the Republican Party?
