Trump speaks to Romney amid speculation on Utah Senate race

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — A top White House aide says President Donald Trump spoke late Tuesday with 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Kellyanne Conway said on CNN Wednesday that the two had a "wonderful conversation."

It was not clear if they discussed the Utah Senate race. Romney has been considering a 2018 run in Utah if Sen. Orrin Hatch retires. Trump has encouraged Hatch, 83, to seek another term.

Conway wouldn't say if Trump would support Romney in a potential Senate bid.

Romney fiercely criticized Trump during the presidential campaign.

Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon assailed Romney during a Tuesday rally for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. Bannon attacked Romney as a "draft dodger." Romney received a draft deferment for his missionary work in France.
