Kellyanne Conway said Wednesday that President Trump and Mitt Romney have a good relationship, but she declined to say whether the president would support the former MA governor and GOP presidential nominee in a possible Senate run in Utah. Two people familiar with the conversation say that Trump and Romney discussed taxes and other issues and that Bannon's name did not come up.
There are 1 comment on the Reuters story from 3 hrs ago, titled In slap at Romney, Trump says he wants Orrin Hatch to run for re-election. Mrs. Conway said that current Utah Sen. That makes him a target for Bannon, an anti-establishment firebrand who has vowed to defeat several Republican Senate incumbents in next year's midterm elections because, in his view, they haven't done enough to support President Donald Trump's policies.
In 2007, when Romney was running for president, a Pew Center study found that the No. 1 term Americans associated with Mormonism was "polygamy", despite the fact that it has been banned by the LDS Church since 1890.
The reason Bannon attacked Romney to begin with was a Tweet the former Massachusetts Governor made about Moore where he said the country would loose "honor" and "integrity" if Moore reaches the Senate.
On Tuesday, Bannon, who left the White House this summer and returned to the helm of Breitbart News, blasted Romney as a "draft dodger" for not serving during the Vietnam War - conveniently failing to mention that his old boss also avoided combat.

Steve Bannon took aim at Romney for receiving a draft deferment for missionary work.
Hatch, 83, is believed to be considering retirement, and Romney, the former MA governor who now lives in Utah, is eyeing a run.
He added, 'You hid behind your religion. "Do not talk about honor and integrity". At least Romney has not feuded with Gold Star families, which is more than can be said for our President. "We have 7,000 dead and 52,000 casualties, and where were the Romneys during those wars?" He later worked as a strategist for Trump, who obtained deferments during the Vietnam War for his education and for bone spurs.
Bannon served seven years in the Navy during the late '70s and early '80s. Neither of Trump's adult sons served in the military. The reaction from prominent Utah Republicans was swift and savage. Though McConnell confirmed on Tuesday that Moore can expect an immediate ethics probe if he's elected, he and many other top Republicans now argue that Alabamans are free to elect a man accused of wooing teenagers to represent them in Congress - and it seems that's what they'll do.
In the report, Romney said it was Hatch himself who recommended him to run for the position but is now unsure of his own decision to retire.
