The RINO politician has burnt many bridges during his time in Washington, D.C. But his latest announcement has caused even more chaos.

And Mitt Romney’s presidential election endorsement leaves Republicans in a state of shock.

Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) is planning to retire from the U.S. Senate later this year.

Conservatives are excited about this because that means one less RINO in power.

Romney’s criticism of former President Donald Trump and his refusal to endorse him have been especially frustrating as Republicans are trying to rally behind Trump to defeat President Joe Biden this fall.

But now the senator from Utah has decided to endorse a Republican in a surprising twist.

On Sunday morning, Romney posted on the social media platform X, that he supports Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL) as a vice presidential nominee in the 2024 presidential election.

Britt was the Republican who gave the rebuttal to Biden’s State of the Union address last Thursday night.

She received some criticism for it however because of the way she delivered it.

“In a good way, the delivery was over-the-top, out of character–Biden’s, of course. Katie Britt’s too. The media overreaction to hers, not his tells us who liberals most fear as VP nominee,” read Romney’s X post supporting Britt.

Republicans felt that Britt was able to bring up the correct topics during her speech, but wasn’t able to deliver it in a manner that felt natural. Some even labeled the rebuttal as “cringe.”

According to Breitbart News’ Hannah Bleau Knudsen, Sen. Britt “appeared to address the right topics on paper, her speaking style and overall delivery completely failed to resonate, prompting critiques all across the board, as many mocked her breathy speech, full of pauses, hushed tones, and abrupt emotional switches from near-tears to happy-go-lucky.”

Here’s a snippet of Britt’s rebuttal speech:

As for Donald Trump, it’s unclear if he’s considering Britt as a potential running mate.

He has a VP short list that has recently been revealed, but according to a senior adviser from his campaign, Jason Miller, Trump’s list “is actually growing and getting longer.”

“I think we’re quite a ways away, though, from seeing anything,” Miller told NBC News.

It is unlikely, however, that Trump will really listen to Romney’s advice on who the Republican vice presidential candidate will be.
