Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) was elected in 2018 by massive margins. He won the Republican primary by more than 40 points and then the general election by more than 30. Despite his having regularly demonstrated public opposition to President Donald Trump, including before Trump’s 2016 election, Utahns were eager to send him to Washington. After all, the state itself had been unusually skeptical of Trump in 2016, backing him by 18 points after preferring Sen. John McCain of Arizona by 28 points eight years before. In 2012, of course, the state backed Romney’s presidential bid by a massive margin.
