The AP reported on Wednesday that former presidential candidate Mitt Romney will officially launch his run for the Senate in Utah on Thursday of this week, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Romney, a former Massachusetts governor and one of the most famous Mormons, is expected to easily win the Senate seat in Utah, which is heavily Mormon.

The 70-year-old Republican moved to Utah after losing the 2012 presidential election and is very popular in the state. He helped turn around the scandal-plagued 2002 Winter Olympics and has earned broad respect in the state.

Romney will replace longtime Republican congressman Orrin Hatch, who announced his retirement late last year. Hatch is currently the longest-serving Republican senator in U.S. history.

Utah’s GOP chair reacted strongly to the news:

  4. The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and ‘skin’ the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.
