(TheRedWire.com) – Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, the 2012 GOP nominee who had lost the race to then-incumbent President Barack Obama, has stated that he is willing to vote for anyone in the upcoming presidential election except for President Joe Biden, former President Donald Trump, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.
The 76-year-old senator, stepping down from his seat next year, remarked during an interview with CBS’ Norah O’Donnell last month that he would be willing to support any Republican candidates apart from Ramaswamy. He added that all others were “acceptable” options to him. He added that there were also potentially a number of Democrats he was willing to vote for.
Romney noted that in his eyes, any candidate would constitute an upgrade over Trump and Biden. He further stated that while he liked Biden and considered him to be charging, there were certain areas in which he disagreed with him. He also believes that he has made a number of “terrible mistakes” and that it would be better if he had stepped down and allowed someone else to run in his place.
Romney, currently serving his first term in the Senate and was previously the governor of Massachusetts, was asked why he believed Trump was so popular with the majority of Republicans, leading to him having an impressive lead in the 2024 primary race. Romney said that he did not understand how so many people accepted him, as he said he just believed that some people saw it as “our team” and would support it completely.
