It looks like Mitt Romney’s finally going to make this official. He’s expected to announce his Senate run tomorrow.

Mitt Romney will launch his Utah Senate campaign Thursday morning with a low key announcement on social media, and will make his first public appearance a day later near Salt Lake City with a keynote address to a gathering of grassroots Republicans.

Romney teased his run for Senate in a Feb. 1 tweet, saying that he would have an announcement to make on Feb. 15. On Wednesday, Romney previewed his campaign again in a short Facebook post. Sources in Utah told the Washington Examiner that Romney that will officially jump into the 2018 Senate race with a digital announcement, rather than holding at a staged rally with supporters.

Since Utah is a heavily Republican state and the people love him, we’re probably going to have a Senator Mitt Romney on our hands! Many conservatives are less than thrilled.
