Wash Post:

Sen. Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee in 2012 and the only member of his party to twice vote to convict former president Donald Trump in politically charged impeachment trials, announced Wednesday that he will not seek a second term in the Senate representing Utah, saying in an interview that it is time for a new generation to “step up” and “shape the world they’re going to live in.”

Romney, 76, said his decision not to run again was heavily influenced by his belief that a second term, which would take him into his 80s, probably would be less productive and less satisfying than the current term has been. He blamed that both on the disarray he sees among House Republicans and on his own lack of confidence in the leadership of President Biden and Trump.

what is revealing is how Romney's fellow Senate GOPers ridicule Trump and MAGA in private and play sycophants in public

This Atlantic article is very long, but interesting

Hoping that Utah's GOP voters don't fall for Trump's sirene song.

In 2016, Utah GOPers didn't really care for Trump's antics and behavior, but have morphed into MAGAts so I fear there will be a Trumper to replace Romney
