Biden encourages Romney to consider Senate run in Utah


Davis' report that Clinton spoke to Romney about taking the position within the Trump administration is surprising, to say the least. After being passed over for Trump's secretary of state, Romney has campaigned for GOP candidates and weighed in on political matters via social media.

The two men were on opposite sides of the 2012 election - Biden as the running mate of President Barack Obama and Romney as the Republican presidential nominee. "We would very much like to see you serve in that capacity".

He later seemed embrace Trump when he was considered for the top diplomatic job. Romney said. "It's not as if I suddenly had a differing view at that point of the president and the things that I had felt about him in the past". This year's business and policy-focused summit drew in top donors, executives and office holders from the Republican party, including Republican Senators Lindsey Graham of SC and John McCain of Arizona. The event featured a number of big-name political operatives, including Joe Biden, who reportedly criticized Hillary Clinton during his own speech.

Perhaps the most surprise appearance at the summit was from former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden. Former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden is encouraging former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to run for a senate seat in Utah now held by Orrin Hatch if the senator decides to retire next year. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), the longest-serving Republican in the Senate.

Biden also stepped on Hillary just last month, saying he never thought she was a "great candidate" during a conference in Las Vegas.
