Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who was the Republican contender for President in 2012, said that former President Trump would “very likely” be the GOP’s nominee if he sought another White House term in 2024.

“I don’t delude myself into thinking I have a big swath of the Republican Party,” Romney, who has been a regular critic of Trump, said during an interview with Politico. “It’s hard to imagine anything that would derail his support. So, if he wants to become the nominee in ‘24, I think he’s very likely to achieve that.”

Trump has teased a potential run for President in 2024 but has not publicly revealed his plans beyond this year’s midterm elections. He has instead used his influence over the party’s base to boost candidates in Republican primaries who have promised support from him, most notably J.D. Vance in the Ohio Republican Senate primary on Tuesday.

“I think we’re going to have a tremendous season. I think we’re going to win many races with great candidates who will go on to big numbers in the fall,” Trump said this week following Vance’s victory.

Romney has been a vocal critic of Trump dating back to the 2016 presidential race, during which he called the real estate mogul and then-GOP hopeful “a fraud.”

The senator was the lone Republican to vote to convict Trump during his first impeachment and has since regretted the former President’s influence over voters in the Republican Party.

“He will have an enormous impact on our party going forward. I believe most people who voted for Donald Trump want to make sure that his principles and his policies are pursued,” Romney said after the 2020 election. “But I think if you look at the numbers and look at the pickup that Republicans had in statehouses across the country and Congress and holding the Senate so far, versus our loss in the presidency, you’d suggest that the presidential race was more a matter of a referendum on a person.”

A ABC News / Washington Post poll this week found that 60 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning Independents think Republican leaders should follow Trump, with just 34 percent saying they should lead the party differently. That comes in a survey where a 52 percent overall majority said Trump should be charged with crimes over January 6.

There have been other demonstrations of Trump’s power through his sway in primaries and how other leading Republicans have deferred to him.

Trump, through his support to Vance in the three-way primary, and his son Donald Trump, Jr., campaigned with Vance. Trump-aligned tech investor Peter Thiel poured millions into the race.
