52 Republican Senators Are Part of Coronavirus Task Force — All Except Mitt Romney

Linkedin Share

There are 53 Republican senators currently serving in the upper chamber. 45 Democrats. Two Independents. Every GOP senator is a member of the new coronavirus task force, except for Mitt Romney – a twice-failed presidential candidate.

Here’s the scoop, via The Hill:

A list released by the White House on Thursday afternoon of the “Opening Up America Again Congressional Group” included nearly 70 senators, including all 52 of Romney’s GOP colleagues in the chamber.

A spokeswoman for Romney and a source familiar confirmed that the GOP senator was not asked to take part in the task force.

Romney wasn’t the only senator not included on the new White House task force. More than two dozen Democrats were not included, such as Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who both ran for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination. Red-state Democrats Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Doug Jones (Ala.) also were not included.

Not long after Trump won the 2016 general election, he had dinner Romney.

Back then, there were rumors that the now-Utah senator might be nominated for secretary of state.

Obviously, nothing ever came of it. Instead, Mitt continued to wage war with Trump verbally – often siding with Democrats on key issues.

It was reported that Romney was self-quarantining after being near Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who tested positive for Coronavirus. Trump’s response was pretty darn funny.
