Romney Endorses Katie Britt for Trump VP

Last week, Joe Biden gave what many hope was his final State of the Union (SOTU) address.

Senator Katie Britt (R-AL), a first-time Senator who has high expectations for the party's future, provided the GOP response.

To that point, after her SOTU rebuttal, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) endorsed Britt as the VP, an endorsement that has probably ruined her political future as far as MAGA and Trump are concerned.

The Future is Now

Britt was clearly chosen for this rebuttal with the future in mind as well as to show a more diverse Republican Senate.

Save a few exceptions, the Republican Senate is mostly old white people, primarily men.

The exceptions to this would be Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), who is black, and Senator Katie Britt (R-AL), who is only 42.

When the rebuttal is chosen, it is usually given to someone who is deemed the future of the party, and at 42, we would hope that is what Britt is.

Her rebuttal to Biden’s address, however, was way over the top.

To me, it seemed like forced emotion and, to quote a friend of mine, a bunch of “wordy words.”

The criticism against that rebuttal was strong from just about everyone but Senator Romney, who claimed the media’s response to her SOTU rebuttal was because they were afraid of Britt.

He posted on X, “In a good way, the delivery was over-the-top, out of character—Biden’s, of course. Katie Britt’s too. The media overreaction to hers not his tells us who liberals most fear as VP nominee.”

Britt was chosen because the establishment in GOP leadership wanted to offer up something other than MAGA to voters, but they made a huge mistake here based on the feedback from Britt’s rebuttal.

Furthermore, with Romney endorsing her as VP, you can be assured that Trump will never pick her, even if he already considered her.

Trump has been a bit coy about naming his vice president, but I am holding firm that Senator Scott will benefit Trump the most as his vice president.

Trump’s numbers with minority voters go up considerably with a black VP, but there is far more to Scott than just being a lure for minority voters who are walking away from Biden.

Of all the top names, Scott is the one that I believe would evoke the most confidence to fill in for Trump if, for some reason, Trump needs to step down as president.
