This year presented both new challenges and opportunities. Ukraine continued to defend itself against Russia’s unprovoked invasion; Hamas-led terrorist attacks against the people of Israel have sparked a war in Gaza; and political divisions in America have caused greater gridlock and more partisan posturing in Washington. Withstanding these difficulties, Senator Romney pushed forward on his priorities to help support Utah’s infrastructure needs, address continued drought conditions in the West, combat the growing China threat, stabilize our burgeoning public debt, and support democracies, like Israel and Ukraine, in the face of tyranny.

From mine to yours: Merry Christmas 🎄

I’m reminded of Abraham Lincoln’s words, during his second inaugural address when the country was in the final pangs of the Civil War: “With malice toward none with charity for all with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right let us strive on to finish the work we are in to bind up the nation’s wounds.” During this holiday season, may we commit ourselves to being agents in binding up the wounds of our time—starting in our own families, neighborhoods, and communities. It’s my wish that Utahns, and all Americans, can find long-lasting peace, joy, and hope in their lives. Ann and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

A comprehensive China strategy is overdue.

China has ambitions to overtake the United States as the global leader, and they’re well on track to do so.

He also welcomed a major highway infrastructure investment coming to Iron County funded by the bipartisan infrastructure bill, introduced legislation to combat the financing of terrorist groups like Hamas, and met with leaders from Utah to advance priorities for our state.

Senators Romney, Warner (D-VA), Rounds (R-SD), and Reed (D-RI) introduced bipartisan legislation to crack down on terrorist organizations—like Hamas—by applying sanctions to foreign parties that facilitate financial transactions with terrorists.
