The Atlantic: Romney Ponders 2018 Senate Run

Sources told The Atlantic that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has encouraged Romney to run for the seat in 2018 - if Hatch retires. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, has told the National Journal he might be step aside if Mitt Romney made a decision to run for his seat in the U.S. Senate.

Hatch floated Romney as a possible successor in an interview with National Journal last week, saying the former MA governor "would be ideal". "If he wants to run again, I'm for him". I said, 'If I don't run I'd sure like him to consider running.' He's not going to run if I do.

With Messi back, Barcelona faces free-falling Sevilla
Forward Alvaro Morata scored a hat trick and playmaker James Rodriguez also found the net to secure Madrid's fifth win in a row. Sevilla , who had Vitolo sent off for a second booking in the 91st minute, are fourth on 58 points. "We have to believe again".

Romney has said that he would only consider the bid if and when he has the blessing of Sen. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which is headquartered in Utah, has long relied on Hatch to serve as a representative and ambassador in Washington-a role that Romney views as important, and necessary. Chaffetz raised Hatch's ire in 2012 when he publicly considered challenging Hatch for his seat.

Romney served as the 70th governor of MA from 2003 to 2007 before running for president in both 2008 and 2012.

Comcast Jumps Into Wireless Service With Xfinity Mobile Using Verizon's Network
Customers can also pay as they go at $12/GB of data - and switch from that plan to unlimited and back again with no penalties . Comcast executives said the Verizon partnership featured good economics for both sides even though the companies will compete.

Also, if Hatch decides to retire, Romney would want someone of the Mormon faith in the Senate to defend the church, which he belongs to. Romney was openly critical of President Trump as the 2016 election progressed, but scaled back his vocal opposition after Trump won the presidency and considered Romney for USA secretary of state.

Although he was raised in Michigan, Romney has strong links to the state of Utah, owning a vacation home in Salt Lake City, as well as holding an honorary doctorate from the University of Utah. "You just have to sift through that and wait to see the actions from individuals", Evans said. And I think he has time.

Amazon launches "Amazon Cash"
This makes sense as e-commerce in the USA has slowed down and Amazon is facing tough competition from Alibaba BABA and eBay EBAY. According to Amazon , the new Amazon Cash service is "simple, quick, and there are no fees".
