Evan McMullin, the Independent presidential candidate who scored 21.5% of the vote in Utah and finished just six points behind Hillary Clinton for second place, was openly considering entering a Republican primary bid against Sen. Orrin Hatch. With the Senator now officially retiring, Mr. McMullin was quoted as saying he would support former presidential nominee and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, should the latter man decide to run for the Senate seat. As has been the case for months, Mr. Romney remains silent about whether he would enter a new political contest.
