WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) – Mitt Romney has one of the best-known names in politics, but he still must face down nearly a dozen Utah contenders in his bid to restart his political career with a U.S. Senate seat. Romney faces a crowd of far-right-leaning delegates Saturday at the Utah Republican Party convention. A loss would be awkward for Romney, but it wouldn’t end his campaign. That’s because candidates can also win a primary spot in Utah by gathering voter signatures, and Romney has done that.
