(Salt Lake City, UT) — Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney says he’s considering getting involved in the effort to change how Utah elects its public officials. Romney told the “Boston Globe” he prefers that states hold primaries instead of caucuses or conventions. Romney said primaries are important because they’re a place where voters can see for themselves which candidates are “connecting with the largest number of people.” There’s already an effort afoot by a Utah group called “Count My Vote” who want political nominees chosen only through open primary elections.
