The next round might be over a Utah Senate seat.
Steve Bannon is going after Mitt Romney for his disavowal of Roy Moore — and he may be gearing up another battle against former GOP presidential candidate, this one over Utah’s Senate seat.
It all started when Romney tweeted on Monday that electing Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate who has been accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old and making sexual and romantic overtures toward other teenagers while he was in his 30s, would be a “stain on the GOP and the nation.”
Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation. Leigh Corfman and other victims are courageous heroes. No vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity.

Then on Tuesday, Bannon, a former White House adviser, tried to rev up the crowds at a rally for Moore in Fairhope, Alabama. He attacked Democrat Doug Jones, Moore’s opponent, as a “Hillary Clinton globalist,” said the media is ignoring President Trump’s accomplishments, bashed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and made fun of Republican Sen. Jeff Flake for only writing a $100 check to Jones.
Then he lit into Romney and his behavior during the Vietnam War.
“Judge Roy Moore has more honor and integrity in that pinky finger than your entire family has in its whole DNA. You hid behind your religion,” Bannon said. “You went to France to be a missionary while men were dying in Vietnam. Do not talk about honor and integrity.”
“You ran for commander in chief and had five sons — not one day of service in Afghanistan or Iraq. We have 7,000 dead and 52,000 casualties, and where were the Romneys during those wars?” he continued.
