Laura Ingraham is a powerhouse on Fox News.
And she’s long been a powershouse in the conservative community.
Will she soon be a powerhouse in politics?
As in….Senator Ingraham?
On her show last night she put Mitt Romney on notice that she’s considering running again him!
Check this out:
Here's more on the developing story, from Fox News:
"If he were up for reelection this year, the people of Utah would have their own payback against him because they were defrauded by Romney. For when he had to choose, he chose [Charles] Schumer and Kamala [Harris] over common sense and conservatism," Ingraham said. "If you're one of Romney's constituents in Utah, you're out of luck. If you're a business in need of a regulation reexamined, don't bother calling his office. He has no power anymore."
Ingraham brought up Romney's previous presidential runs saying, "we thought you'd be better for America and the way you repay millions of people, the millions who did vote for you in 2012 is to throw in with the very people who don't share our goals, who hate us. And by the way, who still hate you."
"Like all the other bitter 'Never Trumpers', he'd rather see the entire American economy go down the drain than give Trump a victory," Ingraham said.
The host then called on Romney to resign from the Senate and said she's considering moving to Utah in four years to oppose him.
"Mitt, you made your stand. Now should you should resign. You committed a fraud on the people of Utah, on the Republican Party, on the Constitution, and a thoroughly embarrassed yourself," Ingraham said. "If I have to move there to run against him in four and a half years, I will."

Laura Ingraham has called on Mitt Romney to resign, and suggested she may even run against him in 2024. The Fox News host has attacked the Utah senator's decision to be the only Republican to vote against President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial.
Romney defied his party and was the sole GOP senator voting to convict Trump, saying that as a juror, he swore an oath "before God, to exercise impartial justice," when deciding whether he thought Trump had pressured Ukraine to investigate his political rivals in return for military aid.
"My vote will likely be in the minority in the Senate. But irrespective of these things, with my vote, I will tell my children and their children that I did my duty to the best of my ability, believing that my country expected it of me," Romney said.
However, Ingraham was among many conservative commentators who took aim at Romney, saying on her show Wednesday night: "Mitt, you made your stand, now you should resign."Talk show host Laura Ingraham speaks during CPAC 2019 February 28, 2019 in National Harbor, Maryland.

"You committed a fraud on the people of Utah on the Republican Party, on the Constitution, and have thoroughly embarrassed yourself."
She went on to question his motives for entering politics, calling him "the ultimate selfish, preening, self-centered politician."
"I hope he enjoys his brief moment in the sun while he is lauded by the very people who spent the last 20 years attacking him because in a few weeks, the phone will stop ringing. He will be lucky to get booked on Chris Cuomo's show," referring to the CNN host.
"We won't ever forget. Utah should never forget, and if I have to move there to run against him in four-and-a-half years, I will," referring to a possible run in the 2024 Republican primaries.
