Scott Baio claims he’s considering moving to Utah in order to run for Senate in 2024 against Mitt Romney, a man who the actor once actively campaigned for.
Romney tweeted a statement scolding the president after his legal team made accusations of a massive election fraud scheme in a media briefing on Thursday.
“Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election,” tweeted Romney.
“It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American President,” he added.
Mitt Romney is one of the sole Republicans in a leadership role to call Joe Biden “President-elect,” as well.
A day after Sen. Mitt Romney criticized President Trump’s moves to hold up election results, Scott Baio tweeted Friday that he might move to Utah and challenge for his seat.
“Hey @MittRomney, beautiful golf courses in Utah……maybe I’ll move there, play a few rounds and unseat you,” tweeted Baio.
“P.S. My wife is still waiting for her $2600 refund. Remember your wife canceled that Beverly Hills political luncheon fundraiser? But your campaign kept the money,” he added.
If Baio chooses to follow through and challenge Romney, he’ll have to wait a few years. Romney won’t be up for reelection until 2024.
Scott Baio is perhaps best know for playing Chachi Arcola on “Happy Days” and its spinoff “Joanie Loves Chachi.” He also starred in “Charles in Charge,” on CBS from 1984 to 1990. He endorsed Romney is his 2012 presidential campaign and uses Twitter to share his political views to his more than 534,000 followers.
On Twitter Baio, who spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention, has supported Trump’s efforts to overturn the November president election that has been called for President-elect Joe Biden.
Trump fired back at Romney Friday morning, “RINO Mitt Romney should read this. I’m sure, however, that he feels he got slaughtering by Obama ‘fair and square.'”
