Local News

CLINTON, Utah (News4Utah) – Senate candidate Mitt Romney held a town hall for senior citizens in Clinton Wednesday evening.

Romney discussed a wide variety of topics including protecting Medicare and Medicaid and how to handle the immigration status of Dreamers.

The Senate candidate said Dreamers should be allowed to remain the country and worker. He also talked about state’s rights.

“I also believe it’s very important to return to a principle that was part of the constitution and that we seem to have forgotten that is that those powers not specifically granted to the federal government should be kept by the states and the people,” said Romney.

Romney also talked briefly about the late Senator John McCain. He called him a hero who served valiantly. He said the two of them supported each other during the individual presidential runs.
