SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Mitt Romney wins Utah GOP Senate primary after toning down criticism on Donald Trump.

The former Massachusetts Gov. Romney and presidential candidate defeated little-known state Rep. Mike Kennedy, who questioned Romney’s conservative credentials and ability to work well with the president.

Romney, too, was endorsed by Trump despite his aggressive criticism of Trump during the 2016 campaign.
