Joe Biden thinks Mitt Romney should run for office again


Former Vice President Joe Biden thinks Mitt Romney should return to the life of public service and run for Senate, CNN reports.

Biden, speaking at his onetime rival's recent ideas summit in Utah, called the former Republican presidential candidate "a man of integrity," according to CNN, and encouraged him to "mount a challenge next year."

"By the way, you should run for Senate," one attendee said Biden commented.

The pair were discussing the "toughest problems facing" America.

Biden recently launched the American Possibilities political action committee.

President Trump passed over Romney for secretary of state.

Romney, who is 70, has still weighed in on current events on social media.

According to the Associated Press, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has also reached out to Romney about running for office. 

At the summit in Utah, Biden and Romney talked about how Democrats failed to connect with millennials and working class voters in the 2016 election. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
