  • Reports Mitt Romney was'successfully treated for prostate cancer last year

Romney, 70, was "successfully treated", according to CNN's Jake Tapper who tweeted about the cancer diagnosis citing an anonymous source close to Romney.

"Last year, [former Massachusetts] Governor Mitt Romney was diagnosed with slow-growing prostate cancer", the aide said.

Amid reports of Romney's interest in the Utah seat, Trump publicly encouraged Hatch to seek another term.

News of Romney's health scare comes after Utah Senator Orrin Hatch announced he would not run for reelection in the Fall.

A Romney aide added that the cancer was removed surgically and found not to have spread beyond the prostate.

Romney - who owns homes in both states - changed the location on his Twitter account from MA to Utah the day Hatch announced his retirement. As Chairman of the Senate Finance and Judiciary Committees and as the longest-serving Republican Senator in US history, Senator Hatch has represented the interests of Utah with distinction and honor.

Romney was MA governor from 2003 to 2007. Mandel was again seeking the Republican party nomination to challenge Brown in the 2018 general election, but announced Friday, Jan. 5, 2018, in an open letter that he made a decision to drop his bid, citing his wife's health. In response, Hatch replied that "every good fighter knows when to hang up the gloves". "He is my friend and he will be greatly missed in the U.S. Senate!" Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, speaks before a campaign rally for U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., vice presidential running mate of former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney, at the Gradall Industries Inc. plant in New Philadelphia, Ohio. Trump endorsed Romney during the 2012 race, but Romney became a vocal critic of Trump during the 2016 election.

A Romney spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
