The Hill's Josh Lederman reports that Mitt Romney has only made a personal donation in one Senate race this year, and in that race, he's donated to the two leading GOP candidates.
His donations have gone to Rep. Jeff Flake and his opponent, Wil Cardon. Both are trying to replace retiring Sen. Jon Kyl.
So why the dual donations?
Flake endorsed Romney early and has been a good surrogate for him, while Cardon's dad is Romney's second cousin!
Romney’s campaign did not respond to an email asking whether the former governor will endorse in the GOP primary.
“I’m sure Romney just definitely does not want to see this thing devolve into a cow pie contest,” said an Arizona Republican strategist unaffiliated in the race. “Both come from long Mormon families. There are deep relationships throughout."
