SALT LAKE CITY — Tim Aalders, a third-party candidate for the U.S. Senate, is running commercials on radio stations throughout the state declaring he is the "only conservative Republican on the ballot" and urging voters to reject Mitt Romney.
"No one can trust Mitt Romney. Is he the anti-gun, pro-choice, pro-amnesty liberal from Massachusetts or is he the so-called conservative who wants to impeach President (Donald) Trump," the 60-second spot begins.
Aalders, who ran as a Republican in 2012 against Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and as an Independent American Party candidate in 2014 for the 4th Congressional District seat won by Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, describes himself as a "real Republican."
He said in the ad that he will fight amnesty, presumably for immigrants in the country illegally, lower taxes and join the president "against professional politicians so he can truly drain the swamp."
Romney's campaign had no comment on the Aalders ad.
