Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz will host a town hall next Thursday night and endorse Utah Senate candidate and Riverton Mayor Trent Staggs, who is running to replace Mitt Romney, the Daily Caller has first learned.

The town hall will take place at Riverton High School on March 28 at 7pm. Gaetz will officially endorse Staggs at the event.

“Mayor Trent Staggs knows how to solve problems – and we have a lot of them in DC. His chief Republican opponent, Rep. John Curtis, has spent his time in Washington presiding over American decline,” Gaetz told the Caller.

Staggs came out early against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, before he announced he would be stepping down as Leader and told the Caller he would “love to see a Mike Lee, Tommy Tuberville or Rand Paul type,” adding that “Rick Scott would be an easy yes for me.”

Staggs has picked up endorsements from many conservatives including Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake and Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville.
