(FeaturedNews.com) – On Monday, Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) expressed support for retiring Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) to take over as the next Harvard University president. He also cited concerns about how the elite schools have seen a rise in antisemitism on campus in the past few months.

The position was first vacated in early January after former University President Claudine Gay had decided to resign after the school alumni and government officials had pushed for her resignation. This came after the increase in campus antisemitism. After her resignation, Alan Garber was called to serve as the interim president.

Feetterman put out a statement in which he expressed worries about the rise of antisemitism at Columbia University. He also stated that Romney’s leadership should “recalibrate” and as he argued academia should not be relating to “far-left orthodoxy.”

In a statement regarding Romney on X, formerly known as Twitter, Fetterman claimed that as an alumnus of Harvard, this season at Columbia had been full of anti-semitism. He proceeded to say that co-signed his support for Romney on X.

As part of his post, Fetterman had also shown a number of screenshots from a Washington Post op-ed which had been written by Daniel Rosen, the President of the American Jewish Congress, who argued that Romney would be to clean Harvard up.

Currently, The Hill has not received a response from Romney or Harvard regarding whether or not there was any interest in Romney actually taking up this position.

Rosen argued that he was “a lifelong Democrat” who had not supported Romney in 2008 and yet he believed that Romney would be able to reform the university as necessary in order to fight against antisemitism.
