Mitt Romney is giving a speech Thursday on the state of the 2016 presidential race, hours before the next Republican debate and at a moment Donald Trump is threatening to run away with the party’s nomination.

Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 nominee, has been increasingly critical of Trump as the billionaire business mogul has gained traction in the race. Trump had a dominating Super Tuesday performance, winning seven states. Romney, who briefly mounting another White House bid this cycle, is not expected to make an endorsement.

Romney will give his speech at the Hinckley Institute of Politics Forum at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City at 11:30 p.m. E.T.
