‘Traitor’ Romney booed in Republican flare-up

Utah Republicans’ bid to censure Sen. Mitt Romney for Trump impeachment votes fails

Utah Republicans’ bid to censure Sen. Mitt Romney for Trump impeachment votes fails

Mitt Romney was booed at his home state GOP convention in Utah this weekend, while delegates cheered the state's other us senator, Mike Lee.

'So yeah, I understand that I have a few folks that don't like me terribly much and I'm sorry about that.

The junior senator was also booed when he appeared in an introductory video Saturday, according to Utah reporter Ben Winslow, of a local Fox affiliate.

Romney was one of seven Republicans who voted to convict Mr. Trump at his February impeachment trial.

Romney managed to elicit a few cheers when he asked the crowd if they were fans of Biden. "Those are the principles that unite us".

The calls from the delegates only died down after the outgoing party chair, Derek Brown, told the crowd to "show respect" for Romney, according to the Tribune. "I've been a Republican all of my life. Are we a party of principle or a party of a person?" But I express my mind as I believe is right and I follow my conscience as I believe is right, ' Romney added.

Many in the crowd cheered as Romney implored: "Let me tell you something, if we divide our party, we're going to be a losing party". "My dad was the governor of MI and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012".

"In his inauguration speech, he promised bipartisanship", Romney said.

"We need to come together in strength and unity", he said.

In a statement emailed to The Washington Post on Sunday, Guymon said that while it was "disappointing" that the resolution did not pass, he believed Romney "received a clear message yesterday that grass-roots Republicans represented by the state delegates are unhappy with his performance in the US Senate".

'This was a process driven by Democrats who hated Trump, ' Guymon said.

"Romney's vote in the first impeachment emboldened Democrats who continued to harass Trump".

As Collins spoke of other leaders in the Republican Party, Tapper noted that Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) has come under attack by top members of her own party for criticizing Trump. 'Let´s not turn this into a Trump or no Trump thing.

Romney doesn't face voter repercussions in an impending re-election race like Murkowski in 2022, but his critical stance against Trump following the January 6 Capitol attack was nothing new.
