A motion to censure Romney at the Utah convention narrowly failed. He is the only Republican to have twice voted to impeach former President Trump.
Meanwhile, speculation is growing that the Republican Party will seek to oust Wyoming Congressmember Liz Cheney from her leadership role.

She recently was forced to defend herself after fist-bumping President Biden at his address to Congress last week.
