Mitt Romney Greeted with Boos at Utah GOP Convention After Narrowly Avoiding Censure

HeadlineMay 03, 2021

Back in the U.S., Republican Senator Mitt Romney was booed and called a “traitor” and a “communist” as he gave a speech Saturday at the Utah Republican convention.

Sen. Mitt Romney: “Now, you know me as a person who — who says what he thinks, and I don’t hide the fact that I wasn’t a fan of our last president’s character issues.”

Audience: “Boo!”

Sen. Mitt Romney: “And I’m also no fan” —

Audience: “Boo!”

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. Cheney is the third-ranking House Republican and one of 10 Republican congressmembers who voted to impeach Trump earlier this year. She recently was forced to defend herself after fist-bumping President Biden at his address to Congress last week.
