Romney Booed, But Won’t Be Censured By Utah Republicans
Senator Mitt Romney will not be censured by Utah Republicans despite getting an unfriendly reception at the state convention.
The former presidential candidate was loudly booed as he took the stage Saturday before 21-hundred delegates at the Maverik Center in West Valley City. The delegates narrowly ruled out censuring Romney for voting twice to impeach former President Trump, but they didn't hold back their feelings when he stood to speak. Romney said he's a man who says what he means, and said the former President had character issues. Some of the crowd called Romney a "traitor" or "Communist." Governor Spencer Cox also took some catcalls from delegates upset by COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the state.
Romney made no apologies for his votes to impeach former President Donald Trump.
