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

'So, what do you think about President Biden's first 100 days?' Romney asked.

"You can boo all you like", Romney said, the Tribune reported.

He defended himself on stage, saying he was a "person 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".

About 1,900 delegates were in attendance at the start of the state organizing convention, held at the Maverik Center, Cox said. Romney also voted to convict Mr. Trump on one of two charges against him at his 2020 impeachment trial, becoming the first senator in history to vote to convict a president in his or her own party. Romney was the only GOP senator to vote against Trump in both trials.

The former MA governor was met with the fierce backlash, including cries of "traitor" and "communist", as he took the stage at a convention center in Utah's capital, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Derek Brown, Chairman of the Utah GOP, eventually stepped in and told those in the audience to be more respectful.

Davis County delegate Don Guymon, who authored the resolution to censure Romney, said the senator's votes to remove Trump from office "hurt the Constitution and hurt the party".

Romney's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

'So yeah, I understand that I have a few folks that don't like me terribly much and I'm sorry about that. "But I express my mind as I believe is right and I follow my conscience as I believe is right". As Romney walked up to the lectern to speak, he was loudly booed by the Republican crowd. This week, he correctly said that China is an existential threat to our democracy. "My dad was the governor of MI and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012". "I worked for Republicans across the country, and if you don't recall, I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012". We need to be accepting of differences in our party.

Senator Mitt Romney was booed on Saturday at the Utah GOP convention, although a motion to censure him over his vote to impeach former President Donald Trump failed.

Sen. Susan Collins said Sunday that she was "appalled" to see fellow Republican Sen. "Those are the principles that unite us".

The developments come after Romney, a vocal critic of Donald Trump, told The New York Times in late February that he was "pretty sure" the former United States president would win the Republican Party's presidential primary in 2024 if he decides to run.
