More than two thousand Utah Republicans booed Senator Mitt Romney as he arrived to speak at a convention in his home state on Saturday. The vocal backlash came after Romney narrowly avoided censure by the Utah GOP over his votes during the two impeachment trials of President Donald Trump. ‘Aren’t you embarrassed?’ said Romney in response to the catcalling as he walked onto the stage. ‘I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues,’ he said. Shouts of ‘traitor’ and ‘communist’ could be heard from the crowd. ‘You can boo all you like,’ Romney continued. ‘I’ve been a Republican all of my life. My dad was the governor of Michigan and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012. ‘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,’ Romney added.
