Well, if you ever wanted to know how Utah residents feel about Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) turning his seat into a personal pilgrimage against Donald Trump, one need only watch his recent appearance at Utah’s GOP Convention.
Rather than representing the people that elected him, Romney had made it his sole mission to destroy Donald Trump.
However, the problem for Romney is that many of the people he is supposed to represent love Trump.
That was pretty evident by the reception he received when he took the stage this weekend…
.@UTGOPChair just had to intervene and tell the crowd to show respect.

However, with as much anger as we heard, Romney narrowly avoided censure, with only 711 of the 1509 available votes in favor of censure.

Romney is not back up for re-election until 2024, but it remains difficult to see him being able to garner enough support or change enough minds to win that seat again.
