Sen. Mitt Romney has incurred wrath, won hearts for his vote to convict Donald Trump

(Francisco Kjolseth | Tribune file photo) Sen. Mitt Romney wraps up a town hall meeting at the Davis County administration building, Tuesday, January 22, 2019, to hear from local residents.

@SenatorRomney’s vote betrays Utah Republicans. It reminds me of a quote from @PierreDelecto himself in 2016 where he called someone a phony, a fraud and played members of the public for suckers. There is an irony to those comments today @realDonaldTrump.”

— Utah governor candidate and former Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes

“Thank you, @SenatorRomney, for your courage and patriotism! Thank you for upholding your oath and defending the Constitution. A grateful majority is with you as will be the judgment of time.”

— Former independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin

“The Utah Republican Party is pleased to see President Trump completely acquitted by the United States Senate. We appreciate the service rendered to our state by Utah’s two senators. As a party, we strongly disagree with the vote cast today by Senator Romney.”

“Senator Romney honored a sacred oath today, and he should be praised for his patriotism and showing the country and the world what it means to be a Utahn.”
