Very much deserved. Senator Romney was awful to President Trump. Hopefully he will be primaried so he can’t run for a second term.
Sen. @MittRomney was greeted with loud boos and jeers at the Utah GOP convention.

“I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues,” Romney said Saturday as delegates at Utah’s Republican convention shouted their disapproval, with some calling him a “traitor” and a “communist.”
“Aren’t you embarrassed?” Romney asked the crowd at one point.
Romney also touted his Republican credentials and told the crowd that the boos don’t bother him.
“You can boo all you like,” said Romney. “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.”
The jeers finally stopped when the outgoing party chairman urged the delegates to “show respect.”
Romney has drawn the ire of Republicans nationwide over the last few years stemming from his criticism of former President Donald Trump, including a vote to convict him of impeachment in 2020.
Utah’s Republican governor, Spencer Cox, also received some boos as a result of the coronavirus restrictions in his state. GOP Sen. Mike Lee addressed the crowd too and received a warm reception.
