Utah GOP Has No Plans to Censure Mitt Romney for Trump Impeachment Vote

Joshua Caplan 16 Feb 2021

The Utah Republican Party said Monday that it doesn’t have any plans to censure Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) for his vote to convict former President Donald Trump over last month’s deadly U.S. Capitol riot.

“As a party, we are focused on supporting our elected officials and unifying around those principles that got them elected,” Utah GOP party chairman Derek Brown said in an interview with FOX 13. “At this point, we believe it is crucial to focus on unifying our party, working together to retain those new voters who joined the Republican Party this last year, while bringing back any who may have left.”

Brown’s comments come as hundreds of Utah Republicans have signed an online petition slamming Romney’s impeachment vote, while calling for the senator to be censured.

“Senator Willard Mitt Romney has failed, and continues to fail, to represent the average conservative Utah Republican voter,” reads the petition states, accusing Romney of having “misrepresented himself as a Republican” and “prioritized his personal and political vendetta against President Donald J. Trump ahead of the Constitution of the United States, the interest of We, the People, and the advancement of the Republican Platform.”

“Senator Willard Mitt Romney has condoned false and misleading statements that have led the 117th Congress of the United States to further conduct an illegal and unconstitutional 2nd Impeachment proceeding against President Donald J. Trump,” the petition adds. “Whereas; the Utah Republican Party leadership has failed to issue a censure. Therefore; be it resolved that; We, the undersigned voters, censure Senator Willard Mitt Romney.”
