Current Senator and former GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was mercilessly booed during his appearance at his own state’s GOP convention on Saturday.
Romney had faced intense criticism and even calls for his censure by his own state’s GOP over his decision to vote to remove former President Trump from office.
As Fox News reports:
“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 as the crowd threw insults at him including “communist” and “traitor,” first reported The Salt Lake Tribune.
“You can boo all you like,” Romney said. “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.”
But despite the negative reaction the longtime Utah Republican ended his speech on a positive note.
“We need to come together in strength and unity,” he said.
