[Ed. – If you guessed this was at an event held in the academic world, you were right.]
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) received a standing ovation in Denver on Friday night over his vote to convict President Trump for abuse of power. …
The discussion held at the university’s [University of Denver] School of International Studies was hosted by the Alliance of Democracies Foundation, a nonprofit established by Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the former prime minister of Denmark.
Rasmussen opened the discussion by praising Romney. “I am so honored to be onstage with what I would say is a true profile in courage,” Rasmussen said, prompting a standing ovation from the group of nearly 300 people in the university’s auditorium, the Post reported.
“There are a couple of times I have said things or taken positions that were more expedient than they were based upon conviction. I remember those things precisely, and I regret them enormously,” Romney said. “Years, decades later, and I’m not going to do that anymore.”
