Rowdy Utah GOP convention: Romney booed, party elections all upsets
Mitt Romney explains his impeachment vote, Feb 2020. CBS News video

[Ed. – The Utah GOP has been more generally known for its staid, predictable character, so this is interesting.  It’s not that surprising that Romney would be vigorously booed; that’s easy to do.  They didn’t manage to censure him, though the vote was close.  But actually electing a maverick slate of new officers is news.]

The Utah GOP convention was thrust into the spotlight on Saturday where Mitt Romney, now a sitting senator representing the state, took to the stage earlier today to make remarks. Boy was he met with boos, and heckling for it. A vote also later took place whether or not to censure Sen. Romney for his vote to convict former President Donald Trump during both of his impeachment trials. While it failed, at least the boos during his speech were still fun to watch. …

The man also actually engaged with hecklers, asking “aren’t you embarrassed?” No, Sen. Romney, something tells me they are not “embarrassed.” …

As for the “upset leadership election,” Carson Jorgensen, a sheep rancher by profession, was elected as chairman.
