Senator Susan Collins Says She’s ‘Appalled’ By Utah Republicans Booing Mitt Romney

Maine Sen. Susan Collins said she was “appalled” when she saw a video of Utah Republicans heckling her colleague Sen. Mitt Romney.

Romney was booed and called a “traitor” and a “communist” by Republicans at their state convention in West Valley City on Saturday.

“I was appalled,” said Collins on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday. “Mitt Romney is an outstanding senator who served his state and his country well.”

Romney was the lone Republican to vote to remove former President Donald Trump from office twice after he was impeached by the House of Representatives.

Romney also narrowly avoided censure by Utah Republicans on Saturday. The proposed resolution failed in a close vote.

“We are not a party of — that is led by just one person. We should remember Ronald Reagan’s admonition to Republicans that the person who agrees with you 70% or 80% of the time is your friend, not your enemy.”
