A crowd of more than 2,000 GOP delegates booed “traitor” and "communist" Mitt Romney on Saturday, May 1 as the Utah senator addressed his party’s 2021 state convention, where a censure over his two impeachment votes narrowly failed to pass.

“Aren’t you embarrassed?” Romney stated as he was greeted with derogatory words when he took the stage at the Maverik Center in West Valley City. “I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues,” said Romney, who was reminded by the crowd that he was the only Republican senator who voted to convict former President Donald Trump in his first impeachment, and one of seven to vote to convict him in the second impeachment following the January 6, 2021 Capitol insurrection. Delegates tried to shout Romney down, calling him a “traitor” and “communist.”
