Romney Booed at Republican Convention in Utah

Sen Mitt Romney was booed and heckled during his speech at the Utah Republican Party state convention on May 1.

Video by George Bekmezian shows the hostile reception for Romney, as boos ring out, before his supporters respond with applause. Romney is heard saying in response, “I have a few folks that don’t like me.”

According to Fox 13, the Utah Republican Party Chair Derek Brown intervened as the heckling continued. “Show respect,” he said.

The Salt Lake City Tribune reported there was a move to censure Romney for his vote to impeach former President Donald Trump. The motion was defeated narrowly, by 798 votes to 711, the paper said. Credit: George Bekmezian via Storyful
