After being censured for a second time by a Utah County’s Republican Party Committee, Senator Mitt Romney appeared unfazed as he tweeted out support for another member of his party who is under fire, U.S. House Rep Liz Cheney.
Cheney is in danger of losing her position as the third-highest ranking Republican member in the House, in a vote scheduled to take place tomorrow.
Romney claimed about the situation, “Expelling Liz Cheney from leadership won’t gain the GOP one additional voter, but it will cost us quite a few.”

Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany weighed in on Romney’s comments in a tweet of her own, completely refuting his assertion.
McEnany began by explaining what he said, “Romney says: ‘Expelling Liz Cheney will drive away voters.'”
“This just simply isn’t the case. Republican leadership should reflect Republican voters,” McEnany explained.
McEnany added, “Straying from that concept will UNDOUBTEDLY hemorrhage Republican voters. Exact opposite of Romney’s statement is true.”

This just simply isn't the case.

Exact opposite of Romney's statement is true.

Trump applauded the censure of Romney in a statement posted on his “From the Desk of Donald Trump” website, where he referenced the booing that Romney received at the Utah GOP convention.
Trump said, “After being loudly booed at the Utah Republican Party Convention, Utah’s Weber County censured RINO Mitt Romney in the strongest of terms.”
“Washington County Republicans also censured Romney in April,” Trump added and exclaimed, “He is BAD NEWS for our Country!”
