Never-Trump traitor Mitt Romney is still feeling the heat from his vote to convict Donald Trump on one of the Democrats’ articles of impeachment.
Romney is about to find out the worst is yet to come.
And now Mitt Romney got hit with some really bad news about his future.
When Romney voted to convict the President, many pundits believed that because of Romney’s role in saving the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics from disaster after a bribery scandal and Romney’s leadership role in the Mormon Church, Romney was untouchable in Utah.
But that is not the case.
Donald Trump’s approval rating in Utah continues to rise and some polls show it is even higher than Romney’s.
Grassroots conservatives in Utah also have not forgiven Romney.
And the Utah GOP is sitting on resolutions calling on Romney to resign, demanding a recall of the Senator and praising President Trump.
Brandon Beckham – the GOP activist behind the resolution – says it puts the Utah GOP on record noting the state party “strongly disagrees with the vote cast,” and hopes “all Utah elected Republicans to work with President Trump to implement the conservative policies of the America First agenda that are helping our country succeed.”
These resolutions are just the start of the campaign to oust Romney.
Should President Trump win re-election in 2020, it is almost certain Romney would face a pro-Trump challenger when Romney runs for re-election in 2024.
And the President would most likely endorse that candidate.
Trump’s endorsement has proven pivotal in GOP primaries and not even Mitt Romney running for re-election in Utah would be able to survive the President campaigning on behalf of his opponent.
In that event, Romney would slink off into retirement like other Never-Trump traitors Jeff Flake and Bob Corker when it became apparent they would lose a GOP primary to a pro-Trump challenger.
