Mitt Romney sure is not making many friends recently.
At least, that is, in the Republican party.
He’s making plenty Democrat friends.
After voting for Witnesses in the Senate trial, Romney has now reportedly been uninvited for CPAC 2020.
The NY Post reported:
It’s CPAC blowback for Sen. Mitt Romney.
The American Conservative Union angrily disinvited the Utah Republican from its annual conference Friday — moments after the former GOP presidential candidate broke ranks with the party to vote with Democrats for more witnesses and documents in President Trump’s impeachment trial.
“The ‘extreme conservative’ and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to CPAC 2020,” tweeted Matt Schlapp, the organization’s president.
The convention, set for late February in Washington, draws thousands of right-wing activists and Republican officials — and has regularly featured Trump as a keynote speaker.
Romney used CPAC as a platform to woo the party’s base as he sought the Republican nomination in 2012, where he labeled himself a “severely conservative governor.”
Romney and Maine Sen. Susan Collins were the only Republicans to vote in favor of additional witnesses Friday, clearing the way for Trump’s probable acquittal on Wednesday.
