Mike Lee Defends Romney, Claims “Utah and the Senate are Lucky to Have Him”

Senator Mike Lee (D-UT) came to the defense of fellow Senator Mitt Romney, who is being blasted by Republicans for voting with Democrats along with Susan Collins for impeachment witnesses.

Mike Lee tweeted:

Mitt Romney is a good friend and an excellent Senator. We have disagreed about a lot in this trial. But he has my respect for the thoughtfulness, integrity, and guts he has shown throughout this process. Utah and the Senate are lucky to have him.

Nearly all the responses to Lee are negative towards Romney.

Not happening! is already happening. His vote was nothing but vindictive. are sick of people trying to steal our votes and ignoring our will.

What guts did Romney show by voting against our constitution and siding with democrats……I call BS!

Maybe to you, but to us he’s betrayed us too many times. And he works for us.

Romney got rich by destroying the lives of working Americans. He’s evil.

Utah will never re-elect him. I voted for him. Big regret! He a rhino!
