SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Republican Utah Gov. Gary Herbert says he does not support a state lawmaker's push to censure U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney over his vote to convict in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial.

Herbert said in a statement Friday Romney voted in accordance with his conscience after hearing all the evidence and his decision does not warrant censure.

The position signals a roadblock for the effort to rebuke Romney amid a wave of Republican anger directed at the party's former presidential nominee.

Legislative leaders have said a separate effort to create a way to recall a U.S. Senator would likely be unconstitutional.

  1. Romney is as phony as a $3 bill. And, so is his wife.
    Romney lost me during his Presidential campaign when his wife had the audacity to say that her sons serving Mormon missions was service similar to a stint in the Armed Forces. Pure idiocy. Go drink a chocolate milk!
