Skip to comments.Mitt Romney 'formally not invited' to CPAC after impeachment vote on witnesses

The chairman of CPAC announced that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is "formally not invited" to the conservative group's annual conference this year.
Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union, said Romney is not allowed at the event after the Utah Republican voted in favor of summoning witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. Romney was one of two Republicans who joined 47 Democrats in supporting the motion, which failed to pass on Friday.
"BREAKING: The 'extreme conservative' and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020," Schlapp wrote in a tweet, which featured a photo of a troubled-looking Romney.

Matt Schlapp (@mschlapp) January 31, 2020 It is unclear whether Romney was expecting to attend this year's CPAC next month.
Romney recently slammed Trump's critical statements about former national security adviser John Bolton, whom Democratic House impeachment managers have fought to have as a witness. Bolton announced earlier this month he would testify if subpoenaed, and excerpts of his unpublished book have leaked to the press in recent days containing allegations of Trump pressuring Ukraine to help collect information on his political rivals.
He has made a career of trashing people by tweet, Romney told the New York Times. It is part of his shtick, and its working for him."
This CPAC news comes after Utah state Republican Rep. Tim Quinn introduced a bill that would allow voters to recall a sitting U.S. senator. Quinn, 56, claimed the bill was unrelated to Romney but said it was a good mechanism in place to make any senator, current or future, a little more accountable to those who elected him...

One rather scornful media guy described Clint Eastwood’s appearance at the GOP convention 2012 with his empty chair representing Obama as his “schtick.”

Romney should “Formally” be “not invited back to Utah. He’s an egotistical, pissed off little man who will sell out anyone, including his country, to become “someone”.
He blew it after doing a good job on running the Olympics in the US many decades ago. After that, it was “The Me Only” Club.
You’d think he was a Democrat the way he behaves. Maybe he is sympatico, or just plain power-mad, or both.
A 72-year-old man cannot afford to be so naive ... or so incredibly stupid!
Romney is human debris. Garbage. Sewer slime. I was so blinded in my desire to see Obama lose in 2012 I was just as blinded to what a piece of excrement lowlife scum this man is. So happy Trump invited him to dinner and then trashed him.
Great going Matt Schlapp.
After what the Dems have been fielding, maybe Romney has concluded he has a better chance of being POTUS and planet god, by running in the Demon Party.
Oh my! Every time Rove comes on Fox, I just shake my head.
MITT!!! Come out of the closet, Mitt!
I think it's an uphill battle for a traditional politician to win the Repub nomination...and Pence is nothing if not a traditional politician.
True that. Just watched the roll call vote . What was up with Mr Blumenthal not voting when called the first time?
Live vote starts shortly after time stamp 5:07:01
The endorsement turned into serious jealousy. And into defense mode once his family got outted as being corrupt.
This incident right here is why Romney is behaving this way.
He thinks Trump was stringing him along about SOS and making of fool of him.
(yeah, we thought so too)
He did so good the first time.
Romney killed his political career tonight. He doesn’t realize how many outright enemies he made. All of us won’t just turn up our nose at him anymore... oh no. From now on every time anyone says his name every politically savvy conservative will say “That traitor to the party who tried to screw Trump during the Schiff show impeachment trial.”
That’s not something you EVER escape.
My opinion is he was desperate to drag this out because HE has skeletons in the corruption department too. Who knows, maybe it has something to do with Cofer Black who was the former CIA official and foreign policy adviser that was on Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign? That guy ended up on the board of... BURISMA.
