Three weeks ago, Utah lawmakers were talking about scolding Sen. Mitt Romney for his vote to convict President Donald Trump of wrongdoing.

They spoke with him in tense, closed-door meetings and called his conduct during the impeachment trial “heartbreaking.”

Those signs of strain had all but disappeared when Romney returned to the state Capitol on Friday. In fact, over the course of his 20-minute visit with the House GOP caucus, his vote on impeachment wasn’t even mentioned.

Outside the capitol, Mormon Women for an Ethical Government, Alliance for a Better Utah and several other groups held their rally honoring Romney for “courage displayed throughout the presidential impeachment process.”
