“Mitt Romney is an outstanding senator who serves his state and our country well,” Collins, a Maine Republican, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”
Romney was booed Saturday at the Utah Republican Party organizing convention and narrowly avoided being censured by his state party for his votes in Trump’s impeachment trials, the latest example of the influence and power the former Republican President still holds over his party as it decides how to move forward in the Biden era. But while Collins wouldn’t say who she voted for in the 2020 election, she made clear the GOP is “not a party that is led by just one person.”
Collins said Sunday that Republicans “don’t want to become like too much of the Democratic Party, which has been taken over by the progressive left,” adding, “We need to have room for a variety of views.”
“The whole thing is ludicrous, quite frankly. It is ludicrous,” McCain told CNN. “And this comes from a state party in Arizona that refused to be audited themselves on votes that were cast within their own party communications.”
“The election is over. Biden won. I know many of them don’t like the outcome, but elections have consequences,” McCain said.
