Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is the latest to receive the Profile in Courage award — which was started by the Kennedy family — for his vote to convict former President Donald Trump in Trump’s first impeachment trial.
“I am honored and humbled,“ said Romney about receiving the award. “I also acknowledge that I am one of many, in the Senate, who have shown a great deal of courage.“
But the award, recognizing public figures — many of them politicians deemed to take courageous stands — comes at a time when Romney’s support within the Utah GOP seems to have slipped.
Conservatives speak on Romney’s hypocrisy, not courage.
