According to Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has the continued support of the Republican caucus. In an interview Sunday, the Utah lawmaker discussed the division in the country the bipartisan efforts in the Senate and Joe Biden.
Despite recent reports of dozens of lawmakers still not accepting Biden’s presidency, Romney feels the majority of Congress have moved on and want to work on meaningful legislation. He also commented on an apparent rift between Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and McConnell over differing approaches to including the former president in future politics.
“Oh, I think there’s full support for Mitch McConnell,” stated the Utah lawmaker. “I haven’t heard anything other than a solid support for his continued leadership. People are always trying to placate Donald Trump. I don’t fall in that camp, of course, but I wouldn’t attribute that as a comment about Mitch McConnell as much as a comment about Donald Trump.”
Our country is sharply divided—and there are still those who believe the lie that the 2020 election was stolen by Democrats. Now imagine the anger and division that would be ignited if Democrats re-write, with no Republican involvement whatsoever, the voting laws in this country. pic.twitter.com/QEMxNhDf8g
