“I don’t believe I’m leading a wing of the party. Because there’s no wing that’s very large that is aligned with me,” Romney said in an interview this week after a two-week recess.
“Since I’ve been back, I have not spoken with a single senator about the impeachment process or about the implications of the process that’s going on or how I would vote,” he added…
“There are many young people who might tend to think that the Republican Party is only represented by one point of view, the president’s point of view, were there not people like myself,” Romney said. “We are not a pup tent… rather a much larger tent. And we can accommodate different people with different views.”
Yet today’s party is not a forum for free-flowing debate about Trump. He’s still popular with the conservative base, and as the GOP looks to defend its narrow Senate majority, most Republicans are riding with the president.
