Anti-Trump Republican group defends "patriot" Romney after attacks

An ad and billboard by Republicans for the Rule of Law, led by conservative commentator Bill Kristol, thanks Romney for voting to convict Trump during the impeachment trial…

The ad will run on Fox News in Utah next week. The two billboards will appear in Salt Lake City and feature an image of Romney with the phrase “This is what a patriot looks like.”

The same organization recently ran a series of ads calling on Republicans to stand up to Trump during the impeachment process. In the end, Romney was the sole Republican to vote to convict, citing his oath and his faith in his speech explaining the decision.
