“It’s awfully easy to sit in the stands and be critical of the people on the field,” Perdue told reporters Tuesday when asked about Romney’s critical statements and speeches about Trump and his policy decisions.

Perdue also bristled at the idea that Romney is giving voice to feelings that other GOP lawmakers share but are afraid to acknowledge because they don’t want to get smacked down by Trump on Twitter.

“We’re all quite capable of having a voice,” Perdue said, dismissing the idea that Romney’s critiques might embolden other GOP senators to speak out. “No, I don’t see that as encouraging or discouraging anybody.”
