Can a Republican take on Trump and survive? Mitt Romney is proving it's possible.

BOUNTIFUL, Utah —Since Mitt Romney became the first senator in history to defy his party with a vote to convict in an impeachment trial, he's been called a "disgrace" by President Trump. He's been pilloried as a traitor each night on Fox News. And he's been formally censured by GOP organizations as far away as Louisiana.

Here in Bountiful, a devout and devotedly Republican city in Romney’s home state, voters might be expected to join in. And to an extent, they have.

“I was disappointed,” said Gary Wight, who runs a formalwear shop, Latter Day Suits, across the street from the white-steepled tabernacle that sits at the heart of town. “Senator Romney isn’t doing what we sent him there to do.”

But Wight, a Republican who backed Romney in the last election, was quick to note a caveat: That doesn’t mean he won’t vote for him again.

Formalwear shop, do they sell the magic underwear?

2. Mitt holds his honor, & faith higher than his Party. He also really doesn't neED this job. There's

one more things. Most of his constituents are Mormon, and they also believe it's more important to be honest than be a Republican. None of DT's attacks will work in this situation, and I'm sure if Mitt wants to keep his job, the voters of Utah will vote for him.

4. For those who wonder how this plays out,

well,Willard is a member of what in Utah is known as the Magic Sperm Club. Meaning his blood line is traced to the founders of the Mormon Religion. And a such,is considered untouchable and protected by the Faithful at any cost.
