Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) claimed that Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) has the full support of the Republican caucus to continue as leader.
Anchor Chuck Todd asked whether it was a dealbreaker that McConnell and former President Donald Trump no longer seem to have a working relationship, as Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) seemed to indicate.
“Oh, I think there’s full support for Mitch McConnell,” Romney said. “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.”
But Romney is hardly representative of the Republican caucus, even in the Senate.
He even called the January 6 committee’s actions “appropriate,” which is a very minority opinion among Republicans, even those that don’t necessarily love Trump.
