Donald Trump loves to claim that he has the full support of the Republican Party. While a vast majority of Republicans do support Trump, there are quite a few that don’t. In fact, a Republican advocacy group released an ad on Friday to thank Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) for following his conscience and voting to convict the president.
The ad, made by Republicans for the Rule of Law, will air statewide in Utah on Fox News five times every weekday next week, according to the group’s press release.
“This week, Sen. Mitt Romney stepped up to the challenge and into the history books. No one can watch his Senate speech without appreciating his integrity, his decency, and his sense of duty. He faced enormous pressure from his party, his constituents and even members of his own family,” group spokesman Chris Truax said in the statement.
“Mitt Romney is nobody’s puppet. Whether we agree with all of his conclusions or not, we should all salute Senator Romney for his sincere commitment to the rule of law,” he added.
According to reports, the group will also buy a pair of billboards that will be unveiled Friday in Salt Lake City that read: “This is what a patriot looks like.”
