Neither of Utah’s GOP senators voted for Trump.
Sen. Mike Lee has been a defender of the president while Sen. Mitt Romney has stood alone among his Republican colleagues in saying he was at first “troubled” then “appalled” by the allegations that Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine in exchange for investigating Biden.
“Voters aren’t one-dimensional and they have two senators. So they want to make sure that between the two of them, they get represented on all the dimensions that they care about,” said Wendy Schiller, a Brown University political science professor and author of “Partners and Rivals: Representation in U.S. Senate Delegations.” “If they’re big Trump supporters, and that’s the most important thing to them, they want at least one of their senators to be supporting Trump vigorously.”
