Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, said Sunday the Republican Party will turn to “new faces and new voices” to lead other than former President Donald Trump.
In an interview on CNN’s “The State of the Union,” Romney said the GOP also has to “do a better job” connecting with American workers.
“The party is going to move forward and there will be new faces and new voices,” he insisted. “Perhaps some from the past like [former N.J.] Governor Chris Christie. [Maryland Gov.] Larry Hogan is a new face on the front, [Sen.] Tom Cotton [R-Ark.], [Sen.] Ben Sasse [R-Neb.] I think those individuals will help define the Republican Party as we go forward.”
“I think there has to be a new strain recognized and that is we have to do a better job communicating and creating policies that show we care very deeply about working people in America, and that our policies are designed to help working people,” he added.
“If we do that, I think we’ll be able to retain many people that have come into our party during the term of President Trump and build also on the base of our party that’s been so critical over the years.”
Romney said he believes Trump’s impeachment and upcoming trial are constitutional.
“The preponderance of the legal opinion is that an impeachment trial after someone has left office is constitutional. I believe that’s the case,” he said.
“I believe that what is being alleged and what we saw which is incitement to insurrection is an impeachable offense. If not, what is?” he added.
