Romney, Murkowski And Collins Won’t Attend Republican National Convention

Three of President Donald Trump’s high-profile Republican detractors have confirmed that they will not be attending the Republican National Convention next month in Jacksonville, Florida, with only one of them providing a reason as to why they’re choosing to skip the massive event.

According to The Hill, Romney and Murkowski, both of whom have had political run-ins with the president, failed to say whether or not their absence from the GOP convention is due to pandemic concerns or otherwise.

As far as Collins, one of her aides indicated that the Maine senator never attends conventions when she’s up for re-election.

As we all remember, Romney was the only Republican to cast a vote in favor of Trump’s impeachment last year. Murkowski went against the GOP grain on both the Obamacare repeal issue and perhaps most memorable, her opposition to confirming Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Last month, Murkowski told a group of reporters that she struggles with whether or not to vote for Trump in the upcoming presidential election.

But they’re not the only Republican members of Congress who have announced that they’d be passing on this year’s convention in Florida, with Sen. Chuck Grassley announcing on Monday that he wouldn’t be attending due to a rise in virus cases in the state.

Tennessee Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander, who will be retiring after his term is up, is skipping the convention to provide other delegates a chance to attend who’ve never been before.
