Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) announced he's voting to convict President Trump on Wednesday. And his conservative colleagues are fuming. He's not only the first GOP senator to vote to convict Trump. He's also the first senator to vote to convict a president of the same party in an impeachment trial.

One of the first reactions to roll in was from Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), one of the members of Trump's impeachment defense team. He got right to the point and called Romney a "sore loser."

The RNC, particularly RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel, Romney's niece, was disappointed.

In an interview with Fox News's Chris Wallace, Romney was the first to admit that it's going to be awfully "lonely" in the Senate from now on after he decided to break ranks. He had previously voted to hear from additional witnesses. 

 “Corrupting an election to keep oneself in office is perhaps the most abusive and destructive violation of one’s oath of office that I can imagine,” Romney said of Trump's actions, before deeming him "guilty." 

Meanwhile, the likes of David Axelrod, Joe Scarborough and the Democratic Coalition are applauding Romney for his "integrity."
