Former Massachusetts governor and current Utah Senator Mitt Romney made waves Wednesday when he broke with his Republican colleagues to vote for President Trump’s conviction in the impeachment trial. Meanwhile, Bill Weld, a rare fellow Republican rebel, continued his primary challenge against Trump, although he only gained one delegate to the president’s 38 in Iowa. On the other side of the aisle, presidential candidate and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren reportedly shifted her campaign strategy following an apparently disappointing showing in the Iowa caucus, while former Governor Deval Patrick focused on campaigning in New Hampshire ahead of that state’s primary next week. To discuss, Jim Braude was joined by Charles Chieppo, senior fellow at the Pioneer Institute; Paige Scott Reed, former general counsel for the Department of Transportation under Gov. Patrick; and Joan Vennochi, columnist for The Boston Globe.
