SALT LAKE CITY — Today, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) used Twitter to explain why he voted not to confirm New Mexico Representative Deb Haaland as Interior secretary.

In his tweet, Romney said he was able to discuss issues with Haaland that are important to Utah.

But, Romney tweeted, the reason he was not able to support her confirmation is that it came down to her record and her support for the Green New Deal.

 

The Senate confirmed Haaland today with a 51-40 vote.
