The Salt Lake Tribune reports:
Sen. Mitt Romney was lustily booed by the more than 2,100 Republican delegates who packed into the Maverik Center on Saturday for the party’s state convention. “Aren’t you embarrassed?” said Romney trying to deflect the chorus of catcalls that greeted him as he took the stage.
“I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues,” said Romney as delegates attempted to shout him down. Accusations that Romney was a “traitor” or “communist” flew from the crowd like so many poison darts.
The cacophony of disapproval only ended after outgoing party chair Derek Brown scolded delegates to “show respect” for Romney.

They booed McCain, 2008 GOP nominee, as he was dying.
Today, they booed Romney. Called him “communist”, “traitor”. He was the GOP nominee!
These folks aren’t Republicans. They’re a damn cult. https://t.co/wB89qmfBcv
