A report from The Hill says Romney expressed his support to reporters when asked how he would vote if Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) started a debate on the bill. Sixty votes would be needed to defeat a filibuster.
“I would support the bill,” Romney told reporters.
Romney was not asked how he would vote on the final passage of the House bill, which would just need a simple majority, according to The Hill.
The measure would create a 10-member commission — with five members appointed by each party — to investigate the Capitol riot.
Romney twice voted to convict former President Donald Trump in his impeachment trials. While the Utah GOP stated they would not censure Romney for his most recent vote, Republicans in Weber and Washington counties have voted in favor of censure. The Midvale City Council, unlike Weber and Washington counties, commended Romney for his impeachment vote.
There is no word yet on when the bill to create a commission to probe the Jan. 6 attack will be brought up in the Senate.
