Republican Mitt Romney reveals he DIDN'T vote for party leader Trump as Susan Collins refuses to say who she'll back

Republican Mitt Romney has revealed he has already voted in the November 3 election – and not for his party leader Donald Trump.

Fellow GOP senator Susan Collins also refused to say who she would be backing as members of the party broke ranks with the president.


“I did not vote for President Trump,” Utah senator Romney told CNN. He did not say whom he did vote for.

It was the latest chapter in the bitter history between the two men, who represent two wings of the modern Republican Party.

Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, has said publicly that the New York real estate magnate is unfit for the presidency.

In 2016, Romney wrote in the name of his wife, Ann, rather than vote for Donald Trump, the GOP presidential nominee.

Then, President-elect Trump appeared to court Romney for secretary of state, culminating in a now-famous photo of the two eating dinner in New York. Trump later said he was trying to humiliate Romney, and the Cabinet post instead went to ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson.

In the Senate, Romney was the lone Republican to vote for Trump’s impeachment earlier this year.

Romney's shock announcement turned heads on who other senators had voted for.

On Thursday, Republican Senator Susan Collins refused to tell CNN if she is backing Donald Trump in the election.

She also declined to say whether she voted in her home state of Maine and whether or not she voted to re-elect the president.
