Supporters of President Trump heckled Senator Mitt Romney of Utah while he was traveling to Washington ahead of a joint session of Congress on Wednesday to certify the election victory of President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr., according to video shared online.Mr. Romney is part of the majority of Republican senators who have rejected efforts to overturn the election, a push that recently turned to the joint session of Congress to certify Electoral College results, a typically ceremonial affair.Supporters of Mr. Trump traveled to Washington to attend protests on his behalf on Wednesday, even though the president’s baseless claims of fraud have been rejected by judges across the ideological spectrum, Republican and Democratic state election authorities, and even by Mr. Trump’s own attorney general.In one video that went viral on Tuesday, a person filming with a phone approached Mr. Romney, sitting in the Salt Lake City airport, and asked him why he had not supported Mr. Trump in the election or in his claims of election fraud.
