State Level Republicans Voice Heavy Criticism of Votes to Impeach Trump from GOP

The impeachment vote could impact several key political races over the next few years.

President Trump’s second impeachment was an historical one for a few reasons, not the least of which was the bipartisan nature of the vote.  Never before had so many from the alleged’s side of the aisle vote “yes” to the constitutional pock mark.

In Trump’s case, ten total Republicans voted to have him impeached for the second time, this time for “inciting an insurrection”.

Those members of the GOP are now hearing it from their state-level cohorts.

The choice to split from the party’s majority comes with a risk that those members could face political blowback for their votes and lose support altogether from their state’s Republican Party come the next election.

Cheney, the No. 3 in the House Republican leadership as the GOP conference chair, is getting flak from the Wyoming Republican Party and her congressional colleagues.

Members of the House Freedom Caucus circulated a petition Wednesday to force a vote on a resolution calling on Cheney to resign from her post. The resolution states Cheney’s position “has brought the Conference into disrepute and produced discord.”

The Wyoming GOP issued a lengthy statement early Thursday lambasting Cheney. The party alleges it has received harsh comments from its members, saying, “Our telephone has not stopped ringing, our email is filling up, and our website has seen more traffic than at any previous time.”

Oh, and that wasn’t all:

Those comments accused Cheney of aligning herself with “the Beltway elites” and “with leftists.”

The organization said, “We as a Party respect our elected officials and assume that they will respect and represent their constituents. We are receiving the message loud and clear that what happened yesterday is a true travesty for Wyoming and the country.”

There is no telling when, or even if, the single article of impeachment will be handed over to the Senate for trial.
