Pennsylvania Republican Party Plans Meeting to Discuss Possible Censure of Never-Trumper Pat Toomey over Impeachment Vote


On Saturday Senator Pat Toomey from Pennsylvania was one of seven Republicans to vote to impeach private citizen Donald Trump.

Already the Pennsylvania Republican Party is looking to censure the Never-Trump senator.

The Pennsylvania Republican Party shared their disappointment with Senator Toomey on Saturday night.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported:

Pennsylvania Republicans are heaping condemnation on Sen. Pat Toomey after their GOP senator voted to convict Donald Trump in his impeachment trial, signaling how fealty to the former president has come to define the party.

Republican state party chairman Lawrence Tabas has advised committee members that he will soon call a meeting to “address and consider actions related to the impeachment vote.” Though the notice didn’t specifically mention Toomey, four party insiders said Monday that there’s growing momentum behind a push to censure the senator.

County parties across the state are already doing so.

“The York County Republican Committee condemns, in the strongest terms, the actions of United States Senator Patrick Joseph Toomey, Jr. for his failure to defend the Constitution and the freedoms it guarantees,” read one censure resolution, passed Saturday before Toomey even voted to convict Trump.
