Here’s how Arizona lawmakers voted in the impeachment of President Donald Trump
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - In an unprecedented move, U.S. House Representatives voted 232-197 to impeach President Donald Trump a second time Wednesday, Jan. 13.
President Trump was charged with “incitement of insurrection” over the deadly mob siege of the Capitol in a swift and stunning collapse of his final days in office.
Trump, who was impeached but not convicted in the Senate in December 2019, is the only president to be impeached twice.
Ten Republicans fled Trump, joining Democrats who said he needed to be held accountable and warned ominously of a “clear and present danger” if Congress should leave him unchecked before Democrat Joe Biden’s inauguration Jan. 20.
After a two-hour debate, lawmakers voted “yay” or “nay” to President Trump’s impeachment.
The vote for Arizona lawmakers broke along party lines. We have that vote down below:
- First District: Tom O’Halleran, a Democrat, voted yes.
- Second District: Ann Kirkpatrick, a Democrat, voted yes.
- Third District: Raúl Grijalva, a Democrat, voted yes.
- Fourth District: Paul Gosar, a Republican, voted no.
- Fifth District: Andy Biggs, a Republican, voted no.
- Sixth District: David Schweikert, a Republican, voted no.
- Seventh District: Ruben Gallego, a Democrat, voted yes.
- Eighth District: Debbie Lesko, a Republican, voted no.
- Ninth District: Greg Stanton, a Democrat, voted yes.
