(Columbus) - The Ohio Republican State Central Committee is expected to vote Friday on a resolution from one of its members to censure U.S. Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Rocky River, along with the other nine GOP members of the House who all voted to impeach former president Donald Trump, because of their belief Trump instigated and supported the insurrection at the U.S Capitol building on January 6.
A copy of the resolution obtained by cleveland.com does not call for concrete actions, but in the long run, it could lead to Ohio GOP leaders backing a challenger to Gonzalez in the 2022 election. In fact, former Trump aide Max Miller has already said he will run against Gonzalez in the 2022 Republican Primary.
Of the ten House members who voted to impeach Trump, the best known is Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming. Some Republican members of the House want to have her removed as chair of the House Republican Conference, which is the third-highest ranking post among House GOP members.
