Ohio GOP Rep. Who Voted to Impeach Trump After Jan. 6 Resigns Amid Threats

HeadlineSep 17, 2021

Ohio Republican Congressmember Anthony Gonzalez announced Thursday he won’t run for reelection in 2022. Gonzalez was one of just 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for inciting the January 6 insurrection. After that vote, Gonzalez says he and his family faced threats and had to travel with a security detail. In a statement, Gonzalez said he was leaving Congress in part because of “toxic dynamics inside our own party.”
