Ohio GOP may censure own for supporting Trump impeachment


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Republican Party's Central Committee is preparing to decide whether to censure the 10 GOP congressional members who voted in February to impeach former President Donald Trump.

A vote is set for Friday. Seven of the 10 representatives have already been censured or rebuked by local or state parties, while efforts against two others failed.

That leaves Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, of Cleveland.

Former Republican Chair Jane Timken faces criticism from rivals in the GOP primary for U.S. Senate for initially defending and not rebuking Gonzalez.

Timken has since called for his resignation and touted her loyalty to Trump.
