Trump was impeached by 10 House Republicans. Two Remain
Voters will decide Tuesday the fate of the last two impeachment-voting House Republicans.
David Valadao of California and Dan Newhouse of Washington are the only two GOP members of the group of 10 who voted to impeach Trump in January 2021 for his behaviour during the Jan. 6 Capitol brawl.
Nonpartisan observers consider Valadao’s contest against Rudy Salas a toss-up. Mr. Newhouse faces farmer and restaurant entrepreneur Doug White in a safe Republican seat.
Four House Republicans lost their primaries and four retired. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, Tom Rice of South Carolina, Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington, and Peter Meijer of Michigan lost early.
Fred Upton, Adam Kinzinger, Anthony Gonzalez, and John Katko all retired.
Midterm elections include abortion in five states.
According to Ballotpedia, 2022 will have the most abortion-related ballot issues ever. Voters in California, Michigan, and Vermont are debating whether to legalise abortion. Kentucky voters will decide if the state’s constitution should prohibit abortion. Montana voters will decide whether to treat babies born alive after an abortion.
Kansas voters rejected a proposed amendment to eliminate abortion protections in August.
Proposition 1 is projected to pass in California, a largely Democratic state, as part of a legislative package to protect abortion access. Legislators put the amendment on the Nov. 8 ballot days after the Supreme Court declared states may decide on abortion.
