UPDATE: Rep. David Valadao avoids censure from state Republicans for voting to impeach Donald Trump


UPDATE (2/22): Rep. Valadao avoided a censure from his state party over the weekend during the California Republican Convention. 

Contra Costa County GOP delegate Erik Elness led the charge on a resolution to censure Valadao over his vote to impeach Donald Trump in January. However, the move was ruled out of order and quickly set aside for other matters on the agenda, such as the effort to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom. 

(2/18): (KGET) — Congressman David Valadao faces a possible censure at the California GOP Convention this weekend for voting to impeach Donald Trump, according to the L.A. Times.

Valadao declined to comment on the matter.

The congressman, who represents the San Joaquin Valley in the 21st Congressional District, is the latest Republican elected official to draw criticism from a state party over disloyalty to the former president. He was one of 10 GOP members in the House of Representatives who voted last month to send the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate.
