Yuma's Representatives split on vote
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KYMA, KSWT, KECY) - The Congressmen who represent Yuma County in Washington, D.C. wasted no time reacting to Wednesday's impeachment vote on social media.
Republican Representative Paul Gosar, whose district includes northern Yuma County is an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump. He voiced criticism for his Democratic colleagues in the moments following the historic vote.
Representative Raul Grijalva's district includes southern Yuma County. The Democratic Congressman has long supported impeachment. Grijalva says he considers Wednesday's vote a grave responsibility.
It is a somber day to impeach a President, but his reckless actions and brazen corruption left us with no other choice.— Raul M. Grijalva (@RepRaulGrijalva) December 19, 2019
I based my decision on the facts and voted to protect our democracy for future generations.
I hope my colleagues in the Senate will do the same. https://t.co/Vdwkq2Wz01
Arizona Senator Martha McSally, a Republican, says she hasn't seen any evidence that leads her to believe Trump should be removed from office. Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema tells us she's reserving judgment until she's seem the evidence presented during the Senate trial.
