These 31 House Dems in Districts Won By Trump May Decide the Fate of Impeachment

31 House Democrats in districts won by Trump will have to make a very difficult decision as to whether to vote for impeachment with the party and risk getting voted out in 2020.

It would take roughly 18 House Democrats to vote against impeachment to block the measure.

Per USAToday, Democratic Rep. Jeff Van Drew said Wednesday that he will vote against articles of impeachment that outline the case for President Trump’s removal from office, becoming the first Democrat to publicly say he will not vote with his colleagues.

The DailyCaller contacted all 31 Thursday and did not receive any definitive answers.

Per DC, All Democratic offices that responded had very similar messages, saying they have not yet made a decision and are still weighing out the facts.

These are the 31.

  1. Tom O’Halleran of Arizona
  2. Lucy McBath of Georgia

According to a new report from Politico, a small group of vulnerable Democrats in swing districts is floating the idea of censure instead of impeachment.

While they are unlikely to succeed, as the group has around 10 and they would need roughly 18 votes to block impeachment, their attempt shows a real fear among swing district Democrats that voting for impeachment in a district Trump won could mean losing in 2020.

The lawmakers listed by Politico floating censure include:

Reps. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.)
Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.)
Anthony Brindisi (D-N.Y.)
Ben McAdams (D-Utah.)
