GOP chair lashes out after impeachment: We did not elect Pat Toomey 'to do the right thing'

Republican Party committees continue to lash out at Republicans who voted to convict Donald Trump for inciting the January 6th insurrection by his supporters.

"Pennsylvania Republicans are heaping condemnation on Sen. Pat Toomey after their GOP senator voted to convict Donald Trump in his impeachment trial, signaling how fealty to the former president has come to define the party," the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Monday. "Republican state party chairman Lawrence Tabas has advised committee members that he will soon call a meeting to 'address and consider actions related to the impeachment vote.' Though the notice didn't specifically mention Toomey, four party insiders said Monday that there's growing momentum behind a push to censure the senator."

Washington County GOP Chair Dave Ball went even further during an interview with KDKA-TV.

"We did not send him there to vote his conscience. We did not send him there to do the right thing or whatever he said," Ball argued.
