Anthony Gonzalez, House Republican who voted to impeach Trump, will not seek reelection in Ohio

Wa Ex –

Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, will not seek reelection in 2022.

Gonzalez, who was a wide receiver at Ohio State and a first-round draft pick of the Indianapolis Colts, told the New York Times on Thursday that his decision to end his congressional career after two terms was primarily due to the challenges of living in both Washington, D.C., and Cleveland, Ohio.

But he acknowledged he would have faced a “brutally hard primary” and called Trump “a cancer for the country.”

In February, Trump endorsed Max Miller , his former White House adviser, in his primary bid for Gonzalez’s seat — the former president’s first of many revenge endorsements of those challenging his Republican foes. more

SNIP: I happen to know that Gonzalez has been bombarded, daily, with angry phone calls and emails from his constituents. He finally gave up.

  3. His decision came after he realized that there was not a snowball’s chance in Hell that he would get re-elected. Since his campaign contributions all but dried up, he realized that he would have to spend his own money in a losing cause, and since he was a relative newcomer he was not yet in on the graft.
