North Carolina’s GOP is the latest to censure their senator for voting to convict Trump. Senator Burr was one of the seven Republicans who voted to convict.

North Carolina’s GOP chairman says that Burr has been a reliable senator for 20 years, but he thinks it’s important to send a message that North Carolina Republicans disagree with him on Trump’s impeachment.

Senator Burr is retiring at the end of his term. With his seat up for grabs, some have suggested Lara Trump would take that spot easily.
