Another Trump District Dem Gets Excoriated by Constituents at Town Hall: ‘If She Votes For Impeachment, She’s Screwed’

The thirty one House Democrats in largely Trump districts are going to have to do some thinking this weekend.

Do they go with the truth, the facts and their district? Or do they side with their party in the impeachment vote?

 

As my colleague Bonchie reported, most haven’t made up their mind yet and aren’t going on record yet with their decisions.

But some are facing some withering criticism from their districts.

Rep. Kendra Horn (D-OK) felt that anger during a town hall she held on Sunday when constituents called her out for Democrats focusing more on impeachment than on anything else that actually helped Americans. Her district went red and eight Republicans plan to run against her in 2020.

 

 

From Daily Caller:

“As an independent voter, I think you’re in a lot of trouble if you vote for this impeachment,” said Edmond, Oklahoma, resident Susan Jaslow, the Oklahoman reported. Jaslow voted for Horn in 2018, but said she is part of a group of independent voters upset about the impeachment circus.

“If she votes for impeachment, she’s screwed,” Jaslow added.

“We want Congress to get back to work for the American people, please,” said Ronda Peterson, who identified herself as a conservative. Peterson said Congress has been obsessed with impeaching Trump all year.

Horn responded to Peterson by saying, “It’s frustrating for me.” Horn has said she has not made up her mind about impeachment, and her press secretary told the Daily Caller she is “reviewing the articles of impeachment” and “has not announced a decision.”

Horn claimed she didn’t “run to impeach anybody” and her communications director tried to suggest there were other town halls where people were in favor of impeachment. “We’ve heard from constituents on all sides of this issue,” he said.
