The U.S. House voted 332-95 late Wednesday afternoon against a proposal to begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, with a majority of Democrats joining all Republicans in the vote.
All five voted in favor of moving forward with impeachment on Wednesday. All five represent Democratic-friendly districts. Dean, for instance, won in 2018 by 27 percentage points. Scanlon, Boyle and Evans won by bigger margins, and Doyle didn’t face a challenger.
Pennsylvania’s other four Democratic House members helped shut down the impeachment movement. They are Susan Wild of the Lehigh Valley, Matt Cartwright of northeastern Pennsylvania, Conor Lamb of southwestern Pennsylvania, and Chrissy Houlahan of Chester County.
