North Carolina GOP Censures Sen. Richard Burr Over Impeachment Vote


The North Carolina Republican Party voted to censure Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) on Monday for his vote to convict former President Donald Trump during his impeachment and bar him from holding office again.

State Republican Party officials met in an emergency session on Monday night and voted unanimously to censure Burr, 65, who plans to retire in 2022 rather than run for reelection. Burr voted on Saturday to find Trump guilty of inciting the Jan. 6 riot that resulted in hundreds of pro-Trump protesters storming the Capitol to disrupt the certification of the 2020 election.

“It’s important for the party to go ahead and put out a vote and a statement that it disagrees with Senator Burr’s vote, but in terms of practical impacts, it is just that. It’s a resolution,” North Carolina state party chairman Michael Whatley said, according to NBC News.
