North Carolina is a Purple State with a reddish hue. Its congressional delegation, predictably, remains split on #Impeachment2. The 5 @NCDemParty members will vote YEA: @GKButterfield, @RepDavidEPrice, @RepAdams @DeborahRossNC, @KathyManningNC. @ABC11_WTVD #ncpol #CapitolRiots
The eight @NCGOP members - all of whom voted to challenge the #ElectoralCollege votes & @Transition46’s victory - appear likely to all vote NAY on #Impeachment2. They all condemn riot (& some blame Trump), none will defect. @ABC @ABCPolitics @ABC11_WTVD @rickklein @jonkarl #ncpol
