Seven Senate Republicans joined Democrats in their witch hunt. The whole thing was brought to an end Saturday. Well, these GOP guys will have to answer a few questions.

North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr is the first on our list. The 2022 midterms are almost here. Republicans are already getting ready for the 2024 presidential election. This leaves Burr in a terrible position.

The central committee of the North Carolina Republican Party called a meeting to discuss Burr’s vote to convict Donald Trump. According to The Charlotte Observer, the party is all but certain to censure the senator.

According to Kyshia Lineberger, the North Carolina Republican national committeewoman, Burr “betrayed his constituents.” That’s wrong on so many levels.

“I am going to vote to censure Senator Richard Burr on behalf of the grassroots across the state and because I do truly feel that his vote was improper,” Lineberger told the paper. “I’m really disheartened by his choice and his vote.”

About 30 high-ranking members of the North Carolina Republican Party will have to make a decision. the central committee consists of chairmen and women from each of the 13 congressional districts.

State Republican Chairman Michael Whatley, released a statement on Burr’s vote. According to him, Burr’s vote was pretty “shocking.”

Burr is trying to find an excuse for his vote. Democrats voted to proceed with the impeachment trial, and he thought joining them was the right thing to be done at that point.

The GOP was far from happy with his statement.

“North Carolina Republicans sent Senator Burr to the United States Senate to uphold the Constitution and his vote today to convict in a trial that he declared unconstitutional is shocking and disappointing,” Whatley’s statement said, according to The Observer.

Burr will not be running for re-election in 2022. According to South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara, will succeed Burr in the Senate.

“The biggest winner, I think, of this whole impeachment trial is Lara Trump,” Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“My dear friend Richard Burr — who I like and have been friends to a long time — just made Lara Trump almost the certain nominee for the Senate seat in North Carolina to replace him if she runs, and I’ll certainly be behind her because I think she represents the future of the Republican Party,” he said.

Lara has yet to make a decision on the seat. She was born in Wilmington, North Carolina, and is also a graduatee from North Carolina State University.

We cannot even imagine the expression on Pelosi’s face when she sees another Trump on the ballot again.


Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania joined Burr and Pelosi’s Democrats.

The executive committee of the Louisiana Republican party censured Cassidy as confirmed by The Washington Free Beacon.

Romney’s party in Utah will probably do the same.

The Associated Press reported that Sasse may see similar consequences.

Several county committees censured Toomey. The information was confirmed by KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh. Toomey won’t be seeking re-election in 2022.

Murkowski will not give up without a good fight.

Collins is facing censure vote from her party. Bangor Daily News has the details on her case.

If Republicans want to get more votes in the upcoming elections, they will have to get rid of the bad seeds. The GOP will have to deal with all the Trump haters out there. Pelosi and her Democrats are breaking bones to get to the top.

Voting against Trump is never good, and Liz Cheney knows it best.
