HASTINGS, Mich. — The Barry County GOP has censured Rep. Peter Meijer for voting to impeach former President Donald Trump.

"Barry County Republicans were very disappointed by Congressman Meijer’s vote to impeach then-President Trump," said Phillip Joseph, the Deputy Chair and Spokesperson for Barry County GOP. "Our party’s action is a reflection of the sentiment felt by conservatives across Barry County.”

This is the second county in Meijer's district to vote to censure him, after Calhoun County GOP voted to censure him earlier this month.

The one-sentence censure resolution that was adopted by the executive committee is as follows:

“Be it resolved that the Executive Committee of the Barry County Republican Party hereby censures Congressman Peter Meijer for voting to impeach the 45th President of the United States.”
