Anthony Gonzalez, an Ohio Republican Congressman who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump, announced he would be retiring at the conclusion of his current term in Thursday, in a victory for Republicans challenging the Never Trump movement’s foothold in the party.
Gonzalez had faced a strenuous primary challenge from Marine Corps veteran and former Trump administration official Max Miller. With his base of support among Donald Trump supporters eroded by his impeachment vote, Gonzalez announced his retirement on Twitter on Thursday night.
