HARRISBURG (AP) – A Wednesday night meeting is scheduled with PA Republican Party committee members to decide whether to censure U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey amid a GOP backlash over his vote to convict Donald Trump during the former president’s second impeachment trial. State Party Chairman Lawrence Tabas emailed committee members to schedule the meeting. He emailed them on Feb. 13, moments after the Senate vote, telling them to expect a meeting. A censure vote is a symbolic gesture that may have no real effect on Toomey since he is not seeking reelection next year. Toomey was one of seven Republicans who voted to convict Trump.
