HARRISBURG (AP) – A PA Republican Party meeting to discuss whether to censure U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey recessed without resolution after roughly five hours because of technical difficulties in counting votes. Committee members on the video call said Wednesday night’s meeting involved the question of whether to censure Toomey, or to express disappointment and disagreement with Toomey’s vote to convict former President Trump. Toomey appeared on the meeting to defend himself, as did U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly. State party brass have remained silent publicly about the meeting, and did not release a date to continue it. A censure vote is a symbolic gesture as Toomey announced that he won’t run again for office.
