There were no surprises at the Capitol on Wednesday when Rep. Bill Huizenga, R-Zeeland, became one of the 197 Republicans to vote against the articles of impeachment.

Two other Republican members of Congress from Michigan – Fred Upton of St. Joseph and newly elected Peter Meijer of Grand Rapids – gained national headlines this week as they became two of the 10 from their party to vote in favor of President Donald Trump’s impeachment. The House passed the measure 232-197.
