TUCSON, Ariz. — The House of Representatives plans to vote on two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump Wednesday evening, but all three members from southern Arizona have already indicated how they'll vote.
Congressman Tom O'Halleran represents Arizona's first Congressional district, which covers Oro Valley, Marana and stretches all the way up to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon along the eastern side of the state.
O'Halleran released a statement last week indicating he'll vote for impeachment, calling it a "somber day." He won reelection in 2018 with 53 percent of the vote.
#AZ01: Today is a somber day for our country. After reviewing all of the facts and evidence, and the final articles, I announced my plan to vote in favor of impeachment because the president abused his power and broke his oath of office.

Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick represents Arizona's second Congressional district, which includes much of the city of Tucson stretches east covering Benson, Bisbee and Douglas.
Kirkpatrick says she plans to vote for impeachment, calling for Congress to "hold the president accountable for his abuse of power and obstruction of Congress." Kirkpatrick won her 2018 election with 54 percent of the vote.
Congressman Raúl Grijalva represents Arizona's third Congressional district, which includes Tucson's east and south sides and stretches west, covering Three Points and Ajo. It also stretches south covering Nogales and north to include part of the Phoenix area.
Grijalva has supported impeachment as far back as 2017, cosponsoring a resolution calling for President Trump's impeachment in November of that year. Grijalva won reelection in 2018 with 63 percent of the vote.
It’s a sad day when the President unapologetically violates his oath of office and jeopardizes our national security.— Raul M. Grijalva (@RepRaulGrijalva) December 10, 2019
Congress is forced to act, and I will support these impeachment articles when they come for a vote to the House floor. https://t.co/QiMnGLzM2O
