“Tom Rice is a man of principle, a man of conviction, and a leader who always puts South Carolina’s interests first,” Mr. Ryan said. “He is a legislative workhorse with a long track record of supporting policies that grow the economy, rein in out-of-control spending and expand opportunities for families and businesses.”
Tom Rice was censured by the South Carolina GOP over his vote to impeach Trump.
The South Carolina GOP formally censured Rep. Tom Rice over his Trump impeachment vote.
“We made our disappointment clear the night of the impeachment vote. Trying to impeach a president, with a week left in his term, is never legitimate and is nothing more than a political kick on the way out the door,” South Carolina GOP Chairman Drew McKissick said in a statement Saturday afternoon.
“Congressman Rice’s vote unfortunately played right into the Democrats’ game, and the people in his district, and ultimately our State Executive Committee, wanted him to know they wholeheartedly disagree with his decision.”
