New Mexico Democratic Sens. Martin Heinrich and Tom Udall voted to convict President Donald Trump during his impeachment trial Wednesday.
“This is not a process I wanted to be involved in when I first ran for the Senate,” Heinrich said in a phone interview with the Journal. He said he felt “duty bound” to vote for conviction on the impeachment articles, saying he was concerned the president did not understand the restraints put on the office “by the law or the Constitution.”
