BOSTON (AP) — Some Massachusetts Republicans are seeking to censure Gov. Charlie Baker for supporting a second impeachment of former President Donald Trump.

The Boston Herald reports that Geoff Diehl, the former co-chair of Trump’s campaign in Massachusetts, wants the Republican governor to retract his stance.

Republican Adam Lange said the state GOP needs to unite but Baker is causing division.

Baker’s office didn’t respond Wednesday, but he has said he supports a second impeachment because former Vice President Mike Pence declined to invoke the 25th Amendment.

The Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, which followed a Trump rally, left five dead.
