It did not take long for the Louisiana GOP to make clear how they feel about Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy’s vote to convict President Donald J. Trump in the second impeachment trial.

Hours after Cassidy voted to convict President Trump, the executive committee of the Republican Party of Louisiana unanimously voted to censure him.

The statement was brief — one sentence, short and to the point.

“The Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Louisiana has unanimously voted to censure Sen. Bill Cassidy for his vote cast earlier today to convict former President Donald J. Trump on the impeachment charge,” it said.

Cassidy was one of seven GOP senators to join the Democrats.

For his part, Cassidy’s statement was a 10-second video posted to Twitter:

“Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person,” he said. “I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty.”
