Rep. Anthony González – one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump for inciting the Jan.6 riot on Capitol Hill – will not seek reelection for his seat in Northern Ohio in 2022.

“Since I entered politics, I have always said that I will do this job as long as the voters accept me and it still works for my family,” González said in a statement you tweeted Thursday night. “As Elizabeth and I consider the reality of continuing in public service while juggling the growing responsibilities of parenting our two beautiful children, it is clear that the best path for our family is not to seek reelection next fall.”

He added that, while the family was at the center of his decision, “it is also true that the current state of our politics, especially many of the toxic dynamics within our own party, is a significant factor in my decision.”

A former featured wide receiver at Ohio State University and a first-round NFL draft pick, Gonzalez is the first of the pro-impeachment Republicans in Congress to decide not to run for another term.

Gonzalez, who turns 37 this weekend, was facing a tough primary against Max Miller, a former Trump adviser from the Cleveland area who has the former president’s backing. Trump came to Ohio to campaign for Miller this summer, his first political rally since leaving office.

González had been raising more money than miller and told The New York Times, who was the first to report his decision, who believed he could have won.

“You can fight and win this,” he told the newspaper, “but are you really going to be happy? And the answer is, probably not.”

González was first elected to represent Ohio’s 16th Congressional District in 2018. He had been a reliable Conservative vote in the House, but he was not as close to Trump as the others. When running for the first time for the seat, described Senator Ben Sasse, R-Neb., another Trump critic within the Republican Party, as his political idol.
