(Harrisburg) — Another U.S. House Democrat from Pennsylvania has come out in support of the two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump that were scheduled for a full House vote on Wednesday.

Four-term Rep. Matt Cartwright of northeastern Pennsylvania revealed his decision Monday.

Trump won Cartwright’s district in 2016 over Democrat Hillary Clinton. That’s made Cartwright a target of Republicans. Pennsylvania’s Eighth Congressional District includes all of Wayne, Pike, and Lackawanna counties, along with portions of Luzerne and Monroe counties.

Eight of nine Pennsylvania Democrats in the House now support the articles of impeachment.  One Democrat, freshman Rep. Chrissy Houlahan of suburban Philadelphia, hasn’t revealed a decision.

All nine Republican House members from Pennsylvania have said they will vote against the articles.
