5. True, but...

Peterson, considered one of the most conservative Democrats in Congress, represents a sprawling, agriculture-heavy district in western Minnesota that Trump won by 30 percentage points. Peterson himself won reelection by a 52% to 48% margin in 2018, and faces a stiff challenge from former GOP Lt. Gov. Michelle Fischbach in 2020.

This may not be the greatest Democrat in DC, but he is representing his district and could easily be thrown out next year. Should we insist he commit suicide by endorsing impeachment when his vote may not be needed? The other 10 are pretty much in the same situation. Dem congress critters in red districts are an endangered species and should be protected, not hunted.

Except Tulsi. She changed to pro impeachment for a similar reason-- she is being primaried in a blue district.
