Democrats in Pro-Trump districts are being pressured by their constituents to oppose articles of impeachment against the president, The Hill reported.

Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Pa., claims Republicans have spent $460K on TV ads telling voters to call his office to oppose impeachment the past two months, according to the report.

"People are calling my office, they're calling the number flashing on the screen and giving voice to their feelings on the subject," Cartwright said, adding "$460,000 in northeastern Pennsylvania is a king's ransom in media."

Two House Democrats had already voted against proceeding to the impeachment inquiry, Rep. Jefferson Van Drew, D-N.J., and Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn.

Van Drew has already said he will vote against articles of impeachment, while Peterson has not stated his intentions, according to The Hill.

"There's rumors going around about everything," Van Drew told The Hill, adding rumors have him even switching parties over this. "I've had so many rumors over the years about all kinds of crazy things. It's not [true]. I'm just doing what I'm doing.

"I'm still a Democrat, right here."

Some vulnerable Democrats have already said they plan to support the articles of impeachment, including freshman Reps. Tom Malinowski, D-N.J., Sharice Davids, D-Kan., and Susan Wild, D-Pa.

"I know some of them, not all of them, have come out publicly" to support articles of impeachment, according to Malinowski, The Hill reported. "I think many of them would prefer to announce any decision in their districts speaking to their constituents than standing here and talking to you guys.

"As I'm sure you can imagine, if you come from a district where opinions are mostly divided on this, that is the right way to do it."
