Elissa Slotkin is one of 31 House Democrats who represents a district Trump won in 2016. Nearly all of them voted to impeach Trump this week. But Slotkin’s decision is not sitting well with some of her constituents, which  Republicans hope will hurt her in the next election. CQ Roll Call reporter Simone Pathe reports from Slotkin’s district. Then, CQ Roll Call reporter Bridget Bowman, who covered the impeachment vote, joins the podcast to explain what comes next.
