U.S. House of Representatives
Connolly ran for and won election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2008 amidst a massive blue wave, defeating Republican opponent Keith Fimian by over ten percentage points. Aside from his 2010 election fight, Connolly won his re-elections handily.
Connolly supported and voted in favor of the sham articles of impeachment against President Trump. This was despite the fact that in early June 2018, he warned against trying to impeach Trump over concerns of potential voter backlash.
