In March 2023, the Texas GOP voted 57-5 to censure Congressman Tony Gonzales, who currently represents Texas Congressional District 23.
The censure resolution cites, among other things, Gonzales’s support for the “Respect for Marriage Act,” which repealed the “Defense of Marriage Act,” and the “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act,” which was passed in the aftermath of the Uvalde Shooting, as reasons for Gonzales’s censure.
