Biography

Rep. Trey Hollingsworth represents Indiana’s 9th congressional district.

Rep. Hollingsworth joined other House Republicans in signing onto the failed Texas amicus brief that attempted to overturn the results of the presidential election. 

While Rep. Hollingsworth did not object to the counting of the electoral college votes, he was not direct with his constituents about the results of the presidential election. Instead of being honest with his constituents and acknowledging that any claims of voter fraud and voter irregularities were untrue, Rep. Hollingsworth remained silent.

Additionally, Rep. Hollingsworth did not want to hold President Trump accountable for his role in the Jan. 6 insurrection on our United States Capitol building and was not in favor of impeachment.

Rep. Hollingsworth voted in support of the bipartisan commission proposal to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection.
