Arizona Rep. Biggs On Short End Of 423-3 Vote Condemning Ethnic Cleansing of Rohingya (READ)

Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs (R-CD5) was one of only 3 Representatives to vote this evening against a resolution condemning the apparent ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya in Burma. The House voted 423-3 for H.Con.Res.90.

Arizona's Politics has reached out to the Congressman's office for an explanation of this seemingly-unusual vote, and will update this article as necessary. (Rep. Biggs was about to appear on Fox News' Hannity program - to talk about the FBI - shortly after the vote, so a delayed response would be understandable.)

Arizona's Politics tries to highlight votes by the Arizona Congressional delegation that cut against the grain. If you become aware of such a vote, please email us at
