U.S. Rep. Harry Mitchell said he has received death threats and his family has been harassed after he voted in favor of the health care overhaul bill.
Mitchell is one of a group of at least 10 lawmakers that House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland said had been targeted with threats.
The Democrat represents a Republican-leaning congressional district that includes Scottsdale, Tempe, Fountain Hills and parts of Mesa and Phoenix.
Mitchell's spokesman Adam Bozzi said in a statement the congressman received physical threats, including threats on his life, both before and after a vote on health care reform.
Bozzi said Mitchell's wife has been harassed at their Tempe home and his son, Tempe City Councilman Mark Mitchell, also received "menacing calls."
Mitchell described constituent reaction to his vote as "mixed."
