House Republicans Who Voted to Impeach Trump Face Avalanche of Primary Challenges
RINO Republicans now under pressure from challengers
Nine out of ten House Republicans who voted for president Donald Trump's impeachment over the January 6 riot have now drawn primary challenges from America First candidates.
Those now under pressure from GOP primary challengers are:
- Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY)
- Tom Rice (R-SC)
- Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA)
- Adam Kinzinger (R-IL)
- Dan Newhouse (R-WA)
- Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH)
- Fred Upton (R-MI)
- Peter Meijer (R-MI)
- David Valadao (R-CA)
The only Republican who backed Trump's impeachment that is yet too draw an America First challenger is Rep. John Katko (R-NY).
Katko worked with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to approve a commission to study the events of January 6.
The commission failed in the Senate.
Trump met with Rep. Jim Banks (R-ID) on Thursday to devise a path to regain the House.
“We believe we take back the majority by focusing on the Trump agenda, and President Trump plays a big role in that,” Banks said after the meeting.
“He’s obviously planning to go out and hit the road and campaign for candidates who share our vision, and we were excited to talk to him about that.”
"We talked for most of the time about the work that the Republican Study Committee is doing to define the agenda for the future course of the Republican Party, which is fighting for the Trump agenda."
“We spent nearly two hours with the President with President Trump, who’s in great spirits,” Banks said.
American First Republicans will have a good chance of winning their general election in November of 2022.
“The former president is now a private citizen, and it appears our justice system is handling whatever potential misdeeds he may or may not have committed,” explained Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL).
Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-PA) stated she is “focused on substantive issues. Not just retribution for a failed, corrupt president.”
“I’ve never been obsessed with going after former President Trump,” she continued.
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spokesperson Chris Taylor highlighted the Democrat strategy.
“In our campaigns, we’re going to tell voters what we’ve accomplished and what we’re fighting for,” he said.
