Philadelphia Inquirer/Washington Post: Allies of Rep. Adam Kinzinger launch new super PAC to support Republicans who have bucked Trump
Allies of Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., are launching a new super PAC to collect large sums of money to support Republicans willing to buck former president Donald Trump, the latest sign of the party’s deepening internecine war.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, one of the most outspoken critics of former President Donald Trump within the Republican party, has drawn a GOP primary challenger ahead of the 2022 midterm election.
Former Trump Advisor Catalina Lauf announced on Tuesday via Twitter that she plans to challenge fellow Republican Adam Kinzinger for Illinois’s 16th congressional district seat.
Over the weekend, U.S. Rep. Kinzinger announced he formed a PAC via a slick video that is somewhere between an infomercial and a campaign ad. In his story, the Tribune’s Rick Pearson writes that Kinzinger’s “‘country first’ movement seeks like-minded supporters to ‘take back our party’ and to ‘unplug the outrage machine, reject the politics of personality and cast aside the conspiracy theories and the rage.’” Read Pearson’s full story here.
Under fire by many in his own party for his vote to impeach then-President Trump, Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois is fighting to "take back" the GOP.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), one of 10 Republicans to vote to impeach Donald Trump earlier this month, has launched a new political action committee that is designed to become a financial engine to challenge the former president’s wing of the GOP caucus and stand up against a leadership team still aligned with him.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger on Sunday offered a glimpse of what it’s like being one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump: Friends and family turned against him, and he was told he’s “Possessed by the devil.”
