There is a price to be paid for opposing President Donald Trump, some Republicans are finding out the hard way. Nine out of the ten Representatives who voted to impeach the president following the January 6 invasion of the Capitol Building will face Make America Great Again challengers for their seats in the primaries.
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), and David Valadao (R-CA) are all under pressure from GOP primary challengers.
With all luck, the tenth of the group will face some sort of challenge, but in the meantime, Americans wanting the federal government to put THEIR needs ahead of the rest of the world are cheering on the challengers who share a vision with President Trump for the nation.
The Republican primary battles with pro-Trump candidates come as Trump met with Rep. Jim Banks (R-ID) Thursday to plot a path forward 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.”
There are several vulnerable Democrats also up for re-election that year, and if the entire effort is done correctly, taking back the House of Representatives will not be nearly as difficult as getting the 2020 general election audited in a number of states.
