Anti-Trump Republican Adam Kinzinger Decides Not To Run For Reelection

Adam Kinzinger, the anti-Trump Republican who teamed up with Liz Cheney and the Democrats to trash Trump and his supporters, has decided not to seek reelection.

Of course, this could have something to do with the fact that Democrats are planning to redraw his district, basically making it impossible for him to be reelected.

Or perhaps he has already received a job offer from CNN or MSNBC.

Kinzinger retiring from Congress, vows ‘broader fight nationwide’ against Trumpism

Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, one of the most prominent critics of former President Donald Trump in the House Republican Conference, announced Friday he won’t seek reelection next year.

Kinzinger is one of 10 House Republicans to vote to impeach the then-president in January after the riot at the Capitol and his announcement marks the second member of that group to say he will retire from Congress, joining Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio.

His decision, revealed in a nearly five-minute direct-to-camera video, came just hours after the Illinois state legislature passed a new congressional map that drew Kinzinger into the same district with another GOP incumbent, Rep. Darin LaHood, setting up a would-be primary matchup between Kinzinger and LaHood, a more reliable Trump ally in the House.

“There’s little to no desire to bridge our differences, and unity is no longer a word we use,” Kinzinger said. “It has also become increasingly obvious that in order to break the narrative, I cannot focus on both a reelection to Congress and a broader fight nationwide.”
