You may remember Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger from his tearful testimony about January 6th.
He was all too happy to join Liz Cheney in participating in the Democrats’ show trial.
Democrats are now paying him back by erasing his district in Illinois through redistricting. He gave the Democrats exactly what they wanted and they burned him anyway. Who could have predicted such a thing?
How screwed is Adam Kinzinger?
Former President Donald Trump would love to take down Adam Kinzinger, one of his chief House GOP antagonists, in next year’s midterms. But Democrats might beat him to it.
Illinois lawmakers are on the verge of rolling out a new congressional map that will very likely gut Kinzinger’s exurban Chicago seat, according to several sources close to the redistricting process, leaving him with just a few bleak options for remaining in office next year.
The elimination of his district would force the veteran Republican congressman to choose between running in unfamiliar territory, possibly against another incumbent, or making a long shot run for governor or Senate in a blue state — and that assumes Kinzinger could prevail in a GOP primary after spending the last year criticizing a former president who remains beloved by the base.
“Adam, right now, he and I get along great. What he’s doing, he’s doing. But if you look at the Republican electorate in any one of those districts — probably not,” said Rep. Mike Bost (R-Ill.) when asked if Kinzinger could win in a different seat. “It’d be hard.”
This guy made a very bad decision.
