Anti-Trump Republican Adam Kinzinger Announces He’ll Not Seek Reelection

This could embolden his shenanigans on the January 6th committee as well.

As the Republican Party continues to cleave in two, with Redhats on one side and the old guard on the other, it appears as though one side is set to lose a very vocal member.

In this modern day GOP, there are opposing forces at work at all times.  The MAGA Movement, which seeks to bring some of the far-right’s ideology into the mainstream Republican Party, while the fiscal conservatives attempt to subvert this growing, tidal force.

One of these centrist Republicans is now hanging it up, however, further dwindling their herd’s numbers.

Congressman Adam Kinzinger, a vocal critic of former President Trump, member of the House select committee investigating January 6, and one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach the former president, says he won’t be running for reelection.

Kinzinger announced in a video posted to Twitter Friday he won’t run for reelection next year, hours after Illinois’ legislature passed a map that puts him and Republican Congressman Darin LaHood in the same seat.

“I cannot focus on both a re-election to Congress and a broader fight nationwide. I want to make it clear, this isn’t the end of my political future, but rather the beginning,” Kinzinger said.

Kinzinger rose to prominence in recent years thanks to his staunch opposition to then-President Donald Trump in almost every facet of his presidency.  This led him to be one of two Republicans to serve on the January 6th select committee, and, without electoral repercussions hanging over his head, he may be more inclined to engage in a scorched-earth campaign within that group.
