Skip to comments.Rep. Adam Kinzinger to Launch PAC Challenging GOP’s Embrace of Donald Trump

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), one of the ten Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump, is launching a political action committee (PAC) to challenge leadership in the GOP still aligned with the former president.
Kinzinger, who was once part of the 2010 class of Tea Party Republicans, said the Capitol Hill riots on January 6 was the straw that broke the camel’s back for the direction of the Republican Party, dividing those who wanted to move towards autocracy and those who wanted to return to a path of traditional conservatism, the Washington Post reported.
Kinzinger formally introduced his Country 1st PAC in a Sunday Meet the Press interview, followed by a six-minute campaign-style video launching what he hopes will transform the party from its current state.
“The reality is this: This is a time to choose … And my goal in launching Country1st.com is just to say, look, let’s take a look at the last four years, how far we have come in a bad way, how backward-looking we are, how much we peddle darkness and division,” Kinzinger said on the program.
“And that’s not the party I ever signed up for. And I think most Republicans didn’t sign up for that,” he added.
“Republicans must say enough is enough. It’s time to unplug the outrage machine, reject the politics of personality, and cast aside the conspiracy theories and the rage,” Kinzinger says in the launch video.
He also called politicians such as Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) “political terrorists.”
Kinzinger says he is not vying for leadership in the GOP or some form of higher office. His goal is just to drive the conspiracy theorists and racists out of the Republican Party.

So says the future former Congressman.
I’m going to lose my cushy job..I need to find a way to screw you people out of money so I can live large....
Adam, why don’t you just change your religion to Democrat and be done with it!
Time for a new party..GOP is useless...
Unless they wake fast
It could be another scam like the Lincoln Project, aka the Grifter Project.
What does he mean former President ?
Bush League Republicans want their party back.
There’s already an anti Trump pac...The Democratic Donors Pac. Ha.
What a moron this guy is
This will be funded by Dems to help him run as a Republican traitor.
Well they probably looked at how much dough Morris Dees has milked out of the Southern Poverty Law Center over five decades....
He’ll have to challenge over 70 million Trumpers.
[I’m going to lose my cushy job..I need to find a way to screw you people out of money so I can live large....]
“ traditional conservatism”
In Kinzinger-speak that means “being a good and consistent loser.”
Another piece of toast...they are making it easy for us to know them.
The PAC is called the Demonrat Party. Join it, Kinzinger, you slimy little treasonous Stalinazi scumbag.
It’s not without reason that the abbreviation for Illinois is Ill.
Another useless government teet sucker.
