For months there have been rumors that without former President Donald Trump in office, the Republican Party might divide into warring factions. Now, there are indications that may be happening.
“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,” according to Breitbart.
“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…
“He also called politicians such as Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) ‘political terrorists.‘” [emphasis added]
