(UnitedVoice.com) – In January, Democrats blamed then-President Donald Trump for the incident on Capitol Hill. They voted to impeach him and 10 House GOP members joined the Left’s crusade. Now those conservatives might suffer consequences for their actions.
In the next election, 9 of the 10 members of the House GOP caucus who voted to impeach Trump are facing primary challengers. The challenges come months after a February speech where the former president said he would work to see those lawmakers ousted after they betrayed him. “Get rid of them all,” he told the audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
To let people know he was serious, Trump endorsed Republican Max Miller who is running to unseat Rep. Anthony Gonzalez in the race for Ohio’s 16th district.
I am honored to be endorsed by President Donald J. Trump as I begin my campaign for Congress.
I will never back down and will never betray my constituents.
Join us. We will save America together.
— Max Miller (@MaxMillerOH) February 26, 2021
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who lost her GOP leadership role over her Trump hate, is facing a challenge from multiple Conservatives. State Sen. Anthony Bouchard has raised more than $500,000 for the primary race. He told Fox News that Cheney has “made it obvious” she hasn’t “had a conservative vote in Washington.”
Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC) is also facing challenges as a result of his vote. State Rep. William Bailey, former Myrtle Beach Mayor Mark McBride and others have said they will run in the primary.
The only Republican who voted to impeach Trump who does not have a primary challenger yet is Rep. John Katko (R-NY). He has been working with the party to get back in their good graces, according to Fox News. However, that doesn’t mean that he won’t face opposition soon.
