Ten Republican congressmen, including Liz Cheney – the third highest ranking Republican congresswoman – voted alongside Democrats in the second impeachment request against Donald J. Trump. Today, less than ten days after the vote, the consequences are already being felt.
The president’s loyal supporters (a minority among the 70 million who voted for Trump in November, but still very powerful), have sworn to those who want to hear that they will not forget the disloyalty of these politicians towards the president. But beyond the threats in social networks, there are concrete actions that are already being felt.
In Wyoming, the state Cheney represents, voices have already emerged opposing the legislator. Bryan Miller, a retired air force officer, has yet to announce his candidacy to compete in a primary against the daughter of the former vice-president, but has been around all the local media criticizing her amid rumors of an early announcement of her candidacy.
Cheney’s own colleague, Wyoming Sen. Anthony Bouchard, has also criticized her, claiming that blaming the former president for the January 6 violent incidents “was out of place.”
Legislator Liz Cheney, daughter of the former vice president of George W. Bush, has already received criticism in her state, Wyoming, and has faced internal opponents to renew her bank.
Peter Meijer, the congressman from Michigan who also voted in favor of impeachment, you already have a candidate competing for the primary. Is about Tom Norton, veteran of the Afghan war, who announced his candidacy no less than on the podcast of Steve Bannon, former adviser to President Trump.
Congressman from Illinois, Adam Kinzinger, also has a contender in the primary: Gene Koprowski, a former director of the ultra-conservative think tank Heartland Institute.
In Ohio, former State Representative Christina Hagan is not ruling out a primary against US Congressman Anthony Gonzalez.
“I have never seen such an act of disloyalty by a member of the Republican delegation from Ohio,” Hagan told reporters.
If there was one thing that the now-former President Trump’s movement did very well from the beginning, it was to secure a network of solid financial donations. Several of those donors are unhappy.
Suzie Burke, a Seattle executive who donated to Republican campaigns for the past four years, He assured that he will not put money back for Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler, who voted in favor of impeachment.
Hossein Khorram, who founded an official pro-Trump finance committee in Washington state, assured reporters that cancels its operations in favor of these ten congressmen.
The political action committee Courageous Conservatives issued a statement announcing that they will focus their efforts on promoting and funding candidates who face Congressmen Cheney, Gonzalez and Tom Rice of South Carolina in primaries.
Even more impressive is that the former president has raised more than 200 million dollars since the November election, which will be used in large part in the creation of a new committee that will be in charge of financing campaigns of Trump candidates with a view to the elections of 2022.
It is clear that at this point there is a division in the Republican party between those who consider themselves part of Trump’s ranks and those who do not. It is difficult to predict whether following the former president will bring them long-term benefits. Generally, to dispute a bench of someone who is in exercise is usually a very difficult task. But that does not imply that it will be impossible.
In what many already consider a rebirth of the Republican party, it will be necessary to see what place the outgoing president will occupy.
