Rep. Adam Kinzinger Pushes 'Uneasy Alliance' to Thwart Trump's Allies

Source: WTTW.com

NEW YORK (AP) — In the high-stakes fight for the GOP’s future, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., is calling on Democrats and independents to form an “uneasy alliance” with Republicans to fight former President Donald Trump's influence.

Kinzinger, one of Trump’s fiercest Republican critics in Congress, has directed his political organization to initiate a novel campaign to convince non-Republicans to support anti-Trump Republican candidates in GOP primary contests across the country later this year. Experts suggest the practice, sometimes known as “party raiding,” will be hard to execute on a broad scale, but Kinzinger warned that failure to shift the GOP’s embrace of Trump could undermine democracy or even lead to “failed state.”

“People need to wake up to that real possibility,” Kinzinger, who is not seeking reelection this fall, told The Associated Press. “We have to be able to have uneasy alliances, as uneasy as they may be in this moment.”

There are few modern examples of a sitting Republican member of Congress so openly asking Democrats to help take down a former president of his own party.

I already planned to do this in GA. Stacy Abrams has no primary opponent anyway. Defeat Perdue & Jody Hice. And if you're in a reliably Red state, even MORE reason to do it. Vote in the GOP primary and defeat the Trump shills that he needs in place to tamper with the NEXT election. If you live in Liz Cheney's district, vote for her.
Not only does it defeat trumps lackeys, the bonus is that it will drive Trump absolutely NUTS
