Illinois Rep. Kinzinger Launches PAC Challenging GOP Embrace of Trump

Rep. Adam Kinzinger was one of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump. Now, the Illinois congressman is launching a political action committee to push back against a House GOP leadership team and party that he says have become too closely aligned to the former president.

Kinzinger announced the “Country 1st” PAC in a six-minute video released Sunday.

The PAC will challenge the current direction of a GOP that Kinzinger says has become a “Trump-first party” to the detriment of the nation, as seen by the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

The Illinois representative says his party has “lost its way.”
