Trump Only Has 5 Traitorous RINOS Left
(TruthandLiberty.com) – Ten Republicans voted to impeach President Donald Trump in January 2021, and the former president is having his way with them so far in the 2022 midterm primary elections. Instead of running for re-election, four of the lawmakers opted to retire from Congress, leaving six incumbents. Still, the dominoes are falling quickly.
On Tuesday, June 14, Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC) lost to Trump-endorsed primary challenger Russell Fry (R-SC), taking the group’s number down to five. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) was a member of the GOP House leadership before she voted to impeach Trump. In addition to losing her leadership position, the Wyoming GOP censored the lawmaker for being a leader on the Democratic partisan House Select Committee investigating January 6. Now, Trump-endorsed challenger Harriet Hageman (R-WY) has a 30-point lead over the incumbent.
Just five of the 10 House GOP members who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump remain, and all face uncertain futures in the midterm elections.https://t.co/0zHI1oKkxk

Peter Meijer (R-MI) may fare better than Cheney, but only due to his considerable financial war chest. He’s up against Trump-endorsed challenger John Gibbs (R-MI). Also facing challenger headwinds are Trump-endorsed candidate Loren Culp (R-WA) and Joe Kent (R-WA) in areas not as favorable to the former president. In addition, Rep. David Valadao (R-CA) is the last Trump impeachment vote. He defeated his GOP primary challenger by fewer than 1,500 votes and is in a tough November runoff.
So, how will Trump do moving forward? It’s difficult to assess because of limited public polling, but the former president could see his picks win three out of the next five Republican seats.
