GOP Impeachment Backers Face Tough, Well-Financed Primary Challengers

'We are gunning for the million dollar mark by the end of the year...'

Nine of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach former president Donald Trump after the Jan. 6 Capitol siege are facing pro-Trump primary challengers for 2022, several of whom have already raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for their campaigns.

Wyoming state Sen. Anthony Bouchard, one of the Republicans challenging Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., said he’s rapidly filling his coffers.

“My campaign has topped half a million and we are gunning for the million dollar mark by the end of the year,” Bouchard told Fox News.

Former Trump aide Max Miller, who is running against Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, R-Ohio, is the only primary challenger who has raised more than Bouchard.

Miller said in early April that he raised $500,000 in the very first month of his campaign, in large part because of a fundraising event Trump threw for Miller at the Trump International in Palm Beach.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., another vocal NeverTrumper, is being challenged by Catalina Lauf, who worked in the Trump administration in the Commerce Department.

Lauf slammed Kinzinger as a “career politician” and “warhawk” who “votes with Democrats on spending and refuses to stand up to the radical Left.”

“I have always understood the tremendous promise of this nation – which is why I proudly served in the Trump White House working to advance President Trump’s pro-jobs, pro-family agenda that delivered historic prosperity and progress for communities across this country,” she said.

Trump has vowed to help each of the primary challengers take down the Republicans who voted against him.

“Instead of attacking me and, more importantly, the voters of our movement, top establishment Republicans in Washington should be spending their energy in opposing Biden, Pelosi, Schumer and the Democrats,” he said back in February. “Get rid of them all.”
