Nine out of the Ten House RINOs who voted to impeach Trump are facing primary challengers.
Here are the 9:
Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.
Rep. Tom Rice, R-S.C.
Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill.
Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-Wash.
Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, R-Ohio
Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich.
Rep. Peter Meijer, R-Mich.
Rep. David Valadao, R-Calif.
The only one not facing a challenger yet is Rep. John Katko, R-N.Y.
Nine of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump over the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol are already facing primary challenges – and some of them may have a very hard time holding on to their seats.

Now the walls are closing in for Republicans like Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, Tom Rice of South Carolina, and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.
Cheney has, arguably, the largest target on her back. In order to win, she must defeat eight primary challengers, one of which, State Sen. Anthony Bouchard, has already raised $500,000 in campaign money. Cheney was previously ousted from House GOP leadership over her comments about Trump’s part in the January 6 riots, an event she places him at the center of. This, of course, puts a great deal of momentum against her.
Washington Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler faces much the same problem as she voted for Trump’s impeachment, agreeing with the Democrat narrative that Trump was to blame for the riot. Fellow Washington Rep. Dan Newhouse was already facing calls to resign in his district over his impeachment vote. Both have multiple primary challengers.
Also facing down primary challengers is New York Rep. John Katko, Rep. David Valadao of California, Michigan Reps. Peter Meijer and Fred Upton, and Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez.
