RINO Who Voted To Impeach Trump Loses Primary

Rep. Peter Meijer, one of the 10 GOP reps who voted to impeach Trump lost his primary election on Tuesday.

He lost to Trump-backed candidate John Gibbs.

From CNN:

Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan, one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump last year, has lost to a fervent election denier running with Trump’s support, CNN projected early Wednesday.

Republicans in Michigan and Arizona — two states at the center of Trump’s 2020 election denial campaign — voted on Tuesday in primaries for crucial federal and state contests as the shape of the 2022 midterms comes into focus less than a hundred days from Election Day.

Trump’s pick will win the GOP gubernatorial nod in Michigan, CNN projects. In Arizona, local election officials were still counting votes to determine whether a slate of statewide candidates who were endorsed by Trump and promoted his lies about election fraud won their Republican primaries. But one significant loss so far was that of state House Speaker Rusty Bowers, who delivered emotional testimony before the House January 6 committee about his resolve in the face of enormous pressure to overturn the 2020 results. He’ll lose a GOP state Senate primary, CNN projected early Wednesday.

John Gibbs celebrated the win and said Trump called him to congratulate him on the win.

This is the second pro-impeachment RINO to lose re-election.
