Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said Monday on CNN's “Situation Room” that if Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) loses her primary Tuesday it would mean that she would be a sign that the Republican Party was in a “bad place,” given she “is standing up against evil.”
Cheney is vice-chair of the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 2021 riot that took place on the Capitol and also voted to impeach the former president Donald Trump, who endorsed her opponent Attorney Harriet Hageman.
Blitzer declared, “Before I let you go, the sole Republican that you already know, sitting on the 6th of January Select Committee, Congresswoman Liz Cheney, has a tough time in her primary vote tomorrow in Wyoming. What does it mean for your party should she lose the seat she holds?”
Kinzinger stated, “Well, I think this shows that the political party is in a bad spot. Let's face it, we're fighting against evil. Liz Cheney is standing up against evil. In fact, I shared this message a few days ago that many people are sitting around, and they think about the day they'll be able to make it happen; however, very few are given the opportunity to take on evil. As we've seen in Congress the majority of those who do have that opportunity don't. She's fought a tough battle.”
