RNC votes to end ALL support for Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger

The RNC’s Resolutions Committee has just unanimously voted to end all support for both Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. Now the resolution goes to the entire RNC, but is expected to easily pass:

NEWSMAX – Without a single dissenting vote, the Resolutions Committee of the Republican National Committee (RNC) agreed on Thursday night to “cease any and all support” for Republican Reps. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., and Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and condemned their behavior on the Jan. 6 commission as “destructive to the institution of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Republican Party, and our republic.”

Old party hands told Newsmax that the language of the resolution, which will be taken up Friday by the 169-member RNC at its winter meeting in Salt Lake City (UT), is the harshest ever directed at a Republican office-holder in memory.

“This is far tougher than what I originally wrote and it really says it all about those two,” Maryland Republican National Committeeman Dave Bossie told Newsmax soon after the vote.

There had been considerable discussion before the meeting Thursday about crafting a resolution that called on Kinzinger and Cheney to be expelled from the House GOP Conference.

But instead of urging House members to do something many have so far been uncomfortable with doing, the RNC panel settled on the resolution that condemns Kinzinger and Cheney, “who have demonstrated with actions and with words, that they support Democrat efforts to destroy President Trump more than they support winning back a Republican majority [in Congress] in 2022.”

This won’t have any devastating consequences on either candidate though, unfortunately:

The termination of support for Cheney and Kinzinger is not expected to have a major impact on either lawmaker; Kinzinger has already announced his retirement and Cheney, who faces a stiff primary challenge, has so far raised more money than any Republican House candidate this year.

Never Trumper donors have been working hard for Cheney, but I really don’t think that’s going to help her much in Wyoming. I really believe that no matter how much money she spends, she’s scared her reputation for life by voting to impeach Trump and voters in Wyoming are going to send her packing.

I just did a quick search and the only poll I could find was done in December and it had Cheney trailing Harriet Hageman by 20%. Which is exactly what I would have hoped for.

I am glad the RNC did this and would hope that Kevin McCarthy will one day live up to his promise of punishing Cheney for joining Pelosi’s hack committee. So far it doesn’t look good though.
