The first election since the second impeachment of former President Donald Trump isn’t until next year, but pro-Trump candidates have already rallied support against Republican lawmakers who voted to impeach. Fox News broke down each candidate Monday.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is one such congresswoman up for reelection in 2022. Not only did she vote to impeach then President Trump following Jan. 6th, but she was also recently ousted from her position as GOP Conference Chair. Pro-Trump Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) took her place.

Now, state Sen. Anthony Bouchard is running against Cheney in the primaries. On Monday, he shared a Fox News article that reported his campaign fundraised over $500,000. He’s even changed his Twitter name to “Anthony Bouchard for Congress Against Cheney.”

However, Bouchard is not without scandal himself. He recently admitted that he impregnated a 14-year-old when he was 18-years-old at the time.

Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA) will be facing off against four other Republican candidates in the primary election. Among them, is Green Beret Joe Kent. According to Kent, Herrera Beutler “no longer represents our community’s values.”

Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) is also facing fierce competition in the same state. His opponents include State Rep. Brad Klipper, Army veteran and author Loren Culp and veteran and former NASCAR driver , Jerrod Sessler.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) voted to impeach Trump and also supported Cheney while she was ousted. While it was a vocal vote that removed her as GOP Conference Chair, it was reported at the time that Kinzinger was one of the votes against her removal.

Now, a former Trump administration official is campaigning against him. Catalina Lauf worked in the Commerce Department under Trump. She says Kinzinger is a “fake Republican.”

Meanwhile, Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH) is also facing a former Trump aide, Max Miller. He already received Trump’s endorsement back in February, wearing it proudly in his Twitter bio.

Reps. Fred Upton, (R-MI), Peter Meijer (R-MI), David Valadao (R-CA) and John Katko (R-NY) are also up for reelection against pro-Trump candidates.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
