Days after announcing that he would not be seeking reelection, the RINO Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) has revealed that he is considering running for president in 2024.
Kinzinger told CNN that he is at least considering a gubernatorial run in 2024, and if not that, then a presidential one.
“The key is, how do we restore the honor of the party in the country?” Kinzinger said, adding that he “definitely” would not rule out a 2024 run for the White House.
“I never rule anything out,” he added.
Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL), however, spoke out to say that Kinzinger will not have an easy road ahead of him as a never-Trump Republican coming out of Illinois.
“It would be very hard,” Krishnamoorthi said. “If you’re a Republican here in our state, it’s not easy unless you embrace Trump. So that’s question No. 1. And question No. 2 is, do you embrace a lot of the policies that are popular in Illinois? So I’m not sure what the path is.”
Kinzinger is one of the ten Republicans who voted in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump earlier this year. In his video in which he revealed he would not be running for reelection, Kinzinger appeared to stand by his impeachment vote, saying that he was fueled by supporters who told him to “be my own man and to never ‘do what they tell you to do.'”
“I stand tall and proud knowing that I have done just that,” Kinzinger said. “I also remember during that campaign saying that if I ever thought it was time to move on from Congress, I would. And that time is now.”
Kinzinger went on to rant against the rife partisanship in Washington, accusing both parties of seeking to appeal to their most extreme flanks.
“In this day, to prevail or survive, you must belong to a tribe,” he said. “Our political parties only survive by appealing to the most motivated and the most extreme elements within it. And the price tag to power has skyrocketed, and fear and distrust has served as an effective strategy to meet that cost.”
“Dehumanizing each other has become the norm,” Kinzinger added. “We’ve taken it from social media to the streets. We’ve allowed leaders to reach power selling the false premise that strength comes from degrading others and dehumanizing those that look, act or think differently than we do. As a country, we’ve fallen for those lies, and now we face a poisoned country filled with outrage blinding our ability to reach real strength.”
