Republicans who voted to impeach Trump raise more funds than GOP rivals in second quarter

Funds are pouring in for Republicans who voted to impeach former President Trump in the second quarter and money wise most of them are far ahead of their primary challengers. On Friday, The Hill checked the reports filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) by the congresspersons on Thursday and reported that the House Republicans who broke away from the rest of the GOP to impeach Trump have more funds when compared with their rivals.

 

The excess funds may or may not allow them to win the elections as Trump has said that he would campaign against them and prop his own candidates. Trump’s support at the grassroots level remains and the extent of it will only be known after the midterm election results are announced.

 

Liz Cheney

 

Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming faced ire from the former president Donald Trump and was removed from the No. 3 position in the House. Since then, she has a financial windfall as she has raised nearly $1.9 million and the total amount in the bank end June exceeds $2.8 million.

 

She faces a group of GOP primary challengers but none of them have managed to raise amounts that could be called a challenge. However, her criticism of Trump’s role in the Capitol riot could make her lose some grass roots support as Trump will campaign against her. One challenger in Wyoming Sen. Anthony Bouchard has raised $213,000 while another state Rep. Chuck Gray has about $220,000 as cash according to filings.

 

Adam Kinzinger

 

Representative Adam Kinzinger of Illinois who also moved to impeach Trump and remains a vocal critic saw his coffers increase by $800,000 bringing his total funds to more than $3 million. He has also outpaced a group of primary challengers but faces Trump’s ire.

 

David Valadao

 

Valadao, the Representative from California has raised about $350,000 more than Chris Mathys who could be his primary opponent.

 

Fred Upton

 

A Representative from Michigan, Fred Upton raised $242,000 while his closest opponent Steve Carra raised less than half this amount at $108,000.

 

Anthony Gonzalez

 

Gonzalez, the Representative from Ohio raised $602,000 while his Trump-endorsed rival Max Miller raised $443,000.

 

Lisa Murkowski

 

Murowski, the Senator from Alaska has been a veteran as well as a vocal opponent of Trump’s alleged role in the Capitol riot. She raised $1.15 million in the second quarter which was more than double the amount of $544,000 pulled in by her Trump-endorsed candidate Kelly Tshibaka.

 

Tom Rice

 

Representative Tom Rice was the only member in the impeachment group who raised less than his conservative rival in the primaries. He pulled in about $326,000 while Graham Allen raised over $500,000.
