Congressional redistricting has been hanging over the heads of dozens of RINO Congressmen like the mythical sword of Damocles for months since the end of the 2020 census. And some of the reports just coming in are going down smooth like a 21-year-old Whiskey.
Take this one for example: Nationally reviled RINO Rep. Adam Kinzinger could lose his precious seat in the next round of redistricting changes but on the bright side he is trying very, very hard to make it seem that it isn’t bothering him. It’s really entertaining to watch. It’s not as simple as him being voted out, no it’s a lot funnier, due to the depopulation of Illinois resulting from the nightmarish regime the Democrats have built there for nearly a century.
According to Politico,
“Kinzinger is well-aware his seat is on the chopping block but says he’s not “overthinking” or “losing sleep” over something of which he has no control.
“If I lose my district, we’ll take a look then,” he told POLITICO. “But I’m not too freaked out.”
A RINO With Grandiose Ambitions
The Illinois Congressman seemed to be crossing a line from denial to delusion in other interviews. He’s indicated that he wants to stay involved with the future of the GOP, unusual for a man who seems to want nothing to do with the rest of his party, let alone the grassroots. But this is the absolute height of it.
“I certainly wouldn’t rule out Senate or governor and anything else. Maybe, who knows?” Kinzinger said.
Kinzinger even went so far as to claim he didn’t need to hold office to “make an impact”, saying “I still have a passion for what I’m doing and so I’d still fight hard for what I believe. So, I don’t think it’s necessary.”
The disgraced congressman is making a crucial mistake if he believes that the Democrat establishment in Illinois will countenance him having a political future in their domain. While Kinzinger has a prodigious war chest at his disposal it is dubious that it would allow him to unseat Gov. JB Pritzker or Senator Tammy Duckworth. While neither has faced a serious contender for quite some time it’ll take more than money to break the machines that placed and have kept them in office. And among even moderate Republicans Kinzinger’s name is worth mud these days.
