There are still responsible leaders in the Republican Party. In the House, 64 Republicans voted not to object to counting the electoral votes, and ten voted to impeach former president Trump for inciting the attack on the U.S. Capitol. In the Senate, five voted not to dismiss the impeachment trial, and seven Republicans voted to convict.
In addition to death threats and harassment, these courageous legislators are facing well-funded primary challengers from the Trump wing of the Republican Party. The Republican Accountability Project will be the counterbalancing force.
We will support these defenders of democracy against primary challenges from the right. We need more leaders like them in Washington, not fewer.
