LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A group of Republicans opposed to former President Donald Trump on Thursday will endorse a series of Democratic lawmakers who will face tough races in next year’s midterm elections in an attempt to stop the Republican Party retake control of Congress.
Group members, dismayed to see a majority of elected Republicans defend Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was stolen, told Reuters they are also supporting vulnerable supporters such as Representative Liz Cheney, who rejects allegations of election fraud .
The Renew America Movement (RAM), formed by center Republicans after a mob of Trump supporters stormed Congress on Jan. 6 to try to stop lawmakers from certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s election victory, acknowledges that Trump and his colleagues conspiracy theories now dominate the party with an iron fist.
According to an August Reuters/Ipsos poll, 30% of American adults agree that “the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump,” a figure that includes 61% Republicans, 19% Independents and 10% Democrats.
Trump, for his part, has endorsed several candidates preparing to challenge in the Republican parliamentary primary who voted for his impeachment for inciting an insurrection in an incendiary speech before the deadly Jan. 6 attack on Capitol Hill.
