Nearly All of Trump's House GOP Impeachers Set Fundraising Records Since Capitol Riot

Source: Newsweek

Nearly all of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump earlier this year have set fundraising records, despite Trump's repeated vow to help "primary" and replace each of the GOP lawmakers.

Major GOP donors, conservative political action committees (PACs) and even some Democrats have given the 10 House Republicans an influx of campaign cash since the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot. Despite an angry Trump vowing to "get rid of them all" at February's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), seven of the 10 set personal first-quarter fundraising records, a Bloomberg analysis revealed Friday.

So far, 15 primary challengers have formally announced their campaigns to take down the dissenting 10 Republicans in their districts. Despite having potential future access to Trump's high-profile super PAC donors, these 15 challengers' campaign finance reports show they're lagging far behind the 10 sitting congressional lawmakers.

Among all 15 pro-Trump challengers, they've raised $1.9 million in total through the first-quarter. One-quarter of the money placed in the 15 challengers' campaign coffers came from their own pockets, the latest campaign finance report shows.

This new fundraising info is interesting, because Republicans have until recently been able to gain success by acting increasingly crazy. When you look at Crawley, Cruz, Gaetz, etc., the more racist, fascist, and anti-science you act, the more successful a Republican will be.

Of course, it will be interesting to see how the primaries shake out, since you still have racists and Russians pushing trolling efforts to try to push extremists voices, but it is interesting how the folks who have voted to impeach Trump are still planning on running in 2022.

1. A related thought

Many, myself included, were unsure, even opposed to the first impeachment. He would be acquitted and embolden in his campaign, we were worried. Both Nixon and Clinton were in their second term.

Then came Covid and we never heard a word - at least I have not - about the impeachment during the campaign.

3. "gain success by acting increasingly crazy"

This is a phenomenon that coincides with the rapidly-diminishing size of their "base." As it gets smaller and smaller, it becomes more radical and crazy. In other words, outside of gerrymandered house districts, their chances of winning any general election go down. At some point, I assume, even their gerrymandered house districts could be in doubt.
