GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger announces he will not seek reelection in 2022

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who is an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump and one of two Republicans on the Jan. 6 House select committee, will not seek reelection next year. 

He will finish the remainder of his term in Congress that ends on Jan. 3, 2023. Kinzinger hinted at other political plans in the video saying, “this isn’t the end of my political future, but the beginning.” Kinzinger did not specify if he will seek elected office again.

His name has been floated as a potential rival to Pritzker or Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth, both of whom are up for re-election in 2022. Kinzinger used a video statement as a call to support his political action committee, Country First.

“We need to remember who we really are, what we’ve achieved in our darker days and what we’ve always fought for in a brighter future. I know I’m not alone,” he said. “Many Americans are desperately searching for a better way. They want solutions, not more problems. They want action, not extremism. They want light, not darkness.”
