GOP lawmaker who backed impeachment says Trump will be ‘hard to stop’ in 2024

Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) gained notoriety when he voted for former President Donald Trump’s impeachment, but according to a recent report by The Washington Examiner, the representative is known for something else.

The Michigan representative now says he believes the former president “will be hard to stop” if he looks to get the presidential nomination in 2024.

Upton said Sunday that Trump will be a big candidate and argued that the Jan. 6 committee’s findings are likely to resonate with moderates, but Trump still likely has enough support for a Republican win:

“I have said from the beginning, I think that Donald Trump is going to be a candidate in ’24. The voters still like him a lot,” Upton said on State of the Union.

“We see that certainly in Michigan. He’s had a number of decisive wins where he’s endorsed candidates [who] have won. He’s had a few losses as well, but he certainly entertains a majority of the Republican base and will be hard to stop.

“And, frankly, as we look at the economy, we look at gas prices, all these different things, folks are not really happy with the Biden administration, which is why he is mired at a level even below where Donald Trump was at this point in his tenure.”

The congressman was questioned about why he believed that Trump was such a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming election and he responded that he believes the answer could be seen in the 2016 election: “Well, look, it was a close election. It was a close election in 2016. It was certainly a close election in 2020 as well. And you have got the base voters that are really upset that things didn’t go their way, and they’re — they’re loyal as can be.”

Despite his approaching retirement and the departure of several Republicans who have spoken out against Trump, Upton believes that Republicans will continue to oppose the former president.

“You got to remember, too, though there were only 10 of us that voted to impeach, there were 35 of us that voted for a bipartisan commission to look at this,” Upton said, referring to the fallout after Jan. 6.

“And we know that there were a lot of folks who were, frankly, scared of their reelection, which is why they voted the other way as well. So our group is actually a little bit stronger than what the numbers showed. And, of course, we did send it to the Senate, and they did have a majority of the senators vote to impeach the president. But we will — that’s why politics is so much fun sometimes. It’s — we will see how things all shake out.”
