Rep. Kinzinger talks about a presidential run against Trump

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said Monday that he would “love” to challenge former President Donald Trump in 2024, according to The Washington Examiner.

The Republican representative didn’t go so far as to commit to being in the primary against the potential candidate, and commentators wonder if he is possibly running for another office.

Kinzinger is rumored to be contemplating a move by running for governor, senator, and president, according to the Examiner, but he didn’t announce anything official following his retirement from office.

“I would love it. I really would,” he told the HuffPost about a primary challenge against Trump. “Even if he crushed me, like in a primary, to be able to stand up and call out the garbage is just a necessary thing, regardless of who it is. … I think it’d be fun.”

Kinzinger announced last year that he would be retiring from the House of Representatives following an unfavorable redistricting in his area of the state of Illinois.

The retiring representative didn’t say he had plans to run but was clear that he was “not going to rule it out,” either.

“I’ll make a decision when we get there, if there’s a need and a desire. It’s truly not anything I’m planning right now, but I’m not going to rule it out,” he said. “Look, if we’re in a position, if it’s just terrible candidates and the country’s in a worse place? Maybe. But there’s no grand plan right now.”

In addition to talking about the potential that he could run for the high office, Kinzinger said he is “exhausted of the same arguments, the same kind of performative politics,” seeming to indicate specific frustration with the House.

“I don’t know. Maybe I would have run for governor. Maybe I would have run for Senate. Who knows? But yeah, my time in the House is, mercifully, coming to an end,” he said.
