  1. yeah, you want a democrat to take you seat then by all means run away. We don't want cowards in Congress as we have too many of them there already.

  2. His house seat is being abolished by democrats in Illinois. Therefore, the gig is up and no one wants him anywhere else! This is what you get when you are supposed to be conservative and go woke! The right kicks you off and the left stabs you in the back!!!!!! Brandon sucks! Let’s go!

  3. Adam Kinzinger can't get elected, might as well quit. Where was he during the impeachment hearings when the Democrats were telling lies every time they moved they're mouth? He should find another field to work in, his career in politics is shot, he is the enemy.

  4. He won’t seek re-election because he now feels the repercussions of his two-faced backstabbing ways. Nobody wants traitor, and that’s exactly what he is. Soon, Cheney, Romney and a few other RINO’s will be joining him.

  5. He had no chance of reelection. He is just a bad joke of a Congressman. He could not be elected as a dog catcher now. Does anyone remember Jeff Flake? No one will remember who these Judas RINOS are in 5 years. CBS may hire him as a fake journalist though because the mainstream media loves anyone who hates the GOP. The mainstream media only hires Democratic hacks like Chuck Todd or Judas RINOS.

  6. We were going to wipe the floor with his @ss in the Illinois Primaries next year.

    He is a coward and not willing to endure a huge loss

    No matter what future office that Zinger runs for, MAGA will be there to defeat him.

    Too bad the taxpayers are on the hook for lifetime benefits to this slimy pr!ck.
