More than 100 Republicans threaten to form 3rd party over Trump

More than 100 Republicans will sign a letter Thursday threatening to create a third party if the GOP doesn't "break" with former President Trump, Reuters first reported.
Why it matters: Per Axios' Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei, Trump's grip on the GOP has gotten stronger since the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. The Republican Party's "allegiance to Trump" as he continues to make false claims about his 2020 election loss has "dismayed" the group, according to Reuters.
  • Per the New York Times, the letter's preamble will state, "When in our democratic republic, forces of conspiracy, division, and despotism arise, it is the patriotic duty of citizens to act collectively in defense of liberty and justice."
  • The letter is due to be released one day after House Republicans are expected to vote on ousting Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her position as conference chair....


Exciting times ahead... :clap:

    Know hope...

    The US is at its best when two parties are running on ideas to better improve people’s lives...This version of the GOP is sadly underwhelming.

    They are trying to limit voting rights, undermining faith in the Democratic Process, doing whatever to can to undermine Covid Recovery...How anyone can vote for such bad faith actors is beyond me.

    Tbh, I dont see them getting very far. The Trumper party has become well entrenched. At least the hope is for them to sow just a small element of doubt in wavering Trumpers who may have their countrys best interests in mind. Just enough to siphon off a good 5% of GOP voters in the next election.

    "An Initiative of Stand Up Republic & The Republican Political Alliance for Integrity and Reform (REPAIR)" - I like the acronym. :lol:

    Super Trumper Matt Gaetz is too busy sexing his minors to keep the Grand Ole Party together.
