GOP Rep. Fred Upton to retire​

Rep. Fred Upton, one of the longest-tenured Republicans in the House of Representatives, has decided to retire rather than seek reelection in 2022.

Upton was one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump in January 2021, saying in a statement that “our country cannot and will not tolerate any effort by any president to impede the peaceful transfer of power.” Now, Upton is the fourth of those 10 to retire, joining Reps. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio), John Katko (R-N.Y.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) in exiting Congress.

Of course, he says this decision isn't about backlash for his vote to impeach Trump.

Can't have people who don't worship at the Temple of Trump! That's verboten in the cult.

Must get on knees and praise the Donald.

What a surprise, the Trump cult is still furious that people have actual spines and principles rather than mindlessly loyalty to Trump.
