Another Impeachment Republican Out, Beaten By Trump Pick

  • Michigan Republican Rep. Peter Meijer, who supported impeaching then-President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, lost his primary to Trump-endorsed challenger John Gibbs.
  • Meijer, a moderate Republican who was elected in 2020, is a member of the family who owns the Meijer grocery chain. He is one of ten Republicans who voted to impeach the former president after the riot.
  • Trump endorsed Gibbs in November 2021, calling Meijer a “RINO” – Republican in Name Only – who “has been a terrible representative of the Republican Party.”
