Congressman Fred Upton, one of the Republicans who voted to impeach President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6th Capitol riot, predicted that he will be hard to beat if Trump ultimately runs for another term as president. Rep. Upton, who is retiring from Congress at the end of his term, made the comments to CNN’s Dana Bash.

According to The Hill:

“He’s had a number of decisive wins where he’s endorsed candidates that they have won,” Upton said of Trump. “He’s had a few losses as well, but he certainly entertains a majority of the Republican base and will be hard to stop.”

Democrats are facing historical headwinds as this year’s midterm elections approach, a political problem exacerbated by voters’ concerns over President Biden’s handling of the economy.

“As we look at the economy, we look at gas prices, all these different things, folks are not really happy with the Biden administration, which is why he is mired at a level even below where Donald Trump was at this point in his tenure,” Upton said on Sunday.

Last week, Rep. Tom Rice, who also voted to impeach Trump, lost his GOP primary to Russell Fry. Despite Rice’s loss, Upton still predicted other impeachment Republicans will manage to survive the midterms.

“We will see when these primaries are over, but, yes, I think there will be some of the 10 that are standing,” Upton said.

  1. Well, he was wrong about impeaching President Trump, but he is not wrong about 2024. IF President Trump decides to run, he will be hard to stop. If I were him I would run away as fast as I could. The Left has made his life very difficult, simply because they can’t control him. He is unlike any other politician, in that he is NOT a politician! He says things he “shouldn’t”, he actually gets things done, and worst of all, he KEEPS his campaign promises. Let’s face it, he makes all these career politicians look bad!

  2. The only thing I can say is this guy needs to be voted out. If he is, he will try in the next election as a Democrat
