Dirty RINO Fred Upton Who Voted for Trump Impeachment Announces His Retirement from Congress

Another dirtbag drops out.

Rep. Fred Upton from Michigan announced on Tuesday he will not seek reelection. Upton is one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Republican President Trump.

Reuters-Yahoo.com reported:

U.S. Representative Fred Upton on Tuesday said he will retire from Congress, marking the latest political exit by a Republican lawmaker who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.

“Even the best stories (have) a last chapter. This is it for me,” the Michigan Republican said in a statement delivered from the U.S. House of Representatives floor.

“I’ve signed over a million letters, cast more votes while in the chamber here and accomplished what I set out to do with more unfinished work still yet to come,” added Upton, whose current term ends this year.

Upton was one of 10 Republican House members who voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump after the deadly Jan. 6, 2021, attack at the Capitol.

He was an early critic of Trump’s false claims that he lost the November presidential election due to widespread fraud and has said his vote for impeachment was to “send a clear message” that the United States will not tolerate a president impeding the peaceful transfer of power.

Trump has endorsed Michigan state lawmaker Steve Carra’s bid to challenge Upton.

Steve Carra dropped out on March 15, which improved the standing of Upton’s challenger, Trump-backed Huizenga.

Upton stood to potentially gain from a third contender in the GOP primary, state Rep. Steve Carra of Three Rivers, because it was thought Carra would split the pro-Trump vote with Huizenga. But Carra dropped out March 15 and endorsed Huizenga after the Trump endorsement.

Is the 6th one on his way too? And then there’s Liz Cheney…
