Republican Accountability Project Launches Ad Campaign to Get Cruz and Hawley to Resign

Republican Accountability Project Launches Ad Campaign to Get Cruz and Hawley to Resign


The Republican Accountability Project has launched an ad campaign to force Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) to resign over their decision to vote against the Electoral College certification after a mob of former President Donald Trump’s supporters violently stormed the Capitol in a bid to overturn the results of an election that President Joe Biden won handily.

“You lied about the election. The Capitol was attacked,” the billboards read.

The billboard campaign cost the group $1 million. The group made headlines earlier this month for announcing it would donate $50 million to reelect any members of the GOP who vote to impeach or convict Trump for inciting the insurrection against Congress. Details about the campaign were first discussed with Politico.

“The billboards will be placed in each House member’s district, as well as in multiple cities in Texas and Missouri targeting Cruz and Hawley,” the outlet reported.

“These representatives and senators helped incite the attack on the Capitol by spreading lies about the election,” said Sarah Longwell, the executive director of the Republican Accountability Project. “They have proved that they are unfit to hold office. They should be nowhere near power.”

“It took a lot of players within the Republican party to convince the vast majority of their voters that the election was fraudulent,” Longwell added. “We are here to be an institutional memory of what happened and who said what.”

3. I've always believed we need a solid, responsible, patriotic, informed gop.

The point of our government was to have checks and balances. This is a relief. I hope it takes hold and rescues the gop so decent people will hold office. We're finding out right now how bad things can get if idiots and morons hold elected office.

5. Remember those here attacking Never Trumpers particularly over the last few months saying that they

were of no benefit, and that they'd run back to the GOP ? There was a clear bigger picture that they couldn't see, which was that Never Trumpers weren't going back, especially with 74m having voted for a GOP with Trump at the head. We are still early days of a civil war within the Republican Party, and while I have no doubt Never Trumpers would like to be part of some sort of conservative party, it's not going to be this one where they are hated more that anyone else.

If Democrats can get HR1 through and the John Lewis Voting Rights act, it will make a massive difference in future elections. I would go so far as to say that after the Covid Relief Bill, it's the one I would do before an Infrastructure or Immigration Bill. It is that important.
