Remember this Q post:
Freedom Caucus member Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) announced Wednesday he will not be seeking reelection in 2024 due to the House Republicans’ insistence that the 2020 presidential election was stolen and their “Jan. 6narrative.” He also predicted other Republican lawmakers will follow in his footsteps.
“I have decided, Andrea, I’m not going to seek reelection,” he said on MSNBC.
“I am joining Kay and probably some others in the near future,” he added, referring to House Appropriations Chairwoman Kay Granger’s (R-TX) decision not to run in 2024, also announced Wednesday. Granger notably didn’t mention the 2020 election or Jan. 6 in her brief statement, but Buck’s announcement suggests she may have been prompted by those issues.
… Buck is a member of the conservative Freedom Caucus and hails from a solidly Republican district. However, Buck did not support Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) bid for the speakership last month, despite their common caucus membership. “I’m concerned about the inability to acknowledge that Joe Biden won the election and the activities surrounding Jan. 6,” he said of Jordan’s campaign for speaker at the time.
And another one bites the dust.
