Republicans: Now is a time for choosing.

Some Republicans in Congress did the right thing and voted against overturning a free and fair election. Now, Republican senators must vote to convict Trump for inciting a violent insurrection against the U.S. government, and disqualify him from holding future office. The Republican Accountability Project will work to defend Republicans who vote their conscience from the threat of primary challenges and deploy resources against those who continue to lie to voters about widespread election fraud.

The Republican Accountability Project will do three things:

  • It will work to hold Republican members of Congress who have enabled or capitulated to Trump and Trumpism accountable for their votes—including by helping credible primary challengers against them.
  • It will ensure that ample resources are available for those principled Republicans who do the right thing and hold Trump accountable for inciting an attack on the U.S. Capitol to defend against primary challengers.
  • And, in primaries for open or redistricted seats, it will back new candidates who would be principled Republicans if elected to office.

Accountability matters.

If you’re a Republican politician who supported the Big Lie that there was widespread fraud in this election, if you objected to the certification of legitimate Electoral College votes, or otherwise pretended that Congress could overturn the will of the American people, you will be held accountable.

“The hope of impunity is a strong incitement to sedition; the dread of punishment, a proportionably strong discouragement to it.”
—Alexander Hamilton, Federalist 27
