Kinzinger: GOP 'certainly not united' on 'vision for the future'

“We may be united in some areas… we don’t have to agree with everything the Biden administration is doing and so we’ll be opposition… but I think in terms of what is our vision for the future -- certainly not united,” Kinzinger said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday. “I think we are a party that’s been, for too long, peddling in fear, using fear as a compelling way to get votes.”

Asked about Trump’s upcoming remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference, his first public speech since leaving office, Kinzinger said “I think what you’re going to hear from the president at CPAC today is self-congratulations, no ability to recognize the fact that we have lost the House, the Senate and the presidency because of Donald Trump, and you’re going to see a lot of fear.”

CBS’ Margaret Brennan asked Kinzinger about the political action committee Kinzinger founded and whether he had identified any candidates it would back.

“There are a few I really appreciate in the Senate… those who voted to remove the president in particular because I think they did it at great personal cost,” Kinzinger said, naming Sens.
