RENEW AMERICA MOVEMENT UNVEILS SLATE OF HOUSE REPUBLICANS TO UNSEAT IN 2022

“Dividers” list features 13 Republican Representatives working to overturn elections, spread conspiracies and undermine democracy.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Oct 27th, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – Leaders of the Renew America Movement today released a list of top Republican targets in the 2022 election. Dubbed “The Dividers,” the list includes 13 infamous conspiracy theorists, overt white nationalists, and prominent election deniers – including members of House GOP leadership – who in various ways have posed a threat to a healthy democracy and a well-functioning republic. Unsurprisingly, many of these dividers are implicated in new reporting from Rolling Stone about Members of Congress planning events on January 6th.

Led by current and former Republicans, the Renew America Movement is the tip of the spear in the fight for the soul of the Republican party, uniquely positioned to challenge extremists from the center and the right. The RAM Dividers list comes after the release of the bipartisan “Renewers” candidate slate. As with the Renewers, RAM will campaign directly in these races. RAM is also actively recruiting and reaching out to primary opponents in order to build a network of principled opposition and provide honorable alternatives for voters.

“Much of the media attention has been given to those Republicans who wouldn’t bend the knee to the false party narratives – and their primary challengers from those who gleefully embrace those lies. But we also need to talk about the principled people opposing the worst scions of Trumpism in Congress. These extremists flourish in safe districts and hide behind party loyalty to avoid real challenges. RAM is flipping that script, and bringing principled opposition to their doorsteps.”

– Joel Searby, RAM National Political Director

“Liars, conspiracists, and authoritarians have no place in America’s politics today. But sadly, they have been given a free home in the modern Republican Party, and hold several seats at the head of the GOP table. RAM is mobilizing a principled movement to confront these dividers head on, and prove that their deceit and corruption won’t be tolerated by the American people. We will shine a bright light on them not from the progressive left but from the principled center – Republicans, independents and centrist Democrats who will not allow these dividers to go unchecked. ”

– Miles Taylor, RAM Co-Founder and Acting Executive Director
