Is Adam Kinzinger a Republican or a Democrat?

Former US rep Adam Kinzinger is a member of the Republican Party.

Back in 2013, Kinzinger assumed office as a member of the US House, representing Illinois' 16th Congressional District.

His term officially came to an end on January 3, 2023.

When his time in Congress came to an end, Kinzinger told his Twitter followers: "I’m not going to miss the job. I’m glad I’m not going to be back.

"It gives me time to focus on broader things, bigger fights.

"In order to break the narrative, I cannot focus on both a real election to Congress and a broader fight nationwide.

"I want to make clear, this isn’t the end of my political future but the beginning."

On Wednesday, January 4, CNN revealed they hired Kinzinger as a Senior Political Commentator.

When did Kinzinger join the Jan 6 committee?

On July 25, 2021, Nancy Pelosi announced Kinzinger was nominated to join the January 6 committee.

Kinzinger's nomination to the committee comes after Pelosi rejected two of the five Republican nominees offered by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Following the rejections, McCarthy revoked all of his appointments and threatened to form his own committee after she rejected them based on their history with former president Donald Trump.

Kinzinger was one of the outspoken Republicans who voted for his second impeachment.

Rep Liz Cheney of Wyoming was one of the lone Republicans that Pelosi had appointed previously.

Pelosi was then asked on ABC's This Week if she had planned on appointing more members.

Pelosi replied, "that would be my plan."

"[Kinzinger] and other Republicans have expressed an interest to serve on the select committee and I wanted to appoint three of the members Leader McCarthy suggested but he withdrew their names," Pelosi told the media outlet.

Following her her nomination, Kinzinger announced to his followers that he would accept the position.

"For months we have searched for answers and what process we should use to get them," he stated. "For months, lies and conspiracy theories have been spread, threatening our self-governance."

"Today I was asked by the Speaker to serve on the House Select Committee to Investigate January 6th and I humbly accepted. I will work diligently to ensure we get to the truth and hold those responsible for the attack fully accountable," Kinzinger concluded.

Who is Adam Kinzinger?

Born on February 27, 1978, Kinzinger is an American military officer and politician.

Kinzinger was an active member until 2011, when he then went into politics.

In February 2020, Kinzinger married his wife, Sofia Boza-Holman, the former director of strategic media for former Vice President Mike Pence.
