Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Liz Cheney (WY)

Answer: Lost in Primary

Cheney, the daughter of former vice president Richard Cheney, was soundly defeated by Harriet Hageman in the August 16, 2022 primary by a 66 to 28 percent margin.

Cheney was first elected to Congress in 2016. She rose quite rapidly, becoming Chair of the House Republican Conference in 2019. She was stripped of her position due to her opposition to Donald Trump and her questioning the Trump administration as a member of the January 6 Commission.
2. Peter Meijer (MI)

Answer: Lost in Primary

Meijer, the scion of the grocery store family, was elected in 2020 when Justin Amash (another critic of Donald Trump) left office. Voting to impeach Trump was one of Meijer's first votes.

Meijer was defeated by Trump supporter John Gibbs on August 2, 2022, in a close 52 to 48 race.
3. Jamie Herrera Beutler (WA)

Answer: Lost in Primary

Beutler was first elected to Congress in 2010. She was defeated by Trump endorsee Joe Kent and Democrat Marie Gluesenkamp Perez in the August 2022 primary. She finished third to Perez (31 percent) and Kent (22.8 percent). Beutler finished 1059 votes shy of making the November ballot.
4. Tom Rice (SC)

Answer: Lost in Primary

Rice was first elected to Congress in 2012. He lost to State Representative Russell Fry in the June 14, 2022 primary 51 to 24 percent. Trump crowed about Rice's loss the day after the election. Rice has made no apologies about holding Trump accountable for his actions on January 6, 2021.
5. Adam Kinzinger (IL)

Answer: Did Not Run

Kinzinger was one of two Republicans named to the January 6 committee, along with Cheney. He was first elected in 2010 and was generally among the few moderates in the Republican Caucus. Kinzinger's district was redrawn so that he would have had to compete against Rep. Darrin LaHood, and Kinzinger announced that he would not be running for re-election at the end of October 2021.
6. Anthony Gonzalez (OH)

Answer: Did Not Run

Gonzalez was elected to the House in 2018. Before getting into politics, he was a wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts (2007-11). He does have an MBA from Stanford. In September 2021, Gonzalez announced he would step down at the end of his current term. Hardcore Trump supporter Max Miller announced that he would run to replace him.
7. Fred Upton (MI)

Answer: Did Not Run

Upton was the veteran of the anti-Trump Republicans. He was first elected in 1987 and holds the distinction of being the only US Representative to vote to impeach two presidents: Bill Clinton in 1998 and Trump in 2021. In April 2022, Upton announced he would not be running for re-election. Rep. Bill Huizenga is likely to take up much of what was Upton's district following re-districting.

And yes, Fred is related to supermodel Kate Upton. She is his niece.
8. John Katko (NY)

Answer: Did Not Run

Rep. Katko was elected in 2014. During the Trump administration, he was a fairly consistent vote against Trump administration policies (among a handful of Republicans). Katko, whose district was substantially redrawn and moved much farther west, announced he would not run for re-election in January 2022.
9. Dan Newhouse (WA)

Answer: On the Ballot in November

Dan Newhouse managed to survive the Trump purge and was scheduled to face off against Democrat Doug White in November 2022. In Washington's all-way primary on August 9, Newhouse received 25.5%, White got 25.1 percent, and Trump-supported candidate Loren Culp got 21.6 percent.

Newhouse was in the Washington state legislature and headed up the state's Department of Agriculture before being elected to Congress in 2014.
10. David Valadao (CA)

Answer: On the Ballot in November

David Valadao was first elected to Congress in 2012, winning re-election in 2014 and 2016 before falling to TJ Cox in the Democratic sweep of 2018. Valadao took on Cox in a rematch in 2020 and won by 1700 votes, 50.4 to 49.6 percent.

In California's jungle primary on June 7, Valadao faced two Republicans, Chris Mathys and Adam Medeiros. Valdao received 25.6%, Medeiros 23.4% and Mathys 5.8%. Democratic State Representative Rudy Salas received 45.2 percent. Interestingly enough, Trump did not endorse either of Valadao's opponents.
