( – Utah Gov. Spencer Cox (R) has argued that he does not believe former Reps. Adam Kinzinger (IL) and Liz Cheney (WY) are changing any “hearts and minds.” 

During an interview on Politico’s “Playbook Deep Dive” podcast, Cox argued that he doubts that the two were changing anyone’s mind. Instead, he argued that the two have attempted to portray all those who are supportive of the former President as being exactly like him instead of making any effort to understand them. 

The two Representatives had been among the 10 House GOP lawmakers who had voted in favor of Trump being impeached after the Jan. 6th, 2021, Capitol attack. They had also both participated in the House Jan. 6th special subcommittee that led the investigations on the attack. 

Cox argued during the podcast that he does not view himself as a “MAGA Republican” but that he was someone who wanted to see Trump “succeed.” He added that he always tries to point out that he is not against the former President, but that he does have issues with some of the actions he has taken, while also he loves other things that he has done. 

Kinzinger has endorsed President Joe Biden in the reelection bid however, following Thursday’s first presidential debate where Biden had a weak performance, he argued that the Democrats needed to find the best possible candidate that would be able to defend democracy. 

When CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer had asked Kinzinger if he thinks Biden should step aside, Kinzinger argued that he would not go there as it is going to be a “messy process.”
