Lauf’s new hired gun has stated Republicans who did not stand strong with Donald Trump when he was President would get a strong primary challenger
Early Monday, POLITICO broke the story of Republican candidate for IL-16 Catalina Lauf hiring Alex Bruesewitz, co-founder and CEO of Washington, D.C.-based X Strategies, will help her run her primary campaign challenging Congressman Adam Kinzinger in the 2022 Republican primary.
“We are running our campaign as we would a startup.
“I’m proud to build out my team with those who are disrupting the establishment political consulting class, who support President Trump, and who are loyal to the America First movement which lifted up all Americans.”Catalina Lauf, 3/8/21
Lauf’s new hired gun stated stated on January 5 at a rally:
“When we say every Republican that does not stand strong with the president will get a primary challenger,…it means is we will make them spend their money. And we will urge their donors to not support them.”Alex Bruesewitz, 1/5/21
Today, Bruesewitz tweeted the following concerning Kinzinger:
From the desk of John Lopez: Some detractors have pointed to Bruesewitz’s involvement at a “Stop the Steal” rally, and words about a “civil war” resulting from a rigged and stolen election. As POLITICO documented this morning, Bruesewitz has forcefully condemned violence, including the Capitol Riots of January 6. By all indications, Lauf has made a credible business decision and showing everyone her campaign means business to successfully primary Kinzinger from his seat next year.
