On Sunday Upton went on Meet the Press to trash Republicans on his way out the door.
The Daily Mail reported:
Warring factions within the Republican Party could push the GOP into ‘troubled waters’ with less than seven months until the November midterm elections, a retiring lawmaker said on Sunday.
Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) was the fourth House GOP lawmaker to drop his re-election bid out of 10 who voted to impeach Donald Trump for the Capitol riot. Upton announced his retirement earlier this month.
Speaking to NBC News’ Meet the Press on Sunday, the veteran lawmaker suggested the growing influence of far-right voices in Congress was the most significant he’s seen since taking office.
