The Raleigh News & Observer reports:
U.S. Rep. Ted Budd called his House colleagues Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger “divisive” Wednesday and said their work on the Jan. 6 committee is getting in the way of “freedom-loving Americans.”
Budd is currently seeking North Carolina’s open U.S. Senate seat in the 2022 election and is facing off against former Gov. Pat McCrory, former U.S. Rep. Mark Walker and political newcomer Marjorie Eastman. Former President Donald Trump has endorsed Budd.
“Well, I’ll tell you what, Liz (Cheney) and Adam Kinzinger have really been so divisive, you know, with this false moralism. They are trying to, you know, save something that didn’t need to be saved. It’s a false narrative.”

Budd appeared on JMG last summer when he launched his Senate campaign by posing with an assault weapon and a “Liberal Agenda Crusher” monster truck.

This is Ted Budd, Donald Trump’s handpicked candidate for NC’s Senate race. A stain you can’t remove. He will be facing Cheri Beasley, former Chief Justice of NC. This is a race all Americans should follow and help Cheri if you can! #Resistance #StrongerTogether pic.twitter.com/sxaBqIhY2z

Ted Budd Sez: “Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger played right into the Democrats’ trap, and has made it tougher on freedom-loving Republicans, than if they had just stayed away from Nancy Pelosi’s highly partisan, highly selfish trap.” pic.twitter.com/ZQ9cPy2AOK
