Impeachment may complicate 2020 for Rep. Upton

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — Republican Rep. Fred Upton has easily won reelection to his southwest Michigan House seat for more than 30 years by touting his “common-sense values” and bipartisan accomplishments.

But then came the hyperpolarized politics of the Donald Trump era.

Now no one, including Upton, really knows what the future holds for him heading into the 2020 election.

With the impeachment storm sweeping U.S. politics, there are big questions for moderate lawmakers like Upton, who may be forced to accept a new identity: either pro-Trump or anti-Trump.

What happens to this ever-shrinking group of politicians could make a big difference in which party emerges on top.

Democrats are targeting Upton, who has not yet said if he’ll seek reelection or retire.

So in other words Upton plans to vote to impeach. That will open him up for a primary challenger.

Please Fred, retire. Your Consistent open borders & globalist votes do not represent your district.
