Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Illinois), an outspoken Trump critic, will not seek re-election for his U.S. House seat. Kinzinger’s district was eliminated by Democrats in Illinois during the redistricting process.

In a video released last week, Kinzinger said: “I also remember during that campaign saying that if I ever thought it was time to move on from Congress, I would, and that time is now.”

Kinzinger, who was one of ten Republicans who voted to impeach Trump, has also been a firm critic of his own party, frequently calling out the spread of misinformation among fellow GOP members.

In his video, Kinzinger stated: “I cannot focus on both a reelection to Congress and a broader fight nationwide. I want to make it clear. This isn’t the end of my political future, but the beginning. Serving six terms in Congress has been an honor of a lifetime.”
