The ad is set to run nationally on â€œFox & Friendsâ€ next week â€• reportedly one of Trumpâ€™s favorite shows.
â€œThis ad shows the ridiculous lengths these Republicans will go to try to remain in Trumpâ€™s good graces,â€ Sarah Longwell, the organizationâ€™s executive director, said in a news release. â€œThey know Trumpâ€™s lies about the 2020 election and actions on January 6 were wrong, but they lack the courage to take a stand and say they wonâ€™t support him.â€
The Republican Accountability Project, a group of â€œnever Trumpâ€ conservatives, has been calling out members of the GOP who enabled the former president, especially during and after the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol that was carried out by his supporters. The group has taken out ads against House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) and others, and has vowed to support candidates who challenge Trumpâ€™s enablers in the primaries.
