Rusty Bowers Said He’d Still Vote For Trump Even After Jan 6th Testimony. Now Trump Has Endorsed His Rival.

Rusty Bowers Said He’d Still Vote For Trump Even After Jan 6th Testimony. Now Trump Has Endorsed His Rival.

Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers gave powerful testimony to the January 6th House Select Committee last week, recounting Donald Trump’s use of intimidation to get him to commit election fraud to allow him to remain in power. Bowers refused to go along with the fake electors scheme, and testified to wanting to see proof of the fraud, which of course never came. His emotional and compelling testimony as he recalled the pressure he faced from Trump and his allies, including angry and noisy protests outside his home as his adult daughter lay dying inside from an extended illness, drew compassion and acclaim nationwide.

But those same people who praised Bowers were also more than a little shocked when he told the Associated Press soon after that he would vote for Trump again in 2024. However, once you cross Trump, there are no words to smooth it over, and Bowers is now on the receiving end of another kind of targeted campaign against him.

Bowers is blocked by term limits from seeking another term in the Arizona House and is running for an open seat in the state Senate. On Wednesday, Trump praised Bowers’ GOP primary rival, former Sen. David Farnsworth, for supporting the lie that the 2020 election was marred by fraud. “Bowers must be defeated, and highly respected David Farnsworth is the man to do it,” Trump said in his endorsement. “He will straighten things out and secure your Border.”

Bowers also clarified his remarks about Trump, saying that Trump’s actions have hurt the nation and created distrust in elections, which he said are fair. He also said he was “floored” while hearing firsthand what Trump did to other officials, including pushing Georgia Secretary of State Brad Brad Raffensperger to find the 11,000 votes Trump would need to reverse his loss there.
