WATCH: GOP Gov. Hutchinson Says Party Looking For an Off-Ramp From Trump

This week, the 1/6 committee held its first televised hearings on the insurrection. While they will present compelling evidence, it is unlikely that it will have an effect on Republican voters. Fox News refused to even air the hearing.

But winning elections is about convincing voters in the middle to back your party. And if Independents won’t vote for Trump, the Republicans can’t win. As a result, Asa Hutchison says that the party is looking for an off-ramp from Trump.

The Arkansas Governor told Bret Baier, “I hope that the future of the Republican Party is different than former President Trump’s leadership,” the governor said. “I hope we move in a different direction. I believe that what happened on Jan. 6 is a lot at his feet. It was wrong for our country and for him to continue to push that [election lie] theory, I agree, is the wrong direction for the Republican Party.”

Hutchinson continued:

“There’s many Republicans that are looking for an off-ramp, new opportunities [to] define leadership in the future. And obviously what President Trump, there’s a lot of things that he did that were very good that the base and I agree with but he got off track on Jan. 6 and that was a costly error for our democracy and I agree with a lot of the comments that he has responsibility there and we need to make sure that’s clear.”
