Adam Kinzinger – Political Maverick

Political Call Sign: Maverick

The issue of this week’s Political Happy Hour is Party Loyalty and the question is, is there room for a so-called political maverick in today’s hyper-partisan politics?

Anthony sits out this episode of Political Playlist Happy Hour, letting fellow east-coasters Michael and Anna hash out the viability of today’s leading political maverick: Adam Kinzinger.

You may know him as the Republican who voted to impeach Trump, or the one who’s for banning assault rifles, or perhaps you know him because he actually did have a call sign as an Combat Air Force Pilot in Iraq. And hey, he just may even be you congressman if you live in Illinois’ 16th.

But rest assured, despite the fact that he isn’t running for reelection in November, it is very safe to say we have not seen the last of this Republican Maverick.
