The Republican Party is eager to win future elections, vote Democrats out of power, and restore the GOP. After disappointing presidential and Senate runoff elections, Republicans are looking to regain majority control in both the House of Representatives and the Senate next year.
However, many Republicans view removing RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) and Never Trumpers as key parts of collectively restoring the GOP. Hence, the ten House Republicans who voted alongside Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time earlier this month are now virtually guaranteed to face primary challenges.
Breaking developments from Newsmax confirm that President Trump will be working to help primary Never Trump Republicans.
Getting RINOs and Never Trumpers Out of Office
Believe it or not, congressional campaigns and races are not that far away. As the time for House and Senate elections gets nearer and nearer, the 45th president will be involved. Trump may no longer be president, but he’ll still be politically active; just some of the ways that Trump can involve himself in these races include holding rallies, fundraising, and giving endorsements.

Can't call yourself bipartisan & unifying when you govern via Executive Order…

Needless to say, the 45th president won’t be backing Republicans like Liz Cheney and others who voted for his impeachment. Many other congressional conservatives are also not too fond of the RINOs and Never Trumpers within the GOP; these individuals are likeliest to face — and subsequently lose to — primary challengers.
Winning Back Congressional Majorities
Republicans are just within arm’s length of regaining their congressional majorities in the House and Senate.
In the House, the GOP needs only five more seats to become the majority and thus oust Pelosi as the Speaker of the House. This is something Republicans have wanted for quite some time; should the GOP take back the House next year, there’s a very high likelihood of Leader Kevin McCarthy becoming the next House Speaker.
Every day for the next four years, Americans must measure policy proposals from the Biden Administration against a simple question: will it help Americans in need?
So far, there are a few that could be met with yes. But most flatly do not.

Republicans will need at least one more Senate seat in order to regain the majority in this congressional body. Should the GOP retake the Senate majority, Chuck Schumer will return to being the Senate Minority Leader, while Mitch McConnell regains his position as the Senate Majority Leader.
Trump has reportedly told those closest to him that getting back both GOP congressional majorities is a priority.
