WASHINGTON – Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) has been named to the Top 100 NEXT 2021 list of influential people for the year. The Congressman has seen an increased spotlight put on him after becoming one of 10 House members to vote to impeach President Trump for his role in the Capitol riots January 6th last month.

Kinzinger was nominated to the list by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, who told CNN earlier this year he “would have” voted to convict the former President.

“In the wake of the insurrection at the Capitol in January, Adam was the first Republican member of Congress to step forward and call for the removal of President Trump from office via the 25th Amendment. In standing up for what he believed was right, Adam proved the measure of his courage.” Hogan wrote.

Earlier this week, Kinzinger was censured by the LaSalle County’s Republican Central Committee and Iroquois County GOP for his vote on impeachment.

The Illinois Congressman is joined on the list by fellow politicians Raphael Warnock and Ben Sasse, along with Clemson Quarterback Trevor Lawrence, Dallas PG Luka Doncic, and National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman.
