Former Trump appointee Catalina Lauf announced on Twitter today that she will primary Rep. Adam Kinzinger in Illinois’ 16th congressional district.

“Fake Republican Adam Kinzinger won’t put AMERICA FIRST — I will,” she tweeted along with an announcement video with the line, “He cares more about his next MSNBC appearance than the voters who elected him.”

Rep. Kininger, call your office.
