Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a 43-year-old Air Force veteran, always assumed that there would a "career-ending" vote he would have to take. But according to a New York Times profile, Kinzinger assumed it would be about Social Security instead. After the attack on the U.S Capitol Jan. 6, it became clear what he would have to do.

"I made the decision early in my career that I would be willing to take a potentially career-ending vote," he told the Times. "But I thought that vote would be for something like a Social Security reform bill. I never thought it would be for defending democracy."

He explained that things have changed because there is so much mistrust, and since Jan. 6 not many other Republicans have joined him.
