Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz urged anti-Trump Republican Adam Kinzinger (IL) to "bring" him after he named Gaetz as a target for his newly formed PAC.
Well, he actually used a slightly more colorful terminology.
Gaetz, who was elected to Congress for the first time in 2016, has quickly become one of the biggest supporters of former President Donald Trump.
In a late-night tweet on Wednesday, the Florida Republican first praised Kinzinger for his military service before clarifying that he wasn't afraid of a fight.
“Adam is a patriot who fought for America from northwest Florida. We will always appreciate (and honor) his service, ”wrote Gatez.
"Now he wants to target my America First policy and call me by my name," he added. "My answer: Damn it, bring it."

Damn it, bring it.
Adam needs PACs to win elections.
Not me. https://t.co/TE9TPt6QJv

GOP civil war: Matt Gaetz defends himself against Adam Kinzinger
Matt Gaetz responded to an article published by The Hill in which Adam Kinzinger announced a new PAC that he claims is fighting to take back Trump's GOP.
Kinzinger went on the offensive against Gaetz and recently punished Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
"Oh, there's a huge list. … I mean, look, all you have to do is see people like Marjorie Taylor Greene. You see people like Matt Gaetz who know better," said Kinzinger. "I guess none of them believe the stuff they attribute, they just want fame. "
Ironically, considering that the only reason anyone knows Kinzinger's name is because they're willing to face the liberal media by attacking Donald Trump.

Kinzinger voted to indict Trump, one of ten Republicans in the house, which made him a poor man's Mitt Romney. Or a stupid man's Ben Sasse, depending on how you look at it.
"The party that always talked about a brighter morning no longer does," he said. “Instead, it's about a dark future. Hope has given way to fear. Outrage has replaced the opportunity. And the worst part is that our deep beliefs are being ignored. "
“This is not Republican Road, and now we know exactly where this new and dangerous road is going. This leads to riots and an armed attack on the Capitol, ”suggested Kinzinger.

Gaetz is leading the way
Gaetz led the indictment in the GOP's civil war against anti-Trump Republicans.
Gaetz actually traveled to Wyoming for a rally where he ripped off Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), another Republican campaigner for impeachment.
There he suggested that Cheney had only done two things in Congress to "thwart President (Donald) Trump's agenda and sell it to the eternal war machine."
Cheney and Sasse (R-NE) have been censored by their own party in various counties for their anti-Trump actions.
And many Republicans who campaigned for Democrats in the House face other problems.
Of the 10 House members who voted for impeachment, seven, including Cheney, already have primary challengers.
The Senate Republicans have seen their own controversy. Six of them voted alongside the Democrats on Tuesday to confirm the impeachment process is constitutional.
