Don versus Don as Nebraska Rep. Bacon dismisses former president's primary threats


Rep. Don Bacon is shrugging off former President Donald Trump’s attempt to oust him over his support for President Joe Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure bill, declaring in an interview with the Washington Examiner: “I am not a ‘yes’ man.”

The Nebraska Republican does not consider himself a Trump foe. Bacon rarely, if ever, criticizes the former president: He twice opposed impeaching him, including in the aftermath of the ransacking of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, and supported his agenda on the House floor more than 89% of the time. But the congressman defied Trump on the $1 trillion infrastructure law, prompting the former president to encourage Republicans to challenge him in Nebraska’s May primary.
