The paper is looks into the career development of the republican members of Congress who voted to overthrow the results of the 2020 presidential elections. This is to answer a bigger question if the US political system has responded to the new threat posed by a rising distrust to the elections results and disrespect of the power transit institute. The author collected data on the 2020 and 2022 midterm Republican primary elections results to compare how the politicians’ performance changed over two years. The analysis in the article proves that the vote had no effect on the political careers of the republicans: most of them were successfully reelected, in half of the cases even without any competition. This allows to conclude that the political system and GOP have not introduced any changes to address the issue of erosion of the notion of peaceful transit of power.
