The Lincoln Project is an American political action committee formed in late 2019 by several current & former Republicans.The goal of the committee is to prevent the reelection of Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election & defeat his supporters in the United States Senate.
The committee was announced on December 17, 2019, in a New York Times op-ed by George Conway, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson. Other co-founders include Jennifer Horn, Ron Steslow, Reed Galen, and Mike Madrid.
Conway is an attorney and the husband of Kellyanne Conway, at the time an advisor to Trump; Schmidt managed John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, Weaver oversaw McCain's presidential campaign in 2000, and Wilson is a media consultant.
All four are outspoken critics of Trump; Schmidt left the Republican Party in 2018. 😅😅😅🚩😅😅😅
Jennifer Rubin, in a Washington Post op-ed, described the four founders as "Some of the most prominent NeverTrump Republicans."

The committee is named for Abraham Lincoln, a Republican who fought to keep the country unified. On February 27, 1860, Lincoln delivered his Cooper Union speech in Manhattan during his campaign to be the first Republican president. [ The Lincoln Project 👇 ]
The group was outspoken in their criticism of Trump & the current divide in the 🐘 party, with Madrid saying that "two views cannot exist in one party" & Steslow saying he will "vote blue no matter who." 🚩🤔🙄
Schmidt warned that a second term with Trump would be "unrestrained and validated."
April 15, 2020, endorsing the presidential candidacy of former Vice Pres Biden, writing: "We’ve never backed a Democrat for president. But Trump must be defeated." The op-ed argued that Trump was unqualified to deal with the 🇨🇳 virus pandemic, & the ensuing economic downturn.

Jeff Timmer, a former executive director of the Michigan 🐘 Party, is an adviser to the project.
On June 2, 2020, the project announced the release of their podcast, Republicans Defeating Trump (later renamed The Lincoln Project), hosted by Ron Steslow.🙄
On August 23, 2020, Kellyanne Conway announced that she was leaving her White House position to spend more time with her family. At the same time, George Conway announced that he was withdrawing from The Lincoln Project for similar reasons.
