Kyle Rittenhouse Teases Future Congressional Run as He Meets with House Republicans in DC

On November 17, 2021, Kyle Rittenhouse didn’t know if he would be a free young man in the coming days or face jail for self-defense.

A year later, Rittenhouse posted a photo of the US Capitol and suggested he could make it there when he was old enough.

Rittenhouse had his photo taken in front of the Capitol and shared it on Twitter Thursday with the caption, “T-minus 5 years til I call this place my office?” He also shared a photo of himself at the Lincoln Memorial.

The minimum age for a Congress member is 25 years. Rittenhouse, who was born in 2003, could run for Congress in 2028.

Rittenhouse, whose November 19, 2021 acquittal shook the nation, visited Washington Thursday for a Second Amendment event.

According to The Hill, he met lawmakers and gun rights supporters at the Conservative Partnership Institute’s office near the Capitol, where he shared his experiences and answered questions from those in attendance.

“[Rittenhouse] is a powerful example of why we must never give an inch on our Second Amendment rights, and his perseverance and love for our country has been an inspiration to the group,” Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert said in a statement. Boebert is co-chairing the House Second Amendment Caucus with Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky, who also attended the event.

In a tweet, Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia called Rittenhouse “a true Second Amendment advocate.”

Rittenhouse issued a statement about his pride and joy at having been invited to the event.

“I’m 19 and I just spoke to leaders from the greatest country on earth! This was an amazing evening sharing my story and discussing the importance of the Second Amendment,” he said. “Even as the far left continues to sue me and slander my name, I know these great leaders have my back.”

Rittenhouse faced various charges in connection with the shooting dead of three men, two of whom were fatal, during the August 2020 riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

After one of the most prominent trials in American history, the jury found Rittenhouse not guilty of all charges.

In an interview in January, Rittenhouse spoke about his faith.

“God was with me from the beginning,” he said. “My connection to God has become much stronger. I pray to him every day. He’s helped me through so much and he’s helped open the doors and point me in the right direction.”
