Michael Wood, a Republican whose anti-Donald Trump message resulted in a crushing defeat in a special election for a Texas US House seat over the weekend, said the party is compromising its values by spreading the former president's falsehoods.

Washington (CNN)Michael Wood, a Republican whose anti-Donald Trump message resulted in a crushing defeat in a special election for a Texas US House seat over the weekend, said the party is compromising its values by spreading the former president's falsehoods.

Wood, who received roughly 3% of the vote, has called for Republicans to reject the former President and stop pushing conspiracy theories like the 2020 election was stolen and QAnon.

Wood's loss is indicative of how firmly Trump's hold remains on the Republican Party as it eyes regaining control in Washington and deals with continued party infighting over whether to fall in line behind the former President or return to traditional party ideals.

Wood, who called himself a "once-proud Republican," told Berman that elected officials in leadership positions should "act like leaders.

Mitt Romney -- all whom have broken away from Trump.
