(CNN)Allies of Illinois GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger have launched a super PAC to support Republicans in 2022 who stood up to then-President Donald Trump after a mob of his supporters attacked the US Capitol in an effort to overturn the 2020 election.

The organizers of the new group, Americans Keeping Country First, said in a memo that they want to "build a potent political operation that provides a counterweight to far-right candidates and groups that threaten primary campaigns against principled House Republican members. "

"In 2022, AKCF will focus on defending Republican members of Congress who took a vote of conscience in favor of impeaching or convicting President Trump," the organizers wrote.

The organizers of the new super PAC, which can raise and spend unlimited amounts, also plan to start a political nonprofit arm to support their work.

The new Kinzinger-aligned super PAC filed with the Federal Election Commission on Saturday, a day before Trump went to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, and called out by name the 17 Republicans who voted to impeach or convict him, including Kinzinger.

Kinzinger, one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump, has sought to steer a new course for his party.
