Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney is on her way out of Washington at the end of the year, but she may also be on her way out of the Republican Party, too.
Well, we should say “the national Republican Party”, as Cheney has already been booted from the Wyoming GOP on account of her anti-Trump drivel.
In fact, it could be Trump that forces Liz to quit the Republican Party altogether, according to a new threat from the soon-to-be-unemployed lawmaker.
Network congressional reporter Daniella Diaz said, “She had a lot to say to say indeed. One of them being a question being whether she would run for president in 2024 against former President Donald Trump. She, of course, dodged that question as she has continued to dodge that question since she lost the primary. She will not serve in the next Congress. But really notable, as you all said, that she said if Donald Trump wins the nomination in 2024, she will no longer consider herself a Republican. Take a listen.”
There was no denying Cheney’s sentiment.
Cheney said, “I think that Donald Trump is the only president in American history who refused to guarantee a peaceful transition of power. And so the fact that my party in the months since then has refused to stand up to him I think, does tell you how sick the party is. I’m going to make sure Donald Trump is not the nominee, and if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.”
Cheney was soundly defeated in the Wyoming 2022 primaries by a Trump-backed candidate; one of many such vicarious victories for the former President in the midterms.
