Liz Cheney Is on the Warpath Making Threats…Watch

Liz Cheney lost her seat in the House of Representatives in last month’s Wyoming primary elections. She did not just lose, it was a landslide loss to Harriet Hageman, a Trump-backed candidate. Cheney was beaten by a massive 37.4 points, it was the second worst defeat for a House incumbent in the last 60 years. 

Even though Cheney lost so badly with GOP voters, she is still trying to use what little influence she has in the Party to change the GOP’s direction. 

Cheney showed up at the Texas Tribune Festival this past weekend and threatened to leave the Republican Party if former President Donald Trump becomes the GOP’s 2024 presidential nominee. 

“I’m gonna make sure Donald Trump — I’m gonna do everything I can to make sure he’s not the nominee,” Cheney said. “And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.”

Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith asked Cheney if she is considering running for president to prevent Trump from seeking a 2nd term. The congresswoman answered, “I certainly will do whatever it takes to make sure Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office. Knowing what I know now, I would not have voted for Donald Trump.”

Cheney is not just satisfied with going against Trump, she’s also after candidates that he has supported. She promised to do everything she can to make sure Kari Lake is not elected in Arizona’s gubernatorial race. 

She also said that people should do whatever it takes in 2022 to make sure Trump’s people, like Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano, don’t get elected. 

Kari Lake responded to Cheney’s attack on Fox News on Sunday morning. 

“That might be the biggest, best gift I have ever received,” Lake jokingly told host Maria Bartiromo. “I mean, the people in Wyoming can’t stand her, I’m pretty much sure the people of Arizona don’t like Liz Cheney.”
