Liz Cheney: “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.”
She’s out, and she’s not happy. It’s important to note that Rep. Liz Cheney will still be a Republican and will still be in Congress despite today’s vote to oust her from Republican leadership.
Wyoming’s voters will get the chance to re-elect Cheney or someone else in 2022 at the midterm election. It seems likely that Cheney will face a primary challenge if she decides to run again. She currently faces multiple primary challengers for her House seat, including Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr.
House Republicans, who ousted Cheney by voice vote behind closed doors on Capitol Hill, are expected to replace her with New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, who has a less conservative voting record than Cheney but has emerged as one of Trump’s top defenders. Cheney had a few choice words for her fellow Republicans and lashed out at Donald Trump in the video below.
So exactly what can Liz Cheney do to ensure Trump is not elected in 2024? Run against him in the primary of course.
Don’t forget her comments back in April. When asked if she plans on running for president she told the New York Post, “I’m not ruling anything in or out — ever is a long time.”
Good luck with that Liz. The fact is the Republican Party is no longer the home of squishy, neo-cons promoting endless wars for the military industrial complex and your own personal enrichment. In the words of Bob Dylan, “The times they are a changin.”
Now don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
