She won’t be getting anymore government check’s come January…..
She IS NOT gonna stop going after her parties leader for his illegalities ….
For the outgoing Wyoming Republican House member the question now is how?
There is even talk of a possible Presidential run ….
But THAT seems to be something doomed to failure…
Could an anti-Trump be the answer for her?
She is added to the long list of women Donald Trump has dissed….
Of the Ten Republicans that voted to impeach Donald Trump?
Only two look like they’ll keep their jobs in Congress….
Rep. Liz Cheney lost her GOP primary in Wyoming Tuesday night, falling to a Donald Trump-endorsed challenger after becoming a vocal Republican dissident against the former president following the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
Cheney, who was seeking a fourth term, was defeated by Harriet Hageman, an attorney and former Cheney supporter who Trump selected last year as his chosen candidate to oppose her. Cheney’s vote to impeach Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection, her vocal defense of that vote and her leadership role on the House committee investigating the attacks and Trump’s actions made her Trump’s top political target in the midterms.
She made her opposition to Trump, whom she has repeatedly described as a threat to democracy, a core part of her political identity — and it consigned her to double-digit defeat in heavily pro-Trump Wyoming. But Cheney, who conceded to Hageman on Tuesday evening, signaled she wasn’t going away, telling supporters that Tuesday night was just the beginning.
“I have said since Jan. 6 that I will do whatever it takes to ensure that Donald Trump is never again anywhere near the Oval Office, and I mean it,” Cheney said at the close of her speech. “This is a fight for all of us together.”
Hailing from a state that voted for Donald Trump by more than 40 percentage points in 2020, Cheney is an often-lonely face of intra-party resistance against the former president. On Tuesday night, she cast her fight for the soul of her party as an existential one — repeatedly invoking the Civil War and President Abraham Lincoln as a model, while chastising Republican office-seekers who have followed Trump….
“This primary election is over, but now the real work begins,” she said. “It has been said that the long arc of history bends toward justice and freedom. That’s true, but only if we make it bend.”
It comes as her team takes increasing control over her anti-Trump message. Her campaign ducked most press when she was casting her ballot, heading at the last minute to a different polling place across town from where most of the media was camped out.
In lieu of the typical media coverage of a candidate casting a ballot, Cheney played pick-and-choose with news outlets: CBS News got advance notice to set up a location 15 minutes away at the Teton County Library with a camera and correspondent ready. Cheney later tweeted her own take on the moment, adding a veiled shot at Trump: “The challenges we are facing require serious leaders who will abide by their oath and uphold the Constitution- no matter what.”….
As her state’s pro-Trump GOP electorate prepares to give her the boot, she’s turning to a merry-go-round of legacy media outlets to help burnish her brand of opposition to the former president’s baseless lies about a stolen election.
Cheney also signaled that she will be going after not just Trump but his enablers within the Republican Party.
