On Wednesday, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney revealed she is considering a 2024 presidential campaign after soundly losing a Republican primary to a challenger backed by former President Donald Trump.
Cheney told NBC that Trump is “a grave threat and risk to our republic” and said defeating him will require “a broad and united front of Republicans, Democrats, and independents — and that’s what I intend to be part of.”
She said running for president is something she is seriously considering.
She sees her primary loss on Tuesday night as the start of a new chapter in her political career as she speaks to a small group of supporters, including her father, on the edge of a vast field surrounded by mountains and hay bales.
“Our work is far from over,” Cheney said.
According to reports, with Cheney’s loss, Republicans who voted to impeach Trump are going extinct.
The latest data shows that seven Republican senators and 10 Republican House members backed Trump’s impeachment in the days after his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress tried to certify President Joe Biden’s victory. J
It was learned that just two of those 10 House members had won their primaries this year.
