Will Liz Cheney ever get over her Trump Derangement Syndrome?
Over the weekend, she announced that if Donald Trump is the GOP presidential nominee in 2024, she will leave the Republican Party.
Most people thought she left it a long time ago!
The Republican representative from Wyoming made an appearance at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin on Saturday. She was happy to discuss her efforts to stop Trump and the Republican nominee in Arizona’s gubernatorial race, Kari Lake.
When asked about the speculation surrounding the possibility of running for the highest office in the land, she was not interested in elaborating. “It’s not about me or making a decision about what I’m going to do,” she said.
“I certainly will do whatever it takes to make sure Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office,” she said.
“I’m going to make sure Donald Trump, make sure he’s not the nominee,” Cheney went on. “And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.”
Cheney voted to impeach Trump following the January 6th Capitol riot and she serves as co-chair of the House select committee. The committee is investigating the events surrounding the riot on that day.
Cheney believes that we as a country must ensure that we always have peaceful transfers of power. She said, “What are we going to do to make sure that our kids know what it means to have peaceful transfers of power? And what are we going to do to make sure that we don’t contribute to the unraveling of the republic? … That’s what I’m focused on.”
Cheney lost her bid for reelection in the Republican primary in Wyoming in August. Her challenger, Harriet Hageman, was a Trump-endorsed candidate and won the race in a landslide, 66% to 29%.
Hageman is another GOP candidate that Cheney vows not to support. In fact, she’s gone so far as to say she’ll campaign for Democrats in some races.
“I am going to do everything I can to make sure that Kari Lake is not elected,” she said. When asked if that meant campaigning for the Democrat, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, Cheney replied: “Yes, it does.”
On the plus side, Cheney didn’t go so far as to say that she’s rooting for Democrats to hold onto a majority in the House of Representatives after the midterm elections.
She agrees that there are a lot of “bad policies” coming out of the Biden Administration, but added some words of caution. “I think it’s really important though, as voters are going to vote, that they recognize and understand what the Republican Conference consists of in the House of Representatives today.”
That’s her way of saying she doesn’t approve of the “America First” Republican candidates. Some of those candidates, especially Kari Lake, consider that a major endorsement.
