Liz Cheney Sells Out Own Party
Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., has said that she is not sure about whether it would be preferable for the Democrats to hold their House of Representatives majority in the upcoming midterm elections. She has argued that some of the threats posed by those Republicans who were willing to challenge the 2020 presidential elections might be more dangerous than having representatives with different views on policies.
In a statement during the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin on Saturday, Cheney said that it is clear that some of the policies of the Biden administration are bad, and that they have led to increased inflation and government spending. However, she also added that it was important for people to also think about how it would affect the House of Representatives if election deniers, like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, and Jim Jordan would affect the people if a Republican majority was achieved.
Cheney was only one of 10 House Republicans who voted for Trump to be impeached. She is also now the vice chair of the Jan. 6 committee. Cheney was defeated in the Republican primary by Harriet Hageman.
Republicans are currently expected to get a 13-seat majority in the upcoming midterm elections according to Fox News Power Rankings. House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy also predicted last month that the House of Representatives would be won by the GOP.
Cheney has often spoken up against Republicans who have questioned the results of the 2020 election, including Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano, and Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake.
To conclude her statement, Cheney also said that she would do everything in her power to ensure Trump cannot run again for the 2024 election cycle.
