After working with Nancy Pelosi on impeachment, Liz Cheney is now the leader of the Never Trump faction in the GOP.
But what Liz Cheney just announced will leave you speechless.
That’s because Liz Cheney left jaws on the ground with one answer about leaving Congress.
When Liz Cheney voted with Nancy Pelosi on impeaching Donald Trump over false claims Donald Trump incited the January 6 riot at the Capitol, Cheney hoped that would break the dam in Trump’s support and lead to Republicans purging Trump and his voters from their ranks.
That gambit failed.
Since that point Cheney kept up her criticism of Trump despite her political standing eroding.
Polls showed Cheney’s favorability ratings in Wyoming collapsing and that Cheney trailed primary challenger State Senator Anthony Bouchard by double digits.
Facing dwindling political prospects in Congress, Cheney made major news at the House Republican retreat in Orlando by leaving the door open for a 2024 presidential campaign.
“I’m not ruling anything in or out — ever is a long time,” Cheney told a reporter for the New York Post.
Cheney spoke for establishment Republicans—and made a case for her own candidacy—everywhere claiming that any Republican that supported objecting to the 2020 election was disqualified from winning the GOP nomination.
“I think we have a huge number of interesting candidates, but I think that we’re going to be in a good position to be able to take the White House. I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view that’s disqualifying,” Cheney added.
“I think that adherence to the Constitution, adherence to your oath has got to be at the top of the list. So, I think, you know that certainly will be a factor that I’m looking at and I think a number of voters will be looking at as they decide about ‘24,” Cheney continued.
Cheney told the Washington Examiner that President Trump contesting the 2020 election meant he could not serve as the GOP standard bearer in 2024.
“I don’t think that that’s going to happen,” Cheney explained when asked if Trump would be the party’s nominee in the next election. “And I think it’s important that it not happen, given what he did.”
There is no question that establishment Republicans like Liz Cheney that support open borders, endless wars and globalist trade deals will make a strong bid to win back control of the Republican Party.
But they will need a candidate to make that happen.
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan is far too liberal.
Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is a chameleon like Mitt Romney who vacillates between praising Trump to win over his supporters and bashing Trump to win the adulation of the corporate media.
That leaves the Never Trump establishment searching for a candidate.
Will they settle on Liz Cheney?
