Even after aligning herself with the Dems on a partisan Jan. 6 Committee, globalist foreign policy, and gun control measures, in a New York Times interview Sunday, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) maintained that she is still a Wyoming Republican.
“If it means sacrificing my House seat in order to stand up for the Constitution, I’m prepared to pay that price,” she stated in the interview.
Cheney is adamant in her refusal to switch political parties, according to the news source. “I’m a Republican,” she stated before cautioning the GOP, “It’s continuing to drive itself into a ditch.” She continued, “I think it’ll take a few cycles if anything is going to be fixed.”
Some people do not share Cheney’s political viewpoint. “She’s so in bed with the Democrats, with Pelosi and all the others,” Bruce Hitt of Casper told to the Times.
Cheney’s ties to the establishment continue with the partisan January 6 Committee, which has tried to investigate the January 6 event without turning its attention to the reported FBI informants at the Capitol. Cheney was one of ten Republicans who voted for Trump’s impeachment. Only two or three pro-impeachment Republicans would remain in office if she loses her August 16 primary.
“Can I curse?” one voter asked when questioned by CNN on Monday about Cheney’s presence on the partisan Jan. 6 committee. “She’s done us dirty,” the voter explained. “Look at how she’s treated, Donald Trump. I’m a Trump supporter.”
The Wyoming GOP ejected its representative from the state in 2021 because of Cheney’s ties to the Democratic Party and her focus on Trump. Since then, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), former Congressman Barbara Cubin, and Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) have backed Harriet Hageman, Cheney’s opponent.
