Liz Cheney is staking her entire political career on the war she’s waging against former President Donald Trump and his team.
But Cheney’s problems with the new GOP go far beyond Trump.
And now the RINO Representative is biting off more than she can chew by going after perhaps the next most popular figure in the Republican Party.
Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming has made it her mission to end former President Donald Trump’s political career.
She voted once to impeach Trump and is the co-chair of Nancy Pelosi’s kangaroo court January 6th Select Committee witch hunt.
In fact, Cheney has been so deadest on fighting against the titular head of the Republican party, it is likely going to end her time in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The incumbent Cheney is a huge underdog in her bid for re-election, trailing Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman in the GOP primary for the seat by 32-points in the most recent polling of the race.
Cheney has gone as far as openly courting Wyoming Democrats to save her – sending them instructions on how they can switch parties for vote for her in the Republican primary.
However, given the voter registration advantage for the GOP in the Cowboy State, it is unlikely Cheney’s donkey strategy or her massive campaign warchest will gain her another term in the People’s Chamber.
The primary is this coming Tuesday, August 16th, and the winner will be heading to the Capitol Hill in 2023 barring an act of God.
But Cheney’s eyes may be set on something bigger than two more years as a Congresswoman.
Many political pundits are speculating she is positioning herself to make a run at the White House in 2024 – either in the GOP primary, or as a third party candidate.
And Cheney is already setting her aim at another potential 2024 rival.
While speaking with her favorite paper, the New York Times, Cheney was asked if she could support Florida Governor Ron DeSantis should he run for the Oval Office.
“I think that Ron DeSantis has lined himself up almost entirely with Donald Trump,” Cheney said. “And I think that’s very dangerous.”
Cheney may want to think twice before adding DeSantis to an enemy list that already includes the 45th President of the United States.
Many foes have regretted tangling with America’s Governor, including Jen Psaki, Gavin Newsom, the Disney Corporation and most recently, Florida State Attorney Andrew Warren – who DeSantis just suspended for vowing not to obey Sunshine State laws regarding abortion and transitioning minors.
In her interview, Cheney didn’t stop with Trump and DeSantis, she has a major problem with the majority of the GOP.
She said she could not support any Republican candidate who believes President Joe Biden won clean and decisively in 2020.
As Poynter points out, polling indicated anywhere between 60% and 75% of Republicans believe Biden was not legitimately elected in the last Presidential cycle.
