Skip to comments.Liz Cheney’s Consultants Are Given an Ultimatum: Drop Her, or Be Dropped

A prominent Washington lobbyist close to Kevin McCarthy, the House minority leader, is warning Republican political consultants that they must choose between working for Representative Liz Cheney or Mr. McCarthy, an ultimatum that marks the full rupture between the two House Republicans.
Jeff Miller, the lobbyist and a confidant of Mr. McCarthy’s dating to their youthful days in California politics, has conveyed this us-or-her message to Republican strategists in recent weeks, prompting one fund-raising firm to disassociate itself from Ms. Cheney, a Republican from Wyoming.
In response, The Morning Group, a fund-raising firm she hired to help prepare for a primary next year against a challenger endorsed by former President Donald J. Trump, informed her last month they could no longer work on her campaign, according to Republicans familiar with the matter.
Mr. Miller’s warnings illustrate the disintegration of the relationship between the two lawmakers, who began this year serving together in the House Republican leadership. They also underline Mr. McCarthy’s willingness to wield his leadership position to undercut Ms. Cheney’s re-election and head off an impediment to his claiming the speakership, should Republicans win a House majority next year. Were Ms. Cheney to return to Congress, she would loom as a potential instigator of any effort to block Mr. McCarthy from leading their party in the House.

Yeah, she’s off the wall, and her political future will not end well. Any consultant that wants to work in DC in the future should hear the alarms going off.
Time to bid adieu.
From a helicopter?
Cheney’s vision is so yesteryear. Trump showed Republicans how to fight radical Dems and win. He demonstrated how to release capitalism and achieve world economic dominance and to use that dominance to influence behaviors of competing countries around the world without resorting to military threats. Cheney is opposite.
Cheney and McCarthy are both RINO weasels and should both leave.
She is a supreme c u next tuesday. And a deepstate rino being a cheney. Just as bad as Romney and McCain.

Wonder how much money The Turtle has donated to Liz’s campaign? I’m sure he’s thought about it.
Wow a strategic operation from a dumb republican (mcarthy). Wonders never cease.
Must not be wearing too thin as Weak McCarthy has done NOTHING to
She has been shooting off her foolish mouth like a complete idiot. Or Commie propagandist. Or both.
The sooner she is removed from the R party the better.
All her efforts are against the party and its messaging. Continually doubling down on stupid. As a consulting hired by both, you would have to craft a strategy to win on policy and elections, and THEN craft another strategy to sabotage it for her. Madness.
Not possible. A helicopter can't rise with her in it.
That said, why is the United States Grand Prix the "aramco" United States Grand Prix?
I can think of a few dozen US alternatives. Just sayin'.
Throw the old dingbat overboard already 🤪
Wrong thread but I noticed that too and would have ditched the ad from my headline if I had posted.
Guess Liz will just have to rely on her true friends for help on her reelection bid..... “the Democrap party & the liberal media”.
