HEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney was increasingly open on Wednesday about considering a 2024 presidential campaign after soundly losing a Republican primary to a challenger backed by former President Donald Trump.
Speaking to NBC in the wake of her loss, the third-term congresswoman called Trump “a very grave threat and risk to our republic,” and said defeating him will require “a broad and united front of Republicans, Democrats and independents — and that’s what I intend to be part of.”
She declined to say if she would run for president but conceded it’s “something that I’m thinking about.”
The primary results — and the more than 35-point margin of her defeat — were a powerful reminder of the GOP’s rapid shift to the right. A party once dominated by national security-oriented, business-friendly conservatives like her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, now belongs to Trump, animated by his populist appeal and, above all, his denial of defeat in the 2020 election.

Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?
To the junk heap of political has been’s!
Delusions of grandeur. Next thing, Liz Cheney is going to be telling people that she’s Napoleon.
Just how dumb can Liz be???? Damn you loose in a complete landslide in a pissant state and now you think you can be president of the USA.....Holly Molly
Why doesn’t she ponder being the Cleveland Brown’s quarterback for the first part of the season?
How about a 2022 bid of “getting a job like everyone else”? These generational political families disgust me. They think they are royalty.
Daddy wanted a son and got a loser instead!
She needs to run for an office in her hometown - one of the Washington DC bedroom communities.
She might win; although there is no shortage of self-important candidates in those latitudes looking to get in on the gravy train.
got her ass kicked by 37 points and she wants to run for president? The arrogance and stupidity in this woman is one bottomless well..
It doesn’t look good for someone who got creamed in the own state to win the presidency.
This is not a move to the right.
Drain the Swamp is not a right wing thing. It should be both right and left wing. All the parasites in Washington raising money from both sides should be eliminated.
Trump should therefore be getting Democrat votes.
The first step in the process is to understand there are no exceptions. NO EXCEPTIONS. Anyone in politics over 10 years is part of the swamp. Erase them.
Stuck on stupid.
Right, nobody wants you in congress anymore but you think they’ll want you in the WH?
This broad’s ready for a padded room.
I just lost my primary by 40 points! Maybe I should run for president instead.
Post of the day!
Liz couldn't get elected dog catcher in Wyoming. Sooner or later her Presidential aspirations will also collide with reality.
Quite a juggernaut - losing a House primary as an incumbent by nearly 40 points is certainly a spring board to the highest office in the land.
I know how she feels.
When I didn’t pass the test to get into the Air Force as a Pilot, I applied for a job as an Astronaut.
