  • Liz Cheney’s New Fundraiser Makes You Wonder if She Has Just Stopped Running and Is Only Raking in Cash

    I don’t think it is any great secret that Wyoming Republican Liz Cheney is in a lot of trouble. Much to her surprise, her ridiculous and vindictive vote to impeach President Trump for the January 6 “insurrection,” was met with anger and contempt by her home state voters and, surprisingly, by her home state GOP. I say surprisingly because usually, a state GOP is very hesitant in going after a member of Congress from their own party. In February, the Wyoming GOP formally censured her. In August, two county GOP organizations voted to withdraw their recognition of her as a...

    Former President Trump is criticizing former President George W. Bush for backing Rep. Liz Cheney's (R-Wyo.) effort to keep her seat in what will likely be a hotly contested GOP primary. In a statement released late Wednesday through his Save America PAC, Trump slammed Bush and his longtime political adviser Karl Rove for endorsing “warmongering and very low polling, Liz Cheney.” “Bush is the one who got us into the quicksand of the Middle East and, after spending trillions of dollars and killing nearly a million people, the Middle East was left in worse shape after 21 years than it...

    Former President Donald Trump attacked George W. Bush and his longtime consigliere Karl Rove Wednesday after it emerged the pair would headline a Texas fundraiser for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) next month. “RINO former President George ‘Dubya’ Bush and his flunky Karl Rove are endorsing warmongering and very low polling, Liz Cheney,” Trump’s emailed statement began. The 45th president reiterated earlier statements about the 43rd president being “the one who got us into the quicksand of the Middle East and, after spending trillions of dollars and killing nearly a million people, the Middle East was left in worse shape after...

    WASHINGTON—The race for Wyoming’s single U.S. House district has pitted two of the biggest names in Republican politics against one another: both of the party’s living former presidents. Former President George W. Bush’s first campaign event of the 2022 midterms will be a fundraiser to support Rep. Liz Cheney, the Wyoming Republican who is among former President Donald Trump’s top targets to unseat. The fundraiser will be held next month in Dallas, according to a copy of an invitation viewed by The Wall Street Journal. Ms. Cheney is a daughter of Mr. Bush’s vice president, Dick Cheney, and is one...
  • Third candidate quits after Trump endorsement in Cheney race

    A Wyoming state legislator is no longer among the Republicans challenging Liz Cheney in 2022. Republicans should unite to defeat Cheney, state Rep. Chuck Gray, of Casper, said in a statement suspending his campaign Tuesday. Former President Donald Trump last week endorsed Cheyenne lawyer Harriet Hageman in the Republican U.S. House primary. Cheney reacted to the endorsement by saying, “Bring it.” Gray was among more than half a dozen Republicans to challenge Cheney for her vote to impeach Trump for the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Gray is the third candidate, after Cheyenne attorney Darin Smith and Sheridan...
  • Pressure grows on anti-Cheney primary challengers to quit after Trump endorsement

    After former President Donald Trump endorsed Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman’s primary challenge against his top congressional Republican nemesis Rep. Liz Cheney, the rest of the candidates in the crowded primary field faced immediate pressure to end their campaigns and back his pick. But while two candidates have dropped out in light of the endorsement, at least four Cheney challengers say that they intend to stay in the race. The former president had long urged “JUST ONE CANDIDATE” to run against Cheney. The risk if candidates stay in the race is that the anti-Cheney field could split the vote , and...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) responded to former President Trump’s endorsement of her House challenger on Thursday, writing on Twitter “Bring it.” Trump on Thursday officially endorsed Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman as she wages a bid to unseat Cheney from her post in Congress. Trump, in his endorsement, called Cheney the Democrats’ “number one provider of sound bites.”

    Donald Trump is set to back Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman as she prepares a primary challenge against GOP Rep. Liz Cheney, according to three people with knowledge of his plans, marking the most important political endorsement yet in Trump’s post-presidency. snip In a final step before officially announcing her campaign later this week, Hageman resigned Tuesday as one of Wyoming’s members of the Republican National Committee. snip Aside from her Trump connection, Hageman’s campaign credentials include her status as a fourth-generation Wyomingite who grew up on a ranch, later becoming a conservative activist and top land-use attorney in a state...

    Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that former President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s “surrender agreement with the Taliban” led directly to the unfolding situation of the Taliban taking over Afghanistan as the U.S. military withdraws. Cheney said, “We know the Taliban has never renounced al Qaeda. This is one of the things that was such an indefensible step by the Trump administration. When President Trump and Secretary of State Pompeo designed to sign a surrender agreement with the Taliban.”

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), referred to by former President Donald Trump as the "most quoted Republican in the history of our country by Democrats," strongly denounced both the Biden and Trump administrations for their handling of Afghanistan during her Sunday appearance on ABC's "This Week." In an exchange with co-anchor Jonathan Karl, Cheney discussed how this "didn't happen in a vacuum," when it comes to the withdrawal from Afghanistan. Cheney's focus was on criticizing the Trump administration in particular. "Look, I think absolutely President Biden bears responsibility for making this decision. But there is no question that President Trump, his...

    Some local Republican Party officials in Wyoming have announced they will no longer recognize Liz Cheney as a party member because of her vote to impeach Donald Trump. “In the immortal words of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump …‘You’re Fired!’” read recent letters to Cheney from GOP officials in Park and Carbon counties. Wyoming has 23 mainly rural counties and the officials in Park and Carbon counties voted unanimously over the last week in favor of the latest form of censure against Cheney. In February, the state GOP voted overwhelmingly to censure Cheney...

    The far-right media has become very interested in Wyoming politics, but only because it smells blood. Liz Cheney’s blood, to be precise. But I’d caution anyone who thinks it’s time to write Cheney’s political obituary that there’s much yet to unfold before the state’s GOP voters go to the polls a year from now. Can a three-term Wyoming congresswoman who has taken a principled stand against a disgraced former president to uphold American democracy return to the U.S. House? I don’t see why not. Cheney has money and the support of her party’s traditional establishment. It’s not the scenario faux-news...

During an Aspen Institute panel discussion alongside former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Cheney said her father is displeased with the state of the Republican Party following former President Trump’s term in the White House.” More at Breitbart

    Came across this report from NewsmaxBasically he says while Cheney is widely despised back home in Wyoming and loses big head to head if all her challengers are on the ballot then she can survive by splitting the vote. This has got to be our worst nightmare?! I doubt all of her challengers will mount strong campaigns but no doubt she will help the weaker ones with some dirty tricks... Praying that Republicans in the state get behind just one of them - along with Trump - and force the others out. It's still very much early days....

    Former President Donald Trump's strategy to oust Representative Liz Cheney from office is to rally Republicans around one candidate. It's possible that person will be Darin Smith, a businessman from Cheyenne. After surveying 766 likely Republican primary voters, the Remington Research Group found Smith to be the current frontrunner in the congressional race. In a head-to-head matchup with Cheney, Smith garnered 70 percent support and Cheney had 20 percent.

    secretive political action committee with distant ties to former President Donald Trump appears to be supporting state Rep. Chuck Gray, R-Casper, in the race to defeat U.S. Congresswoman Liz Cheney in next year’s Republican primary. The organization, “Protect Wyoming Values PAC,” officially filed with the Federal Elections Commission earlier this month. It has since launched a Facebook and text message campaign that thus far has offered support only for Gray in his campaign against the third-term congresswoman. Seven candidates have announced their bids to challenge Cheney. “Wyoming has been the topic of discussion in national politics, but not for good...

Cheney trails Gray by 40 points in a head to head match up, according to the Mclaughlin & Associates poll. The poll also hands a 72 percent unfavorability rating to Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.

    If you’re going to sacrifice your career to serve on this panel, you might as well come to play. We cannot leave the violence of January 6th — and its causes — uninvestigated. The American people deserve the full and open testimony of every person with knowledge of the planning and preparation for January 6th. We must know what happened here at the Capitol. We must also know what happened every minute of that day in the White House — every phone call, every conversation, every meeting leading up to, during, and after the attack. Honorable men and women have...
