Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney has officially filed to run for re-election despite heavy criticism from fellow Republicans.
Cheney, who voted to impeach former President Trump and now serves on the House Jan. 6th panel, has earned the title of “RINO” meaning a “Republican in name only” from her peers. Now the former House GOP Conference chair has officially entered a crowded primary arena where the former President has pledged to help challengers seeking to oust her from Congress.
The Daily Wire reports:
“In Wyoming, we know what it means to ride for the brand. We live in the greatest nation God has ever created, and our brand is the U.S. Constitution,” she tweeted. “I’m running for re-election and asking for your vote because this is a fight we must win.”
Her announcement comes only two days before Trump will rally in support of Cheney challenger Harriet Hageman, according to the Caster Star-Tribune.
“This Save America rally is a continuation of President Trump’s unprecedented effort to advance the MAGA agenda by energizing voters and highlighting America First candidates and cause,” a press release about the event says.
On Thursday, Hageman officially filed to run for Congress. In an earlier campaign video, Hageman hit Cheney over her disloyalty.
“Liz Cheney doesn’t know what riding for the brand means,” the narrator in the ad says. “We sent her to D.C. to be loyal to the outfit that hired her. Be loyal to Wyoming, and our values. Instead of fighting for us, she’s fighting against President Trump. She betrayed us, she betrayed our values, she betrayed the brand.”
It’s no secret Rep. Cheney has an uphill road ahead to keep her seat in Congress. Will she manage to overcome the Trump machine barrelling toward her?
