Wyoming Republican Liz Cheney – perhaps Former President Donald Trump’s greatest critic from the Right – has revealed she is not ruling out a presidential run for 2024.
“I’ve been here for a long time — I’m not ruling anything out,” Cheney said in an interview.
“I think we’re going to be in a good position to take the White House. We have a good number of interesting candidates,” she continued. “However, I do think some GOP candidates, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge with Trump not to certify the election results, in my view, is disqualifying.”
“To qualify as a candidate I think adherence to your oath and observation of the Constitution should be of utmost importance. So, I think, a number of voters will be looking at that when they’re thinking of ’24,” she added.
Cheney has been incessantly urging the Republican Party to move away from Donald Trump’s America First agenda since she voted for his second impeachment in February. She went so far as to reveal Trump would not receive her vote, even if it meant a Republican not winning the White House in 2024. Cheney has repeatedly blamed the Former President for the events at the Capitol on Jan 6.
“I’ve been clear about my views about what happened on January 6th, about my views of the president’s culpability. I obviously voted to impeach him. I think that it was the gravest violation of an oath of office by any president in American history,”
Meanwhile, Trump has vowed to endorse Cheney’s Republican challenger.
Thus far, Wyoming State Sen. Anthony Bouchard and State Rep. Chuck Gray are both running against Cheney.
