Cheney No Longer Recognized as Party Member by Wyoming GOP Leaders

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, who voted to impeach former President Trump six months ago,  is no longer recognized as the Republican Party’s member by GOP groups of two Wyoming counties- Park County Republicans and Carbon County Republicans- in the latest unanimously voted move against her, The Hill learns.

According to Park County Republicans’ chairman Martin Kimmet, the group informed Cheney they’re no longer recognizing her as the official Republican Congressional Representative in a letter, while Carbon County Republicans have adopted formal resolution denouncing Cheney.

Carbon GOP Chairman Joey Correnti is now expecting at least three or four other counties to follow their suit by the end of the week with Uinta, Big Horn, Laramie and Weston counties already asking for a copy of the resolution.

Cheney was already censured by the Wyoming state GOP in February and removed from her position as House Republican Conference Chair in May for her impeachment vote that has earned her several public rebukes from GOPs.

Though the resolutions have no legal effect on Cheney’s party affiliation, she’s already facing eight primary challengers for her seat ahead of the 2022 midterm elections with Trump promising to endorse a Cheney opponent of his choice.
