Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney will not remain a Republican if former President Donald Trump becomes the Republican Party’s nominee for president in 2024, she said at the Texas Tribune festival. 

Cheney vowed to do everything she could to make sure Donald Trump is not the nominee, otherwise, she’ll leave the party.

She also said she’ll help Democrats’ campaign to ensure that no Republican candidates who promote election lies get elected. One such candidate is running the Arizona gubernatorial race.

Cheney said she’ll even campaign for Democrats, if necessary, in her efforts to ensure that GOP nominee – the former television journalist Kari Lake who has become a leading voice behind Trump’s lies about election fraud- does not get elected.

GOP Rep., however, claimed she doesn’t want Democrats to keep control of the House of Representatives after the midterms, citing the Biden administration’s bad policies, stressing the importance of voters recognizing and understanding what the GOP Conference in the House of Representatives today consists of.

Trump-backed attorney Harriet Hageman’s primary triumph last month against Cheney was a significant marker in the broader fight over the Republican Party’s direction.

House GOP leadership booted Cheney – once considered an up-and-comer – last year over her unyielding opposition to Trump. She also helped lead the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol which resulted in her trailing in poling back home this year.

Yet, Cheney still dodges questions about her future political moves regarding her possible running for President in 2024 though her advisors previously noted she’ll postpone her decision until next year when she’ll no longer be in Congress or serving as vice chair of the Jan 6 committee.
