Liz Cheney Plans Revenge In Midterms, Dares Trump To Primary Her: ‘Bring It On’
Republican Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) was removed from GOP leadership today in a quick vote. Trump and his political team have painted a big red bullseye on her back and will mount at least one primary challenge to her while discouraging others from crowding the field.
Looking at that bleak future Cheney is making a surprise move – vowing revenge she plans to battle for the soul of the GOP with Trump. According to multiple reports, she wants to move the GOP away from Trump and will try to “mold a future Republican Party that looks more like a Cheney party and less like a Trump party. As to what Trump has in store for her in the primary, a defiant Cheney said some words she may soon regret: “bring it on.”
“I intend to be the leader — one of the leaders — in a fight to help to restore our party, in a fight to bring our party back to substance and principle, and in a fight to make clear that we won’t participate in the really dangerous effort that’s underway,” she said.
She conceded her feud with former President Donald Trump is “a battle for the soul of the Republican Party,” before challenging Trump by saying:
“This is the opening salvo in that battle, and it’s a battle we have to win because it’s not just about the Republican Party. It’s about the country.”
“We must be true to our principles and to the Constitution,” Cheney told Republicans before the closed-door vote according to NBC.
“We cannot let the former president drag us backward and make us complicit in his efforts to unravel our democracy. Down that path lies our destruction and potentially the destruction of our country.”
As to Trump’s potential run in 2024, she said, “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.”
Trump issued a statement:
“Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being. I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country.
“She is a talking point for Democrats, whether that means the Border, the gas lines, inflation, or destroying our economy.
Cheney’s recent poll numbers show her in trouble for the next election. The Club for Growth PAC shows the congresswoman with a negative net image. Cheney’s unfavorable rating stands at 65 percent with a net image of -36 percent, according to the last poll.
In addition, 52 percent said they would rather vote for her opponent regardless of who runs against her. For comparison, the same poll found Trump’s favorability numbers to be an overwhelming 60 percent net positive.
On Tuesday night, on the eve of being ousted from leadership, Cheney hijacked time on the House floor to air her grievances on the record with former President Donald Trump and the Republican Party. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), who was in charge of distributing time to House members for a debate on cancel culture, yielded to Cheney.
This enabled Cheney to speak on the record about her disagreement with the party before being relieved of her position.
