Liz Cheney urges Trump to deliver it up after endorsing her important challenger
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) told Trump to bring it up after supporting her main Republican challenger.
Cheney responded to Trump’s approval of her opponent:
In a lengthy statement, Cheney said:
NEW: Liz Cheney on Trump supporting her main challenger. “It is tragic that some in this race … have sacrificed their duty to the people of Wyoming for fear and loyalty to a former president who … provoked an attack on the US Capitol.” Complete stmt 👇 https://t.co/JCYWpYwJ5L
Unlike the vast majority of Republican elected officials, Liz Cheney is not afraid of Trump. The former president has a lot to lose if he wades into a House area code in Wyoming.
If Cheney wins the primaries against Trump-backed opponent, it will destroy the myth that Trump is some kind of king and queen in the Republican Party who cannot be beaten.
So far, Trump has chatted a big game but hasn’t spent his super PAC on funding Republican candidates.
If Trump follows his usual pattern, he will give an endorsement, make a campaign appearance and that is all.
I wouldn’t bet Liz Cheney beat the Trump-backed main challenger.
