Liz Cheney Still Considering Run For White House This Year

Former Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney is still not ruling out tossing her tattered hat into the presidential ring for this year’s race. The anti-Trump extremist still claims membership in the Republican Party but said under no circumstances will she support the former president.

Despite being far along in the process, Cheney spoke of her possible entry Sunday to Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

She said she had not issued an endorsement and “certainly would never support Donald Trump. And we know what Donald Trump will do, because he’s telling us every day.”


What she and her small band of RINO Republicans do not understand is that is exactly his appeal to true conservatives.

Tapper then asked the former congresswoman if she is still considering an Oval Office run or if she had ruled it out. Cheney replied, “I haven’t made any decisions about it yet. I’m going to do whatever is necessary to defeat Donald Trump.”

The CNN host questioned Cheney on her backing for a particular candidate. Again, she could not escape her singular focus on the 45th president when she responded, “the most important thing is to defeat Donald Trump, and I will do whatever, whatever it takes to do that.”

She did finally confess that it is not “a hard call at all” to state she supports former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley among the two remaining Republicans in the primaries.


That’s an endorsement that Trump should use every day leading up to the South Carolina primary and beyond. 

Cheney, who joined left-wing House Democrats in their persecution of Trump over the Jan. 6 protest, has inexplicably been considering a White House run since last year. She told USA Today in December that she was mulling a third-party candidacy.

She was merely useful for the Democrats, and Republicans revealed their scorn for her when she came up for reelection in Wyoming. So, a third party is the only path she would have available.

Cheney touted a “coalition” approach to her possible candidacy. “I think the situation that we’re in is so grave, and the politics of the moment require independents and Republicans and Democrats coming together in a way that can help form a new coalition.” 

She told the Washington Post that she would never before have considered a third-party run.

Now, however, “democracy is at risk at home, obviously, as a result of Donald Trump’s continued grip on the Republican Party.”
