According to reports, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) will likely be stripped of her number-three leadership position in the Republican party as early as next week. She also faces an upcoming election battle for her Congressional seat, with “Trump’s political team vetting” a “growing list” of primary challengers for the 2022 elections.
“It’s all but certain that as early as next week House Republicans will strip Rep. Liz Cheney of her number-three GOP leadership position — but Cheney faces another major headache back home in Wyoming, as Republicans are plotting to oust her as the state’s lone representative in Congress when she’s up for re-election next year,” reported Fox News.
Fox also noted that Cheney, “the most high profile of the 10 House Republicans to vote in January to impeach then-President Trump,” might benefit from a crowded primary field which “likely divides the anti-Cheney and pro-Trump vote.” Trump himself warned against this scenario, saying “her only chance would be if vast numbers of people run against her which, hopefully, won’t happen.”
During the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in February 2021, Trump called for Cheney’s removal, saying “hopefully they’ll get rid of her with the next election.”
