Cheney Pledges To Help Democrats Defeat GOP Candidates

In an announcement that should surprise exactly no one, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) vowed to support opponents of “election deniers.” As she said, she will aid Democrats if that’s what it takes to block those who question results from gaining or holding office.

Does this mean she will go to Georgia and campaign for GOP incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp? His opponent, leftist Democratic darling Stacey Abrams, had never conceded her 2018 defeat to the governor.

One Republican Cheney listed as unworthy of her valued support is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. The governor, along with Trump, is considered a front-runner for the GOP nomination in 2024. For Cheney, this is not a good thing.

Saying she believes he is “campaigning for election deniers,” the soon-to-be former representative all but said DeSantis does not support the U.S. Constitution.

Cheney has become a media darling since her resounding defeat, and the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney is even flirting with her own run at the White House. With or without that ambition, she vowed to spend the next two years blocking Trump from getting back in the Oval Office.

Cheney declared she will be “very focused” on doing whatever is possible to deny election deniers from winning in November. This, of course, is the same Liz Cheney who was just thumped by 37 points by Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman.

Much as Wyoming voters decided about her, Cheney announced that Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) are unfit for office. She stopped short of naming names in the House but did acknowledge that she will oppose some of her party colleagues there as well.

Is this who candidates are lining up to get an endorsement from? Or perhaps determine how to lose an election by a whopping 37 points?

For the record, what is it about Democrats and election losers? This is the party that builds alters to the defeated such as Abrams and Beto O’Rourke, and now they have suddenly found a Republican to fall behind.

While virtually no one expects blind loyalty to party leadership, be they ex-presidents or otherwise, Cheney is taking the concept of contrarianism to an extreme. Does she expect to assemble a loyal following when her own is so flimsy?
