Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) vowed to campaign for Democrats in the midterms and will even leave the GOP if former President Trump wins the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.
She told the Texas Tribune Festival over the weekend “I’m going to make sure Donald Trump, and I’m going to do everything I can to make sure he is not the nominee. And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.”
When asked if she would campaign for Democrats, Cheney said, “Yes.”

This statement by Cheney comes just weeks after she lost her bid for re-election, and was censured by the Wyoming GOP and the RNC, for her participation in the House Democrats’ Jan. 6 committee.
Cheney continued telling the crowd that she would campaign against the Arizona Republican Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, because of her concerns about election integrity.
“I’m going to do everything I can do to make sure Kari Lake is not elected,” Cheney stated.
Rep. Thomas Massie tweeted, “In 2020, when Liz Cheney was the GOP House conference chair, she backed my primary opponent. I won that race 81% to 19%.”
