Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) made her first endorsement for a Democrat Thursday, The Hill reports.
After losing her re-election bid in the GOP primary, the anti-Trump congresswoman announced she is supporting Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) for re-election.
“I’m proud to endorse Elissa Slotkin,” Cheney said in a statement. “Serving together on the Armed Services Committee, I have come to know Elissa as a good and honorable public servant who works hard for the people she represents, wants what’s best for the country, and is in this for the right reasons.”
The Jan. 6 House select committee vice chair will appear with the Michigan Democrat at a Nov. 1 event titled an “Evening for Patriotism and Bipartisanship.”
Slotkin is running against Republican state Sen. Thomas Barrett, whom Cheney has labeled an “election denier,” according to the outlet.
“I’m grateful for her support in this race and I’m proud of the work we’ve done together to strengthen our national security and America’s role in the world,” Slotkin said in a statement. “We all know that our country is going through a difficult moment right now. But throughout our history, two things have helped us weather times like these: engaged citizens and principled leaders, from both sides of the aisle.”
Cheney has said she will make it her life mission to make sure former President Trump never makes it back to the Oval Office.
