The Wyoming Republican Party voted to no longer recognize anti-Trump Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as a member of the GOP.
The state party central committee voted 31-29 Saturday in its second rebuke of Cheney after her vote to impeach former President Trump when they censured her, the Associated Press reports.
Now the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney faces at least four GOP primary opponents in 2022. Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman is endorsed by Trump.
“Liz Cheney stopped recognizing what Wyomingites care about a long time ago. When she launched her war against President Trump, she completely broke with where we are as a state,” Hageman told the Casper Star-Tribune.
But Cheney, a growing star among Never Trumpers and Democrats, seems unphased.
“It’s laughable to suggest Liz is anything but a committed conservative Republican. She is bound by her oath to the Constitution. Sadly, a portion of the Wyoming GOP leadership has abandoned that fundamental principle, and instead allowed themselves to be held hostage to the lies of a dangerous and irrational man,” Jeremy Adler, a Cheney spokesman, said in a statement Monday.
Cheney’s colleague, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tweeted: “What job will Liz Cheney be getting in the Biden Administration to continue avoiding Wyoming Republicans?”
