The Wyoming Republican Party seems to have finally had enough of faux Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, deciding in a recent vote that they would no longer recognize her role in the party.
“The 31-29 vote Saturday in Buffalo, Wyoming, by the state party central committee followed votes by local GOP officials in about one-third of Wyoming’s 23 counties to no longer recognize Cheney as a Republican,” The Associated Press reported.
“In February, the Wyoming GOP central committee voted overwhelmingly to censure Cheney, Wyoming’s lone U.S. representative, for voting to impeach Trump.”
The resolution passed over the weekend stated:
Previously mentioned in the resolution of censure, Representative Liz Cheney ‘cast her vote in favor of impeachment without any quantifiable evidence of High Crimes or Misdemeanors. As to date, no quantifiable and or undisputed evidence has been offered Representative Liz Cheney to defend her questionable decision.
“It’s laughable to suggest Liz is anything but a committed conservative Republican,” Jeremy Adler, a Cheney spokesman, said in a statement.
“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.”
Cheney has taken heat from many of her Republican colleagues in Congress over the last several months, and rightfully so.
The so-called Republican Rep. has an anti-Trump obsession and puts that above everything else.
Support for removing Cheney from her position as No. 3 in the House Republican leadership earlier this year was so overwhelming that there was no vote recorded as a simple voice vote was suffice.
“Former democratic Rep Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ) tells me the vote of no confidence was a LOUD voice vote which Cheney failed,” Newsy reporter Nathaniel Reed wrote on Twitter. “Says no one spoke up to defend her, [Rep. Adam] Kinzinger (R-IL) included.”
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz mocked Cheney last week, responding to a CNN panel which questioned whether or not there was a lane for Cheney to run for president in the 2024 election.
Cruz said, “Yes. It’s called the Democratic primary.”
After Cheney was ousted from here leadership role back in May, Fox News host Bret Baier had the opportunity to confront Cheney about her obsessive hatred of President Trump.
“So, if you look at the numbers in Wyoming, 70% of Wyoming voted for President Trump, actually more people voted for President Trump than voted for you, a higher percentage voted for President Trump,” Baier said. “Now you’re saying you’re dedicating your life to opposing him. So why — we’ll put up those numbers — why should Wyoming voters, say, re-elect you when you’re spending so much energy opposing him? So little opposing Biden?”
“Well, you’re wrong,” Cheney claimed.
“No, no,” Baier responded. “I mean these are the numbers.”
“No, I’m not disputing the numbers, but I’m disputing your characterization of what I’m doing,” Cheney responded.
“I think it’s really important for us to be as strong as possible in defeating the Biden policies. We cannot do that if we enable a lie. We cannot do that if we fail to learn the lessons from the 2020 election. And the people of Wyoming believe deeply in the Constitution, the people of Wyoming know that we must use the Constitution as our shield, that we must defend the Constitution.”

“And so when you look at the challenge that the former president is presenting right now, still today, claiming that the election was stolen, claiming that our electoral process does not accurately reflect the will of the people, no remorse or regret for January 6, continuing to use the language that we know inspired violence in the past—”
