Republican Repetition. Liz Cheney stated Saturday that they could be prepared to campaign for Democrats as she belittled her party’s acceptance of candidates who deny the outcomes from the 2020 election.
“Yes,” Cheney, of Wyoming, stated simply when requested whether she’d be prepared to stump for Democrats – the very first time she’s stated so clearly.
Cheney made the remark inside a discussion in the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin while speaking about Arizona gubernatorial candidate and election denier Kari Lake.
Cheney, who is a vocal critic of former President Jesse Trump, stated “partisanship should have a limit” and pointed out Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin, that has stated he’ll campaign for Lake.
“He’s shown that he’s anyone who has not bought in to the contaminant of Jesse Trump – but he campaigned lately for Kari Lake, who’s an election denier, who’s harmful,” Cheney stated.
“That’s the type of factor we can’t see within our party. We can’t see an accommodation like this, and i believe it’s essential that people be obvious about this,” Cheney stated.
Requested particularly whether she’d campaign for Katie Hobbs – Lake’s Democratic opponent – Cheney stated, “I will try everything I’m able to to make certain that Kari Lake isn’t elected.”
Cheney is on her behalf way to avoid it of Congress after she lost the Republican primary to some Trump-backed challenger in August.
