Liz Cheney Says She Likes Working With Democrats, Blasts DeSantis As Primary Looms

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) sat down for an interview on Sunday with the New York Times where she stated she likes working with Democrats more than Republicans and repeatedly blasted the GOP’s rising stars, including Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.).

“[The Republican Party] is continuing to drive itself in a ditch and I think it’s going to take several cycles if it can be healed,” Cheney said during the interview, adding she will not switch parties — but claiming the GOP is “very sick.

“I think that Ron DeSantis has lined himself up almost entirely with Donald Trump, and I think that’s very dangerous,” Cheney said of the Florida governor who’s seen as a potential candidate for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

The Wyoming Congresswoman continued by stating her red line for supporting a GOP candidate in the 2024 election would be their refusal to state that Trump lost in 2020.

The daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney then outlined how she’d much rather work with Democrats than with her counterparts in the Republican delegation.

“I would much rather serve with Mikie Sherrill and Chrissy Houlahan and Elissa Slotkin than Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert, even though on substance certainly I have big disagreements with the Democratic women I just mentioned,” she proclaimed. “But they love this country, they do their homework and they are people that are trying to do the right thing for the country.”

“What the country needs are serious people who are willing to engage in debates about policy,” Cheney added.


The once third highest ranking member of the GOP within the House of Representatives sees herself as one of those “serious people,” however, Republican voters in Wyoming don’t see it the same way. 

Recent polling from the Casper-Star Tribune reveals Cheney’s primary opponent, Harriet Hageman, has a 22-point lead over the incumbent in the primary election on August 16.

“The big story is Liz Cheney is going to get beat. That’s a foregone conclusion,” said Brad Coker, who conducted the poll.

Wyoming Republicans feel like Cheney is focused too much on the January 6th Committee and has betrayed the former president with Julie Hitt, a Casper resident stating, “Her voting record is not bad. But so much of her focus is on Jan 6.” Hitt’s husband added, “She’s so in bed with the Democrats, with Pelosi, and with all them people.”

Cheney will certainly lose her reelection bid next week, but there are signs that she has further aspirations to continue to usurp the “America First” movement: “Ms. Cheney had spent roughly half her war chest as of the start of July, spurring speculation that she was saving money for future efforts against Mr. Trump,” The New York Times wrote.

Cheney, whose father held considerable sway over the GOP throughout the 2000s, may still think that the Republican Party can go back to Bush-era politics, but that time has passed, however, and voters are unwilling to tolerate a Republican who attacks the party’s rising stars and is unwilling to represent their interests while in power.

It’s now up to voters to exercise their rights, let their voices her heard and send a clear message to the politicians in Washington this November, that their priorities couldn’t be more mixed up.
