Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney is still considering launching a 2024 presidential campaign. Rep. Cheney told reporters she hasn’t ruled out the idea of running for president despite her popularity amongst the party slipping after voting to impeach former president Trump.
According to The New York Post:
“I’m not ruling anything in or out — I’ve been here a long time,” she told The Post when asked if she would ever consider running in the future.
“I think we have a huge number of interesting candidates, but I think that we’re going to be in a good position to be able to take the White House. I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view that’s disqualifying,” she said.
“I think that adherence to the Constitution, adherence to your oath has got to be at the top of the list. So, I think, you know that certainly will be a factor that I’m looking at and I think a number of voters will be looking at as they decide about ’24.”
Cheney, the No. 3 Republican in the House and daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has been a vocal critic of former President Trump, often rebuking his style and splitting with him on a number of issues including foreign policy during his time in office.
Recently, Cheney was asked if Trump was the party’s nominee in 2024 if she would support hurt, her answer was short. See what she said HERE.
Trump has vowed to support Republican primary challengers against those that voted to impeach him following the January 6th Capitol riot. Trump has also refrained from confirming if he plans to run for president once again in 2024 but so far polls show a majority of Americans would ultimately support Trump’s campaign. If Trump does not decide to run polls show Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as the odds-on favorite to win the Republican Party’s nomination.
