President Trump announced he will be meeting with Republicans who plan to challenge Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney in the state’s primary before deciding on an endorsement in the coming months.
Trump released a statement on Tuesday saying he will meet with multiple individuals in New Jersey this weekend in an effort to oust the “RINO” congresswoman.
“Some highly respected pollsters tell me she’s toast in Wyoming after siding with Crazy Nancy Pelosi and supporting the Democrat Impeachment Hoax,” Trump stated.
He continued by reiterating the importance of having just one candidate challenge her primary bid, which is currently crowded with at least six potential challengers.
Two of her Republican opponents include state lawmakers Anthony Bouchard and Chuck Gray, both of whom she has significantly outpaced in terms of fundraising.
Despite the discrepancy in funding, many expect Trump’s endorsement to alter the climate of the race given his astronomical support in Wyoming during the election.
Cheney has become well-known in recent months for her anti-Trump criticism and her vote to impeach him back in January following the Capitol riots.
She was ousted from her leadership role as the House Republican Conference chairwoman in May after her constant open criticism of Trump, her colleagues on Capitol Hill, and the alleged voter fraud surrounding the 2020 election.
Cheney’s Republican colleagues opted for her removal through a voice vote and have since replaced her with New York Representative Elise Stefanik, a supporter of Trump and advocate for widespread election integrity.
