Republicans in two Wyoming counties have to revoke recognition of embattled U.S. Rep Liz Cheney (R-WY) as a member of the Grand Old Party. Cheney’s approval ratings have consistently decreased as she repeats Biden regime talking points and attacks former President Donald Trump, who is still beloved by a large portion of the GOP base.
Wyoming’s Park County and Carbon County both unanimously voted for the measure, and subsequently send messages to Cheney informing her that she would no longer be recognized as a Republican.
“Park County set up the ball, Carbon County spiked it,” Carbon County Republican Party Joey Correnti, chairman told the Casper Star-Tribune. “And now other counties, I say by the end of the week you’ll have at least three or four other counties that are having meetings that will pass a similar resolution.”
“Representative Elizabeth Lynne Cheney, will officially no longer be personally recognized by the Carbon County Republican Party as a ‘REPUBLICAN’ Representative,”the Carbon County letter reads. Both the Park County letter and the Carbon County resolution conclude with with the line, “In the immortal words of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump …‘You’re Fired!’”
As National File reported in July, Cheney has smashed fundraising goals as opposition forces struggle to coalesce around a frontrunner to challenge her in the 2022 primary:
A report from Fox News on Tuesday found that the Cheney campaign boasts of having $2.85 million in the bank as of the end of June. The rep. who participated in a failed attempt to impeach former President Donald Trump netted $1.8 million in fundraising cash in the second quarter of 2021, beating the first quarter’s total of $1.5 million.
In total, the Cheney campaign has raised almost $3.5 million in 2021, beating out the field of primary challengers by a substantial margin. For example, Wyoming State Sen. Anthony Bouchard had self-reported a total of about $500,000 in fundraising cash.
Cheney, who maintains abysmal favorability ratings amongst Republican voters both in her home state and on the national scale, has nonetheless remained confident in her chances to secure re-election, even after being removed from her post as House Conference Chair. The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney’s overflowing fundraising coffers may provide a clue to the source of said confidence.
Despite the millions given to the Cheney campaign, Republican opposition to her continues to grow steadily, as evidenced by the park County and Carbon County resolutions this week.
