“We don’t agree on every policy, but I am absolutely certain that Abigail is dedicated to serving this country and her constituents and defending our Constitution,” Cheney said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.

Cheney’s work will end after this term, so far leaving a legacy of turning against her own party and the people of her own state.
The odd turn of events is one of many twists in this year’s midterms, including former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard endorsing several Republicans.
