Rep. Liz Cheney announces reelection campaign amidst fierce opposition

The Washington Examiner reported this week that Wyoming’s anti-Trump Rep. Liz Cheney is running for a fourth term in Congress.

Cheney to supporters: “I won’t surrender to pressure or intimidation.”

“We have accomplished so much together over the last five years. We have much left to do,” Cheney declared in a video put out on Thursday.

“As we work together to fight for Wyoming and the issues that matter to us, there are some things you can count on,” she continued.

“When I know something is wrong, I will say so,” the congresswoman insisted. “I won’t waver or back down. I won’t surrender to pressure or intimidation.”

“And I know that some things aren’t for sale. That’s the code of the West. I’m asking you for your vote because this is a fight we must win,” she concluded.

In addition to putting out the video, Cheney also released a tweet in which she claimed that her “brand is the U.S. Constitution.”

However, Cheney’s reelection effort faces serious hurdles in the form of a Trump-endorsed primary challenger along with opposition from her party’s leadership.

Trump to hold a rally in support of primary challenger

Fox News reported earlier this month that Republican candidate Harriet Hageman raised $1.3 million between January and March of this year.

Former President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a rally in Casper, Wyoming on Saturday in support of Hageman’s candidacy.

Cheney became a controversial figure due to her outspoken criticism of the former president and was one of only 10 GOP members to vote in favor of impeaching him following the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

What’s more, Cheney raised eyebrows two weeks ago when she tweeted, “The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism. History has taught us that what begins with words ends in far worse.”
