Is Liz Cheney really considering a run for the White House?
According to a Fox News report, former Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney (R) said on Thursday that she has not ruled out a White House bid in 2024.
Cheney made the comments while speaking at the 2023 Mackinac Policy Conference in Detroit; she was asked if she’d consider a third-party run at the Oval.
“Look, I think that we have to have good people, and I don’t know yet what that is going to look like,” Cheney replied.
“But, I’m not going to rule it out,” she added.
From Fox News:
Cheney said last year that she would not be a Republican on the ballot if she ran for the White House in the future.
Earlier in the conversation, Cheney had said she was not supporting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. DeSantis officially announced his candidacy late last month during a Twitter event with billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
She stressed that the tectonic plates of U.S. politics are shifting and that Americans need people who are serious and sane in office.
She encouraged people to take up the mantle, highlighting the need to unseat and block election deniers up and down the ballot.
Despite getting walloped in her House re-election bid last year, Cheney says she has no regrets —except for supporting former President Donald Trump; she ultimately took a seat on the J6 committee, drawing the ire of the former President.
“I am really focused on making sure that Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office again,” she said to applause. “And, I’m going to continue to make sure to do everything I can both to ensure that, also to make sure that other election deniers are not elected. And, I think that is just so hugely important. You know, when we put people in positions of authority who deny the sanctity of our elections, we really do put the Republic at risk.”
