During an interview with The New York Times Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WI) took a shot at popular GOP Governor Ron DeSantis and said she prefers working with Democrats over Republicans.
“I think that Ron DeSantis has lined himself up almost entirely with Donald Trump, and I think that’s very dangerous,” Cheney said.
Cheney also says expressed her preference for crossing the aisle instead of working within her own party.
“I would much rather serve with Mikie Sherrill and Chrissy Houlahan and Elissa Slotkin than Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert, even though on substance certainly I have big disagreements with the Democratic women I just mentioned,” Cheney said. “But they love this country, they do their homework and they are people that are trying to do the right thing for the country.”

The report noted that Cheney’s chances of holding onto her seat in the upcoming primary election next week are slim at best as polls show Cheney losing to primary challenger Harriet Hageman by more than 20 points.
Cheney recently told CNN that she does not expect to lose in her primary race but that losing may end up being the price that she pays for standing up to Trump.
“If the cost of standing up for the Constitution is losing the House seat, then that’s a price I’m willing to pay,” Cheney said.
