Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney just got more bad news from the state’s Republican Party. A few local Republican Party officials in Wyoming just announced that they will no longer recognize Liz Cheney as a party member saying she was ‘fired.’
“In the immortal words of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, ‘You’re Fired!’” letters sent to Cheney from GOP officials in Park and Carbon counties said.
“Liz will continue to fight for all the people of Wyoming,” Cheney spokesman Jeremy Adler said. “She knows that she and all elected officials are bound by their duty under the U.S. Constitution, not by blind loyalty to one man.”
Cheney is fighting for her life in a tough GOP primary. Right now the field is crowded and that is her best chance.
If candidates split the vote some polls show her sneaking by with a small win. If the field is cleared and Cheney goes head to head polls show her getting crushed.
In February, the state GOP voted overwhelmingly to censure Cheney for her vote to impeach Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot.
In May, Republicans in Washington, D.C., voted to remove Cheney from her No. 3 House GOP leadership position after she maintained criticism of Trump for the riot and for his baseless assertions that voter fraud deprived him of re-election.
The Wyoming votes are largely symbolic. The Republican Party can withdraw or withhold support from GOP officeholders and candidates in a variety of ways but can’t oust anybody from the party.
Wyoming has 23 mainly rural counties and the officials in Park and Carbon counties voted unanimously over the last week in favor of the latest form of censure against Cheney.
