Rep. Liz Cheney Expelled From Wyoming Gop

This is the second formal rebuke of Rep. Liz Cheney by the Wyoming Republican Party. Earlier in May, Liz Cheney had been ousted similarly, being removed from the GOP conference chair and her status as the No. 3 in the House being taken from her. February had already seen her getting censured from the Wyoming Party. 

All the criticism from her Wyoming counterparts began after Liz Cheney’s blatant disapproval of the Jan. 6th riots and former President Trump’s role in the happenings.

Within hours she had called out Trump for inciting Republican supporters to attack Capitol Hill. She was among the 10 Republicans who decided to vote in favor of Trump’s impeachment. Also, Rep. Liz Cheney is the vice-chair of the House committee which was formed to look into the events that occurred on Jan. 6th.

The Resolution

The Wyoming GOP voted in a resolution to no longer recognize her as a Wyoming Republican member, this Saturday, passing it with a 31-29 vote ratio. This move is, however, merely symbolic and does not take away any of Cheney’s powers.

In response to the resolution, Liz Cheney’s spokesperson Jeremy Adler said, “It’s laughable to suggest Liz is anything but a committed conservative Republican.” He added, “She is bound by her oath to the Constitution.

Sadly, a portion of the Wyoming GOP leadership has abandoned that fundamental principle, and instead allowed themselves to be held hostage to the lies of a dangerous and irrational man.”

Liz Cheney’s Position

Rep. Liz Cheney has been observing politics since her childhood as she traversed through the Wyoming State with her father.

As a 12-year-old girl, she witnessed her father campaign and finally win the only seat in the House from the state of Wyoming. Her father Richard Cheney served as the former vice-president of the United States, later in his career.

Years later, in 2016, she was able to continue the Cheney heritage. Winning the Republican seat from Wyoming was a remarkable achievement for her, but she didn’t stop there. Five years down the line, she has continued to represent the people of Wyoming.

What significantly impacted her career is the stance she has stood for since the Jan. 6th attack on Capitol Hill.

Wyoming had voted vehemently for Trump in the 2020 elections, getting a 70% vote for the former Republican president. As staunch supporters of the GOP and also of Trump, the people of Wyoming are generally not considering the viewpoint of Liz Cheney.

ABC News reported that Wyoming voters are not happy with Cheney’s recent decisions. An example being quoted is that of Dennis Laughlin, a Harley-Davidson dealership owner in Green River, Wyoming, who said Cheney is falling in popularity following the impeachment vote.

“I think voting your conscience is noble. But not necessarily the best move that you can make for your political career,” Laughlin said. “The vast majority of people in the state of Wyoming are not happy with her decision.”

However, Liz Cheney is confident that her supporters will find her as a firm believer in the Constitution of the United States and a true patriot.

She hopes that explaining things to her voters will change their minds. It is important to note that Liz Cheney had gathered a majority vote of 68.6% in the 2020 General Elections and an even greater majority of 73.5% in the Republican Primary.

She had said emphatically on the evening of the oust in May, “I will not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law, and joins the former president’s crusade to undermine our democracy.”

Just last week in New Hampshire, she stated clearly, “Political leaders who sit silently in the face of these false and dangerous claims are aiding a former president who is at war with the rule of law and the Constitution, I love my party and its history and its principles. But I love my country more. And I will do all I can to defend her.”

Liz Cheney faces a tough challenge as the midterm elections draw near and also for the nomination in the next elections with Trump endorsing Harriet Hageman, a fellow Republican over Liz Cheney.

  1. However voting her conscience is honorable,we elected her to represent the people of wyoming. I will not vote for her again. She represents the Jackson crowd and not the hard working folks of Wyoming.

  2. She is no Republican nor will she ever win another election in the wonderful state of Wyoming again. I wish I could take back my vote for her in the last election! She does not represent us!!
