Days after Wyoming’s primary loss, anti-Trump Republican Liz Cheney plans to run for president in 2024

Just days after losing in the Republican primary, Liz Cheney has said she plans to run for president in the 2024 US election.

Liz Cheney, daughter of former US Vice President Dick Cheney, lost nearly 40 points to Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman in Wyoming. In her speech, Liz Cheney warned that “No American should support election deniers, in any position of real responsibility, because their refusal to uphold the rule of law will corrupt our future.”

Former President Donald Trump had repeatedly denied losing the 2020 U.S. polls to Joe Biden as rioters stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Cheney later voted to impeach Trump for inciting the riots of the Capitol.

Cheney, 56, remained defiant after her defeat saying she will make her decision to run for president in the “coming months”.

“I have said since January 6 that I will do whatever it takes to ensure that Donald Trump is never near the Oval Office again – and I mean it,” the US congresswoman said as she lost her headquarters in Wyoming.

Cheney trailed Hageman in pre-poll polls even as she sought to challenge Trump’s grip on the Republican Party. However, Trump supporters within the Wyoming Republican Party have come out against Cheney, with former President Trump accusing her of being “disloyal.”
