Liz Cheney says her re-election bid is “a referendum on the future of the Republican Party”

During a interview during the Wall Street Journal’s “Women, Power and Equity” Rep. Liz Cheney said she sees her re-election bid as “a referendum on the future of the Republican Party.”

Cheney said she “anticipates it’s going to be a hard-fought race,” that will receive national attention.

“I really do think it’s one that will be a moment where the people of Wyoming can demonstrate to the country our commitment to the Constitution.” Cheney continued, saying she believes the race will be “very important in terms of the future of the party and the future of our republic.”

Cheney has been very vocal against former President Trump and was recently ousted from her conference chair leadership role in the House.

That role now belong to Rep. Elise Stefanik, a staunch Trump supporter.
