Rep. Liz Cheney claimed she can “absolutely” win re-election during a recent interview despite a horrific approval rating and being disowned by much of the party.
Former Presiden Trump has also endorsed her opponent Harriet Haberman.
CBS’s Leslie Stahl asked Cheney “The Republican Party here has disowned you. They’ve called for your resignation. We’ve been told your approval rating here is down around 30%. Can you win this seat?”
Cheney replied. “Absolutely. I think it’s going to be the most important House race in 2022, and it will be one where people do have the opportunity to say we want to stand for the Constitution.”
“A vote against me in this race, a vote for whomever Donald Trump has endorsed, is a vote for somebody who’s willing to perpetuate the big lie, somebody who’s put allegiance to Trump above allegiance to the Constitution,” she added.
