Frequent critic of former President Donald Trump Liz Cheney said that she will not rule out a presidential run in 2024.
“I’m not ruling anything in or out — I’ve been here a long time,” said Cheney during an interview with the New York Post.
“I think we have a huge number of interesting candidates, but I think that we’re going to be in a good position to be able to take the White House,” continued Cheney. “I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view, that’s disqualifying.”
“I think that adherence to the Constitution, adherence to your oath has got to be at the top of the list,” said Cheney “So, I think, you know that certainly will be a factor that I’m looking at and I think a number of voters will be looking at as they decide about ’24.”
Cheney has called for the Republican Party to move on from Trump. During an interview with Fox News’ Your World, Cheney stated that she would not support Trump if he were the nominee in 2024.
“I’ve been clear about my views about what happened on January 6th, about my views of the president’s culpability,” explained Cheney. “I obviously voted to impeach him. I think that it was the gravest violation of an oath of office by any president in American history. For us as a party, we have to be the party of hope and aspirations, and we cannot embrace insurrection and can’t minimize what happened January 6. I think all of us, regardless of partisanship, have an obligation and a duty to the Constitution, a duty to the peaceful transition of power.”
Meanwhile, Trump is planning on campaigning against Cheney on behalf of an endorsed challenger, which he plans on doing relatively soon.
“She is so far down in Wyoming polls that the only way she can win is numerous candidates running against her and splitting the vote,” said Trump. “Hopefully, that won’t happen. I’ll make an Endorsement soon!”
Currently, challengers against Cheney include Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard and State Representative Chuck Gray.
