Liz Cheney: 2020 Election Result Doubters Aren’t Qualified to Run in 2024

'Some of our candidates who led the charge...not to certify the election...in my view that’s disqualifying...'

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., insisted former president Donald Trump and any other Republican who questioned the certification of President Joe Biden’s win should be disqualified from becoming the Republican Party’s presidential nominee in 2024.

“I think that we’re going to be in a good position to be able to take the White House,” Cheney, who is the third-ranking GOP leader in the House, told the New York Post. “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.”

When asked if she believed Republicans would rally behind Trump again, Cheney said: “I don’t think that that’s going to happen. And I think it’s important that it not happen, given what he did,” she told the Washington Examiner.

Cheney was among 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump earlier this year on the charge that he “incited” the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

“I think that adherence to the Constitution, adherence to your oath has got to be at the top of the list. 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,” she said.

If Trump does win the Republican nomination in 2024, Cheney said she would “certainly never vote for a Democrat” but does not believe Trump “should be president again.”

Cheney also said she hasn’t ruled out running for president herself.

“I’m not ruling anything in or out — ever is a long time,” she explained.

Trump has repeatedly called for Cheney to be ousted from her GOP leadership position and ultimately from Congress.

He has vowed to back a primary campaign against her but has not yet endorsed a specific candidate.

Cheney, however, said she isn’t worried. 

“My primary is clearly going to be an important one — I am more than happy anytime and any place to debate anybody who wants to about what happened on Jan. 6 and why our oath of office requires that we make sure that that never happens again,” she said. ” And I feel confident about prevailing in my primary.”
