(Headline USA) Soon-to-be former Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-Wyo., endorsed a second Democrat candidate ahead of next week’s midterm elections, throwing her support behind Ohio Senate candidate Tim Ryan instead of Republican JD Vance.
“I would not vote for J.D. Vance,” Cheney, who recently lost her primary bid for reelection, said during a discussion at Cleveland State University.
When asked if she would vote for Ryan if she was an Ohio-registered voter, Cheney said: “I would.”
Congrats to J.D. Vance on this great news!
Not getting an endorsement from Liz Cheney can do wonders for your campaign.

Ryan responded to Cheney’s endorsement by claiming they both are tired of the “extremism” of the Republican Party.
“Do you believe in democracy? Do you believe in the rule of law? Do you believe that elections are free and fair? And if you agree on those things, then you know welcome to the United States, you’re an American. And Liz Cheney and I agree on that,” Ryan said. “And so, Liz Cheney’s endorsement is very welcome.”
Ryan is the second Democrat candidate Cheney has endorsed in recent weeks. The first was Michigan Democrat Rep. Elissa Slotkin.
