Liz Cheney Vows to Join Dems if Trump is 2024 Candidate

'I certainly will do whatever it takes to make sure Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office... '

(Headline USA) Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-Wyo., said she will leave the GOP and campaign for Democrats if former President Donald Trump is the Republican presidential candidate in 2024.

Asked during a discussion at the Texas Tribune Festival over the weekend whether she would be willing to switch parties to boost Democrat candidates, Cheney said: “Yes” — which is the first time she’s been explicit about her willingness to join the other party, according to NBC News.

“I certainly will do whatever it takes to make sure Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office,” ​she said. “I’m going to make sure Donald Trump, make sure he’s not the nominee. And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.”​

“Partisanship has to have a limit,” Cheney added, arguing that no Republican should support Trump or other GOP candidates like Trump.

She cited Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin as an example, claiming that he has “demonstrated that he’s somebody who has not bought into the toxin of Donald Trump, but he campaigned recently for Kari Lake, who’s an election denier, who is dangerous.”

“That’s the kind of thing we cannot see in our party. We cannot see an accommodation like that, and I think it’s very important that we be clear about that,” Cheney said.

Cheney added that her plan is to “do everything I can to make sure that Kari Lake is not elected,” including possibly campaigning for Lake’s Democrat opponent, Katie Hobbs.

In August, Cheney lost her reelection bid soundly to Trump-backed Republican Harriet Hageman. Trump celebrated Cheney’s loss, calling her a “fool.”

“Congratulations to Harriet Hageman on her great and very decisive WIN in Wyoming. This is a wonderful result for America, and a complete rebuke of the Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs,” he said, referring to the Democrats’ partisan Jan. 6 congressional committee.
