After losing her primary election to Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman, Liz Cheney said she was considering running for President in 2024.
She said she wasn’t going to make the decision now, but would “in the coming months.”
Asked if she plans to run for president, she first deflected and argued that the GOP needs to be taken in a different direction. “We’ve now got one major political party, my party, which has really become a cult of personality, and we’ve got to get this party back to a place where we’re embracing the values and the principles on which it was founded,” she said.
Pressed again about whether she’s contemplating running for president, Cheney said, “That’s a decision that I’m going to make in the coming months, and I’m not going to make any announcements here this morning — but it is something that I am thinking about.”
Even RINOs know that Liz Cheney has no chance of winning the Republican nomination.
Mitt Romney said Liz Cheney “would not become the nominee if she were to run.”
Romney supported Cheney in her primary race against Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman.
Romney, who represents Utah in the U.S. Senate, told the South Valley Chamber of Commerce in Sandy, Utah on Thursday that Cheney would definitively not be the Republican nominee.
“I’m not going to encourage anyone to run for president. I’ve done that myself, and that’s something I’m not doing again. I don’t know if she really wants to do that. She would not become the nominee if she were to run. I can’t imagine that would occur,” Romney said alongside Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Rep. John Curtis, UT-03, the Deseret News reported.
Meanwhile, Trump continues to dominate GOP primary polls.
