As the Republican party faces internal divisions following the 2020 Presidential election, many eyes have turned to Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney, an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump. Cheney gained national attention in recent weeks, becoming the only House Republican to vote in favor of impeachment proceedings against Trump. As a result, the veteran Congresswoman was met with fierce criticism from many party members, even facing calls for her ouster from her leadership position in the House. But instead of backing down, Cheney is reportedly weighing her options—including a possible third-party Presidential run. According to sources speaking to The Wall Street Journal, the former Wyoming State Treasurer and U.S. Secretary of State nominee is currently exploring her options for a potential White House bid. Cheney—who has represented Wyoming in Congress since 2018—has reportedly already consulted with political advisers and is reportedly considering a third-party platform. Cheney’s potential run would be considered an act of defiance against the current state of the Republican party, where factionalism reigns, particularly in the wake of the 2020 election and Trump’s refusal to concede. The Republican party is currently facing a fierce divide between a majority of more traditional members and several hardline Trump supporters, making Cheney’s potential run especially notable. It remains to be seen whether or not Cheney will take the plunge and make an official bid for the White House. If she does choose to run, it could potentially shift the dynamics of the 2024 Presidential election and serve as a symbolic move of resistance against the more hardline factions of her party.
