Wyoming GOP blasts Cheney for impeachment vote and statement

The Wyoming Republican Party has issued a statement strongly blasting the state's Congresswoman Liz Cheney for her vote to impeach President Trump and her public statement attacking Trump.  Their statement quoted some of the statements the party has received from a furious grassroots.
“The wind in Wyoming has been horrendous today—with gusts up to 65 miles per hour. That is nothing compared to the whirlwind created by Representative Cheney’s announcement that she would be voting to impeach President Trump, and her subsequent follow-through of doing just that,” the party said in its statement. “There has not been a time during our tenure when we have seen this type of an outcry from our fellow Republicans, with the anger and frustration being palpable in the comments we have received. Our telephone has not stopped ringing, our email is filling up, and our website has seen more traffic than at any previous time. The consensus is clear that those who are reaching out to the Party vehemently disagree with Representative Cheney’s decision and actions.”
Liz Cheney may have destroyed her political career with her attack on President Trump.  It is almost assured she will face a strong primary challenge in 2022 in a very conservative state.

If only that was possible Countrygirl1411, the Republican party could lead this nation out of this terrible place. Regular folks that have never vote Republican would consider doing so, and many would.

Until the GOP grows a back bone and kicks all RINO's out of the party they are nothing more for the most party an arm of the democrat party. I vote for the person not the party. I look at their moral values, voting record if they have ever held office and then decide if they are worthy of my vote. Sadly very few are now a days.

It looks likely that Liz Cheney will be stripped of her position in GOP House leadership. The petition to force a vote on that needed 50 signatures, but got 115, a clear majority of the GOP caucus. I wonder if Greg Murphy was one of those 115?

What do you reckon that she will run against a real candidate this time?
( January 16th, 2021 @ 8:21 pm )
In her last GOP primary, Cheney lost 25% of the vote to a political unknown who ran no campaign and had no money. She will be a deer in the headlights for a serious primary challenger. Indeed, when a serious challenger announces, it is expected that Cheney will decide to retire.

This is music to my ears. These brilliant politicians often wind up not so ... smart.
