‘Haven’t Made A Decision’: Liz Cheney Refuses To Rule Out 2024 Presidential Run | Eastern North Carolina Now | Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) refused to rule out a run for the White House in 2024 on Sunday, saying she still hasn’t made a decision.

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) refused to rule out a run for the White House in 2024 on Sunday, saying she still hasn't made a decision.

    Cheney made the comments during a Sunday interview on ABC News' "This Week" with Jonathan Karl regarding the January 6 hearings.

    "I'll make a decision about '24 down the road," Cheney said.

    "I think about it less in terms of a decision about running for office, and more in terms of, you know, as an American - and as somebody who's in a position of public trust now, how do I make sure that I'm doing everything I can to do the right thing; to do what I know is right for the country, and, and to protect our Constitution," she added.

    It's not the first time Cheney has hinted at running for the Oval Office. In May 2021, the congresswoman pushed back after being removed from her role as chair of the House Republican Congress.

    "The party is going to come back stronger, and I'm going to lead the effort to do it," Cheney responded at the time. The words led to early speculation from The New York Times that she could be considering a run for president in 2024.

    If Cheney did run for the 2024 Republican nomination for president, she would be considered a longshot behind potential contenders that could include former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

    In addition, the anti-Trump GOP House member will first have to face a strong primary challenge in her own Wyoming district if she hopes to stay in Congress beyond 2022. Last month, The Daily Wire reported that Cheney's reelection campaign was sending out mailers to recruit Wyoming Democrats to change parties and vote for her in the upcoming Republican primary.

    The mailers, sent to Democrats in Wyoming, share specific instructions on how a person can switch their voter affiliation and vote for her in the August primary, according to The New York Times.

    Cheney faces Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman, whose campaign attacked the congresswoman over her controversial tactic.

    "Liz Cheney told The New York Times that she wouldn't be encouraging Democrats to raid the Republican primary, but I guess the drive to hold onto power is just too strong for her to keep her word," Hageman's campaign manager Carly Miller said. "What Cheney doesn't understand is that Democrats will drop her like a bad habit after she's no longer useful to them on the Jan. 6 committee."

    Hageman has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump. The former president has sought to primary Cheney along with other Republicans who voted to impeach him following the events of January 6, 2021.

    Cheney has been especially vocal over the events of January 6, including pressing for the prosecution of Trump during her ABC News interview. She is one of only two Republicans to serve on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) select committee. The other is Illinois Republican Adam Kinzinger, who has chosen not to run for reelection.
