    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said on Sunday that she will support the opponents of GOP candidates whom she deems "election deniers."

    Cheney shared the comments Sunday during an appearance on ABC's "This Week."

    "I'm going to be very focused on working to ensure that we do everything we can not to elect election deniers," she said during the interview.

    "We've got election deniers that have been nominated for really important positions all across the country," she said. "I'm going to work against those people. I'm going to work to support their opponents."

    The remarks come after Cheney suffered a landslide loss in last week's Wyoming GOP primary on Tuesday. Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman defeated her.

    Hageman more than doubled Cheney's totals in the Republican primary battle. With 99% of the vote reported, Hageman took 66.3% of the votes to Cheney's 28.9%.

    "Wyoming has spoken on behalf of everyone all across this great country who believes in the American dream, who believes in liberty, and who recognizes that our natural rights - the freedom of speech, freedom of religion, equal protection and due process, come from God, they do not come from the Government," Hageman said in a victory speech on Tuesday night. "Wyoming has spoken on behalf of everyone who understands that our government is a government of, by and for the people."

    Cheney's latest words seem to show she remains defiant in her quest against former President Donald Trump. Though rejected by voters in her own state, a left-leaning panel on ABC's "This Week" offered words of praise.

    Cheney is "committed not only to sort of take down Donald Trump but to take down the sickness of her party," The Atlantic's staff writer Mark Leibovich said. "I think she will be an extremely relevant figure in her party."

    The panel also included glowing remarks from USA Today's Susan Page, who suggested Cheney could run for president in any of the next three presidential election cycles.

    "Politics is not a straight line. Liz Cheney is 56 years old. She could run for president in 2024 or 2028 or 2032," Page said.

    On Wednesday morning after her primary loss, Cheney hinted that she might be considering a future presidential run.

    "I will be doing whatever it takes to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office," Cheney said in an interview on the "Today Show."

    When asked about running for president in 2024, she responded that it "is something I'm thinking about and I'll make a decision in the coming months."

    When asked about a White House run on Sunday, Cheney told ABC "This Week" co-anchor Jonathan Karl, that she understands why the Republican National Committee "would not want me on a debate stage with Donald Trump."

    "I would imagine Donald Trump isn't too interested in that either," she added.

    Politico also reported Wednesday that Cheney intends to launch a new organization in the coming weeks. It is unclear what the group will entail, but it plans to oppose Trump in any future presidential campaign.

    "In coming weeks, Liz will be launching an organization to educate the American people about the ongoing threat to our Republic, and to mobilize a unified effort to oppose any Donald Trump campaign for president," Cheney spokesperson Jeremy Adler told the outlet.
