Cheney Attacks DeSantis and Fawns Over Democrat Partners

In an interview with the New York Times, RINO Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) attacked Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — while admitting that she prefers to work with her Democrat colleagues over Republicans.

During the friendly interview with the left-wing newspaper, which was published on Sunday, the Wyoming congresswoman stated that she “would find it very difficult” to support DeSantis in a general election against a Democrat, should the Florida governor become the Republican Party’s nominee for president in 2024.

“I think that Ron DeSantis has lined himself up almost entirely with Donald Trump, and I think that’s very dangerous,” Cheney claimed.

The congresswoman then went on to note that she prefers to work with Democrats in Congress over Republicans, specifically mentioning the names of several female colleagues.

“I would much rather serve with Mikie Sherrill and Chrissy Houlahan and Elissa Slotkin than Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert, even though on substance certainly I have big disagreements with the Democratic women I just mentioned,” Cheney explained. “But they love this country, they do their homework and they are people that are trying to do the right thing for the country.”

The Times article reported that Cheney’s chances of winning in her upcoming August 16 primary are slim at best, as polls show her losing to her Trump-endorsed primary challenger, Harriet Hageman, by more than 20 points.

Voters within Wyoming have expressed their displeasure with Cheney’s actions in Congress, especially with her decision to side with Democrats on a variety of issues and her hatred of former President Donald Trump and his supporters.

Speaking with CNN recently, the Wyoming congresswoman claimed that she doesn’t expect to lose her primary race, while at the same time saying that losing may end up being the price that she pays for supposedly standing up to Trump.

“If the cost of standing up for the Constitution is losing the House seat, then that’s a price I’m willing to pay,” Cheney said.

Even Republicans who somewhat agree with the Wyoming congresswoman’s goals have argued that she is going about trying to achieve them in the wrong way.

“It depends on if you want to go out in a blaze of glory and be ineffective or if you want to try to be effective. I respect her but I wouldn’t have made the same choice,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX).

While Cheney is attacking DeSantis for being pro-Trump, the Florida governor has previously called out the congresswoman for aligning herself with Democrats — especially regarding the partisan House Select January 6 Committee.

“Cheney is totally off the rails with her nonsense,” the Republican governor said. “And I think she’s not really a Republican in terms of what she’s doing. We want people that are going to fight the left. And that’s what we need to do in this country.”

“That’s what we’re doing in Florida, standing up for people’s freedoms,” DeSantis added. “We’re opposing wokeness. We’re opposing all these things. To act like the main issue in this country is things that happened over a year ago, I can tell you in Florida that’s not what Floridians are concerned about. They’re concerned about inflation and gas prices.”

“So I think focusing on the issues and showing that we stand for things that matter to people is the way forward,” he concluded. “To have a vendetta against Donald Trump and to constantly be bringing this up is just not something that I think Republican voters are interested in.”
