Rep. Liz Cheney supports the Democratic Legislature

GOP Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, a pariah in the Republican Party who lost her primary earlier this year, has endorsed Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan.

According to a, Cheney is scheduled to attend an event with Slotkin in Michigan on November 1 press release from Slotkin’s campaign.

“I’m proud to support Elissa Slotkin. While serving on the Armed Services Committee together, I came to know Elissa as a fine and honorable public servant who works hard for the people she represents, wants the best for the country, and does it for the right reasons,” said Cheney according to the press release. “While Elissa and I have our political disagreements, at a time when our nation faces threats at home and abroad, we need serious, responsible, substantial members like Elissa in Congress. I encourage all voters in the 7th District — Republicans, Democrats, and Independents — to support them in this election.”

Cheney, a vocal critic of former President Donald Trump, was one of the few House Republicans to have tuned for the impeachment of then-President Trump last year after the Jan. 6 Capitol riots. She was ousted from her post as Chair of the House Republican Conference later that year.

The congresswoman is one of the two GOP lawmakers serving on the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 episode.

Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman defeated Cheney earlier this year during a primary — Cheney who did served in the US House of Representatives since 2017, will leave Congress at the end of her current term.

“Rep. Cheney has shown tremendous leadership over the past two years, and while we certainly don’t agree on everything, I look forward to welcoming her to Michigan’s 7th Circuit next week to discuss the points at which all Americans can put politics aside and put our country above everything else,” Slotkin said.
