Liz Cheney Not Ruling Out 2024 White House Bid

By    |   Monday, 23 October 2023 04:18 PM EDT

Former Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., a bitter critic of former President Donald Trump who lost her congressional seat after participating in the House select committee investigating the events of Jan. 6, 2021, said she is not ruling out a run for the White House in 2024.

During an appearance Sunday on CNN's State of the Nation, Cheney, 57, said "I'm going to spend the next year, between now and the election, certainly helping to elect serious people [in both parties], helping to elect sane people to Congress."

When asked if she's ruling out a presidential bid, Cheney, a daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, said, "No, I'm not."

Republican opposition to Cheney's role as vice chair of the Jan. 6 select committee and for voting to impeach Trump the second time, led to her overwhelming loss in the 2022 Republican primary to Harriet Hageman, who won with 66.3% of the vote to Cheney's 28.9%. Hageman, backed by Trump, went on to easily win the House seat in the general election.

Cheney didn't answer directly when CNN host Jake Tapper asked if she would vote for the Democrat candidate if Trump was the Republican nominee in 2024.

"We're going to see what happens," she said. 'We're going to see how things unfold. I think Donald Trump is the single most dangerous threat we face. I would imagine that there will be a number of other candidates in the race that I think …"

Tapper interrupted Cheney and asked if she would be one.

"I think that we could well find ourselves in a situation, given what we know the Trump folks are doing, in terms of attempting to question the results of the election," she said. "We don't want a situation where the election is thrown into the House of Representatives and Donald Trump has any possibility at all of prevailing under those circumstances.

"So, we have got to elect people who believe in the Constitution and who take their responsibility seriously to Congress."
