Here’s what we know…
On Sunday (July 3), in an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) revealed she hasn’t ruled out a Presidential run in 2024.
The former rising star — who lost much of her influence and support in the GOP after refusing to accept former President Donald Trump’s election fraud claims — discussed the decision with ABC’s chief Washington correspondent and This Week’s co-anchor.
“I’ll make a decision about ’24 down the road,” Cheney noted, adding that her focus was “protecting the nation from Trump.”
Cheney has been one of Trump’s most outspoken since she was one of ten Republicans in the House of Representatives to vote to impeach Trump following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Now, as the vice-chair of the Jan. 6 Select Committee, Cheney’s name hasn’t featured on any lists ranking potential successors to Trump, making the Wyoming Republican’s nomination a long shot if she does choose to run.
But Cheney is dead set that Trump should be kept out of the Oval office.
“A man as dangerous as Donald Trump can absolutely never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again,” Cheney contended, adding that she believes the GOP “can’t survive” if Trump wins the 2024 nomination.
She also substantiated her possible 2024 run, saying, “Those of us who believe in Republican principles and ideals have a responsibility to try to lead the party back to what it can be.”
But Trump, who still has the most influence in the GOP continues to tease his 2024, with outlets reporting the former President would announce at the end of July.
