Cheney finally announces plans to seek reelection

U.S. Congress

Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney made it official Thursday, she is seeking reelection. Cheney made the announcement in a videosaying that serving as Wyoming’s Congresswoman has been the highest honor in her professional life. She told voters there are things they can count on.

“When I know something is wrong I will say so. I won’t waiver or back down, I won’t surrender to pressure or intimidation, I know where to draw the line, and I know that some things aren’t for sale,” said Cheney.

Cheney has angered many republicans for voting to impeach former President Donald Trump. For that reason she will face Cheyenne attorney Harriet Hageman and a host of others in the republican primary. Trump will speak on Hageman’s behalf this weekend.
