(USA Features) Former President Donald Trump will be meeting with some primary challengers to Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyoming, ahead of next year’s GOP primary and midterm elections.
“Paying close attention to the Wyoming House Primary against loser RINO Liz Cheney. Some highly respected pollsters tell me she’s toast in Wyoming after siding with Crazy Nancy Pelosi and supporting the Democrat Impeachment Hoax,” Trump said in a statement issued through his political action committee Save America on Tuesday.
“And that’s just the beginning! This is a ‘hot’ race with some very interesting candidates running against her,” he added.
“Remember though, in the end we just want ONE CANDIDATE running against Cheney,” Trump continued.
“I’ll be meeting with some of her opponents in Bedminster next week and will be making my decision on who to endorse in the next few months. JUST ONE CANDIDATE. Thank you!” the former president said.
Trump has vowed for months to back a primary challenger to Cheney after she signed on to impeach him a second time following the Jan. 6 protest at the U.S. Capitol that got out of hand and led to a few hundred people storming the building.
The former president’s intensity grew after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi picked Cheney as the sole Republican for her January 6 investigatory committee that Republicans have derided as politically motivated.
“It’s very important that we have members who are committed to upholding the rule of law and members who are committed to their oaths to the Constitution,” she told CNN.
“And I would certainly hope that the minority leader will be guided by that as he makes his choices.”
For voting to impeach Trump, the GOP congressional members voted to remove Cheney from her leadership of the House Republican Conference, the third-ranking position within the party, in May.
Trump responded at the time as well.
“Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being. I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party,” the former president said.
“She is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East Disaster, draining our wealth and depleting our Great Military, the worst decision in our Country’s history. I look forward to soon watching her as a Paid Contributor on CNN or MSDNC!” Trump added.
The most recent polling indicates Cheney is highly vulnerable in a primary.
