Liz Cheney Leans on Democrats to Save Her Seat

Republicans in Wyoming have turned against Cheney in droves since January 6th.

Cheney’s actions in the state show she understands the numbers. She has avoided town halls and forums in deep red counties in favor of tightly controlled events. She speaks at gatherings hosted by bipartisan organizations answering pre-selected questions.

“She’s not in the state, she has not been anywhere, maybe one or two places,” prominent Republican donor Nancy Donovan said. “She doesn’t show up. She’s very entitled. Her parents have events at their house, I’ve spent money to go to her house to fund her. I truly will never vote for her again.”

Though her campaign says she wont be outright courting Democrats, she’s been putting in the work out of sight. Some Democrat voters are willing to switch parties and vote for her, according to Politico.

“I think her politics are crap, but I like how much hate she gets from the people of Wyoming,” said a 27-year-old event planner who will register as a Republican for the first time to vote for Cheney. He asked not to be named because “it’s a small town.”

Pete Jenkins, a 54 year old contractor and longtime Wyoming resident, says he personally identifies as a Democrat but is registered as a Republican to have a voice in Wyoming politics. He intends to vote for Cheney, and has heard the same from Democrats around town.

“I think it’s a fairly popular thing,” he said of the party-switchers-for-Cheney movement.

Go home Cheney your not a D or a R . Your more of a S or a C. Besides being worthless.

Whatever. As a representative she is one of only 435, and the house is most likely switching to republikan. Whether re-elected or not she will have NO and be given NO power, and every democrat vote she gets will only harm her democrat opponent.

Interesting, but since virtually no Republicans will vote for her, I doubt that will work. The fact that Dems are willing to vote for her says it all. She will lose in the primary.

The only party switcher should be Cheney herself.
