Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-Wyo.) announcement she may consider a Presidential bud in 2024, has ignited talk among Democrats about the effect a pro-Democracy, anti-Trump conservative candidate would have on President Joe Biden’s political future.
After losing her primary to Trump-endorsed challenger Harriet Hageman, Cheney made an impassioned speech warning voters about re-electing Trump in 2024. The next day, the Wyoming Republican previewed a prospective 2024 Presidential bid in her televised interview.
“It is something I’m thinking about, and I’ll make a decision in the coming months,” Cheney stated on the Today show when asked about her running in 2024.
Cheney has made her disdain clear regarding Trump’s MAGA culture within the GOP, saying she would do “whatever it takes” to eliminate Trump from being the country’s future President.
But, Democrats are seeing a potential Cheney Presidential campaign as a big unknown.
On Thursday (August 17), Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-Pa.) expressed administration for “what Liz has done. She’s sacrificed her congressional career to stand up to Trump.”
But Boyle threw into question whether Cheney’s bid would help or hinder Trump.
“As for 2024,” Boyle stated, “it’s unclear to me if she ran as an independent that it would hurt Trump. There’s a danger she might inadvertently help Trump more than hurt him.”
Following Cheney’s double-digit defeat in the primaries, Biden called to congratulate the Wyoming Congresswoman, despite the possibility that a 2024 bid by Cheney could shake up the Presidential elections.
