Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wis.), a longtime critic of former President Trump, said she has not ruled out a 2024 presidential run.
During a speech at a Mackinac political conference in Michigan, Cheney said she wouldn’t be making any announcement during the speech, sharing that her focus was to keep former President Donald Trump out of the Oval Office.
Cheney was on the House Select Committee that investigated the January 6 Capitol attacks and criticized the involvement of the former president in the attacks.
She also said she would campaign against those who challenged the results of the 2020 election, including Trump, who claimed the election was “stolen” from him.
Earlier in May, Cheney released an ad about Trump in New Hampshire, saying in a voice-over that Trump was the “only president in American history” who refused to guarantee a peaceful transfer of power.
Cheney suggested Trump has “proven” he is unfit for office and is “a risk America can never take again,” the voice-over was made alongside images of Trump and the January 6 riot at the Capitol.
Trump is now under investigation for his role in the January 6 attacks and alleged attempts to interfere in Georgia’s 2020 election.
Last September, Cheney said that she would not be a Republican if she was on the ballot, prompting speculation that she might run as an independent.
On Thursday (June 1), moderator Devin Scillian asked if she would consider a third-party run for the election, which Cheney replied she hadn’t ruled out
