Liz Cheney is one of the most liberal Republicans in Congress today.
She’s now facing one of the strongest primary challenges in the country.
But now, Cheney may have just been bailed out by this top RINO.
Liz Cheney is easily the biggest “Republican in Name Only” in Washington, D.C. today.
When she’s not virtue signaling how woke she is to the left-wing media, she’s busy voting with Democrats against her fellow Republicans.
But Cheney’s antics go far beyond simply appearing on left-wing outlets like MSNBC on a regular basis.
She also actively works against other conservative champions in Congress, like Congressman Thomas Massie, whom Cheney tried to oust in 2020 after she threw her full backing behind Massie’s own RINO primary challenger.
Massie went on to win that election in a landslide, but the same cannot be said for Cheney, who may end up going down in defeat later this year when Wyoming Republicans nominate their next candidate to represent them in Congress.
But while Cheney’s voting record alone is reason enough to vote her out of office, she’s not entirely out of the running in Wyoming, despite the fact that the mountain west state is routinely labeled one of the most conservative states in the country.
And the reason for Cheney even still having a shot at winning re-election is because the D.C. establishment is giving her as much cover as they possibly can.
Now, that cover is extending into direct political donations.
Breitbart reports, “The ringleader of the establishment Republicans, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), announced on Thursday a donation to Democrat ally Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) reelection campaign.
Cheney, who is no longer recognized as a Republican by the Wyoming GOP, has received a campaign contribution from the Senate GOP leader, McConnell told Axios. When asked if he will hold a fundraiser or other campaign event with Cheney, McConnell redirected the conversation back to his lane of Senate business.”
McConnell’s donation to Cheney reveals something that many Republicans already knew about the Senate Republican Leader and where he stood on the political spectrum.
Even as Cheney routinely votes with Democrats on big-ticket items in Congress, that apparently wasn’t a deal breaker for McConnell, who decided to back her against far more conservative primary challengers.
But McConnell isn’t the only establishment Republican to support Cheney.
“McConnell and Cheney apparently believe the Wyoming member may lose her seat to Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman, a strong threat to the establishment Republican order in Washington, DC. With Hageman catching momentum heading into the August 16 GOP primary, former President George Bush has also donated the legal maximum amount to Cheney. McConnell and Bush are joined in their support of Cheney by failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney (R-UT). In March, Romney delivered a speech at a closed fundraiser for the embattled Cheney,” adds Breitbart.
The Wyoming GOP Primary will take place in August, with the winner almost certainly guaranteed to be elected to Congress in November.
