Republicans are pretty serious about getting rid of Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming.
More than 100 Republican members of the House of Representatives are going to help host a fundraiser for her primary challenger Harriet Hageman.
Cheney has burned all of her bridges with her fellow Republicans. People have had enough.
More than 100 House Republicans to cohost fundraiser for Cheney challenger
First House Republicans kicked Rep. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) out of party leadership. Now they’re trying to kick her out of Congress entirely.
More than 100 House Republicans have signed on to host a fundraiser for Harriet Hageman, who is waging a primary challenge to Cheney in Wyoming. The figure amounts to roughly half of the entire House GOP. According to details about the event obtained by POLITICO, the list of hosts includes House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York, who succeeded Cheney as chair of the House GOP conference last May.
The event is slated to be held March 30 at the home of Republican fundraiser Jeff Miller, a longtime McCarthy adviser.
The Wyoming congresswoman has drawn the ire of Republicans for her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump and her continued outspoken criticism of him, as well as her decision to sit on the committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Trump endorsed Hageman last year.
Hageman’s support within the GOP conference crosses the ideological spectrum. The fundraiser has drawn the support of members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, which is closely aligned with Trump, but it is also being hosted by members of the moderate Governance Group and Main Street Partnership.
This is a rather telling moment, isn’t it?

Don’t worry about Liz Cheney.
She has a bright future ahead of her as a contributor on CNN or MSNBC.
