After the Wyoming Republican Party decided to not recognize Rep. Liz Cheney in a 31-29 vote, Republican National Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said she believes that Cheney is still a member of the Republican Party.  “Obviously she’s still a Republican,” McDaniel said at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington.

“But I get from a state party standpoint when you have a congressperson or a senator who’s not supporting your state party, who’s not talking about electing Republicans up and down the ballot,” she continued. “The thing about that everyone should be taking note is that a state party is the most grassroots body that the state has. These are people who are running in their district committee and they’re going to their county convention and they’re getting on their state committee and they really represent where the party is in their state.” she continued.

Cheney was one of the Republicans who broke with her party to impeach President Donald Trump for “inciting” the January 6th riots.  Cheney has been a frequent critic of both President Trump and the Republican Party.  After House Republicans booted her from her position as conference chair, she said “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” regarding Trump’s impeachment vote in Congress.

Rep. Cheney’s office responded to Mcdaniel’s statement, saying it was “laughable to suggest Liz is anything but a committed conservative Republican.”.  They further said “She is bound by her oath to the Constitution. Sadly, a portion of the Wyoming GOP leadership has abandoned that fundamental principle, and instead allowed themselves to be held hostage to the lies of a dangerous and irrational man,”
