(TheConservativeNews.org) – Despite the vitriol thrown in his direction by the media and liberal politicians, most GOP representatives have stuck by Donald Trump over the last few weeks. There have been a few notable exceptions, however, chiefly Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY).
Cheney, who’s the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, was the highest-ranking House Republican to vote in favor of Trump’s impeachment. As GOP Conference Chairwoman, she’s the number three Republican in the House in terms of seniority.
The decision to oppose the former president came at a cost; a secret ballot to remove Cheney from leadership was held on Wednesday, February 3. However, 145 voters opted to leave her in the position, while just 61 voted to remove her.
Therefore, Cheney will have a huge role to play in the Republican Party until at least 2022. At that point, though, her future looks uncertain. Donald Trump won almost 70% of the vote in Wyoming; Cheney’s vote against the former president was cast in defiance of the people who voted her into power. They’re unlikely to forget this slight any time soon.
