It would seem that not much can help Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) remain in office after she turned against both her constituents and Republicans across America when she voted to impeach President Donald Trump and agreed to be the vice chair of the Democrats’ January 6 commission.
In fact, Wyoming’s only representative is so unpopular that she was formally censured by the Wyoming Republican Party in February after she became one of 10 Republican members of Congress to vote in favor of impeaching Trump over “insurrection” accusations.
Now, former President George W. Bush, who has also been under fire lately for his involvement in perpetuating endless wars and his criticism of Trump, plans to stump for Cheney to remain in office.
In what will be his first event related to the 2022 midterms, Bush will travel to Dallas next month to headline a fundraiser for Cheney, Fox News reported on Wednesday.
Despite RINOs and so-called Never-Trumpers being a dying breed in politics, the Republican establishment is trying to hang on by the skin of its teeth.
But Trump is refusing to let the 2022 midterms to go down without a fight.
To make good on his promise to remove Cheney from power in Wyoming, the 45th president earlier this month endorsed her challenger, Harriet Hageman, who is a member of the Republican National Committee.
“Unlike RINO Liz Cheney, Harriet is all in for America First,” Trump stated in his endorsement. “Harriet has my Complete and Total Endorsement in replacing the Democrats number one sound provider of sound bites, Liz Cheney.”
Cheney quipped back at Trump’s direct challenge to her seat, “Bring it.”

If the best chance Cheney has at keeping her seat in Congress is boasting about the support of George W. Bush, who is not in good graces with most Americans, then her campaign could be easily defeated by Trump’s army of voters.
