Liz Cheney Launches PAC to Stop MAGA Candidates from Reaching Office

Liz Cheney, who was defeated by challenger Harriet Hageman last week, unveiled a new political action committee to stop members of Congress who back Donald Trump from reaching office.

Cheney filed with the Federal Election Commission to transfer the remaining cash from her federal campaign account to her new PAC.

The Republican had a $ 7 million war chest as of the end of July, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“I’m going to be very focused on working to ensure that we do everything we can not to elect election deniers,” Cheney said on ABC on Sunday morning.

“We’ve got election deniers that have been nominated for really important positions all across the country,” she added.

“And I’m going to work against those people. I’m going to work to support their opponents,” Cheney said.

Poltical targets

The RINO Republican singled out Ted Cruz for Texas and Missouri’s Josh Hawley as her main targets.

Cheney accused the pair of taking “steps that fundamentally threatened the constitutional order and structure in the aftermath of the last election.”

“So, in my view, they both have made themselves unfit for future office,” she added.

A spokesman for Cruz said: “Sen. Cruz doesn’t need or want soon-to-be-former Rep. Liz Cheney’s endorsement, and he wishes her the best of luck in the 2024 Democrat presidential primary.”

A spokesman for Hawley said: “We wish her the best.”

The Wyoming Republican added that Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy should not become speaker of the House if GOP wins in November, accusing him of being “unfaithful to the Constitution.”

“The speaker of the House is the second in line for the presidency,” she said.

“It requires somebody who understands and recognizes their duty, their oath, their obligation,” she added.

“And he’s been completely unfaithful to the Constitution and demonstrated a total lack of understanding of the significance and the importance of the role of speaker.”

“So I don’t believe he should be speaker of the House. And you know, I think that’s been very clear,” Cheney said.

Jonathan Karl, ABC News interviewer, asked: “You think the country would be worse off if he were speaker of the House?”

Cheney replied: “I don’t believe he should be speaker of the House.”

The Republican joined Representative Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and seven Democrats on the House select committee probing the January 6, 2021, Capitol attack.

Cheney Defeat

Cheney lost to Harriet Hageman last week by 37.4 points.

Trump said responded to Cheney’s loss on TRUTH Social:

“The Fake News Media has badly soiled Liz Cheney, who has just suffered the biggest defeat of a sitting Congressperson in history (broke the record of another Impeacher, Tom Rice of South Carolina!), losing by 40 points, all over the place doing interviews that nobody wants to hear,” Trump wrote.

“No wonder their ratings are sooo BAD,” he continued.

“Her record setting horrible results were a referendum on the Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs, of which she is definitely one! Amazing how they keep her on the air?”

Cheney lost favor with the party after joining the panel attempting to prove a link between Trump’s rhetoric and the January 6 attack.

She was also censured by the Wyoming GOP and lost her No. 3 House Republican spot.

When Cheney was asked if she was concerned about an investigation into the committee she vice chairs, she said: “If Kevin McCarthy, or Jim Jordan or any of the other individuals threatening to investigate the committee carry through on that threat and issue a subpoena for me to appear, I will abide by that subpoena.”

“And I will welcome the opportunity to come and explain to them exactly what we found and the threat that Donald Trump poses to the country,” she added.
