Liz Cheney Endorses Tim Ryan In Ohio Senate Race
(RepublicanNews.org) – After the Capitol riots on January 6 prompted the formation of a special committee in the House to investigate the matter, Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) became one of only two Republicans to join the probing entity. She subsequently became the face of the committee, losing support from her constituents in Wyoming. The legislator lost her congressional seat in August.
On November 1, the fallen representative made her loyalties clear by endorsing Democratic Representative Tim Ryan (OH) over his competitor J.D. Vance (R) in the race for the Senate. Former President Donald Trump backed the Ohio Republican in the race, and Cheney vowed after she lost her race to do everything she could to keep anyone who denied the validity of the 2020 election out of office.

During a recent talk with journalist Judy Woodruff, Cheney said she “would not vote for… Vance.” Instead, if she were a resident of Ohio, the lawmaker confirmed she would cast her ballot for the Democrat. The Republican Senate hopeful believes the 2020 general election was stolen from Trump and given to President Joe Biden. Although Vance expects to pull out a victory during the midterm elections, he recently said he would accept the outcome of this race should he lose.
The Trump-backed candidate is exactly the type of person Cheney promised to keep out of Congress and out of other positions across the US. After her loss, Cheney said she would “work against those people.” But does her support either way matter?
