(NPR) – Liz Cheney has her sights set on Donald Trump.
The Wyoming congresswoman may have lost her bid for reelection this past week, but she is making it her mission to ensure Trump is never president again.
“I believe that Donald Trump continues to pose a very grave threat and risk to our republic,” Cheney said on NBC’s Today show the day after her primary loss. “And I think that defeating him is going to require a broad and united front of Republicans, Democrats and independents, and that’s what I intend to be a part of.”
Cheney is taking a few steps to try and make that possible:
- Forming a PAC: After her loss, she immediately formed a political action committee called The Great Task;
- Continued Jan. 6 committee hearings: As the vice chair of the House Jan. 6 committee, she is continuing hearings this fall with the aim of continuing to expose Trump’s conduct that day;
- A potential run for president: Cheney says she’s “thinking about” a run, even possibly an independent bid.
