Liz Cheney attacked Donald Trump and her Republican colleagues and said she is considering running for president in 2024 in her first interview on Wednesday morning - just hours after losing her primary by 37 points.
The defeated GOP Representative said the U.S. is facing its biggest challenge since the Civil War and said she will do 'whatever it takes' to keep the former president out of the White House in her appearance with Savannah Guthrie on NBC's Today show.
The three-term congresswoman for Wyoming's at-large district placed the blame for her 37.4-point loss Tuesday night solely on former President Donald Trump, who backed lawyer Harriet Hageman.
She refused to accept any suggestions that her focus turned away from issues important to Wyomingites in her mission to dethrone Trump. Cheney is one of just two Republicans on the House select committee attempting to peg the Capitol attack on Trump – even though deep red Wyoming was the state with the largest population to cast their ballots for Trump in 2020.
'There are some things that have to be above politics,' she said of turning against the leader of the modern Republican Party.
