(AbsoluteNews.com) – In the weeks after the January 6 riot incident, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) spoke out forcefully against former President Donald Trump. The congresswoman even voted to impeach him. She has since faced severe backlash from her party and recently, the Wyoming GOP moved against her.
On Saturday, November 13, the Wyoming Republican Party voted to no longer recognize Cheney as a member of the state GOP. The vote was extremely close, 31 to 29, and follows similar votes in a number of counties. According to a report by the Casper Star-Tribune, the decision was made because the congresswoman has not offered any “quantifiable or undisputed evidence” to support her vote to impeach Trump.

Critics of the vote pointed out that Cheney voted with President Trump roughly 93% of time, more than Republicans like Rep. Jim Jordan (OH) and Matt Gaetz (FL). However, it seems that didn’t matter to the Wyoming GOP because members felt like her actions during the second impeachment proceedings against the former president were so egregious they could not move past what she did.
For his part, Trump has made it a personal mission to defeat Cheney in the Republican primary. In September, he endorsed challenger Harriet Hageman. He called Cheney a “warmonger and disloyal Republican” who needs to go.
