Liz Cheney Pledges

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming), the House Republican with the strongest record of opposition to President Trump, conceded her primary election loss on Tuesday but vowed to continue her fight against Trump and the election-denying movement he leads in a speech that evening.

The latest news table Predicts that she will be defeated by Trump-backed attorney Harriet Hageman.

Cheney declared in her remarks, “This primary election is over.” However, “the real work starts now.”
She said on NBC’s “Today” show on Wednesday morning that she is “thinking about” a presidential candidacy and will decide in the “coming months.”

Cheney is the eighth of the ten House Republicans who voted for Trump’s second impeachment to announce that he will not be seeking reelection. Her defeat was expected, but it is nevertheless a crucial milestone in the larger battle over the future of the Republican Party.

Cheney, who was once seen as a rising star, was removed from House GOP leadership last year due to her unwavering opposition to the former President, and she has since trailed in domestic polls while serving as chair of the House select committee investigating the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Cheney did not officially reveal her plans for the future on Tuesday night, but she did allude to a possible career in electoral politics.

“Abraham Lincoln, the great and original champion of our party, was beaten in elections for the Senate and the House before he won the most important election of all,” she remarked. Lincoln won in the end; he preserved the Union and established the rights and responsibilities of citizens for all time.

Cheney’s team has been working all night to get papers submitted to the FEC for a leadership PAC they want to title “The Great Task.” An aide told Us that this is the first of several upcoming moves for Cheney as she begins to implement ideas from her election night speech and begins a new chapter after her crushing loss. The “great task” Lincoln talked of at Gettysburg is reflected in the PAC’s name.

As a clear rebuttal to Trump’s behaviour after losing the 2020 election, Cheney’s attempt to convey dignity in defeat in her election night address was itself an effective political statement.

“The principles we’re all sworn to uphold take precedence above any congressional seat or other offices in the land. Furthermore, I was aware of the political fallout that could result from doing my duty “as she put it. “Our democratic system depends on the integrity of all political hopefuls to accept the results of elections with grace and dignity. That primary election tonight went to Harriet Hageman, who got the most votes. Ultimately, she was victorious. We lost the election and I called her to tell her.”

She is a staunch conservative and a member of the Republican Party, but she has an uphill battle in a state that Trump won by over 70% in 2020. As vice head of the January 6 committee and the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, who remains popular in the state, Cheney has become a top target for Trump supporters.

Cheney warned that the future of American democracy was in jeopardy, saying, “Our survival is not guaranteed.” He cited Republican efforts at the state level to decertify 2020 election results and GOP midterm candidates who have already begun casting doubt on future ballots.

She warned that if we do not “condemn the schemes and the lies, and hold those responsible to account,” we will be “excusing this conduct,” and “it will become a feature of all elections.” It’s over for the United States of America.

Since Trump left Washington, his control over the Republican Party has been repeatedly demonstrated. Now that the votes are in from Wyoming, Cheney becomes the fourth Republican House member who voted to impeach Trump to lose her primary. There were four others who decided against seeking reelection. The two remaining states, California and Washington, both have nonpartisan primary systems, which helped the survivors. Although a late campaign to get Democrats and independents to register for the GOP primary would have swayed the final tally, Cheney had no such cushion.

Hageman, who believes Trump’s exaggerated claims of election fraud and has deemed the 2020 election “rigged,” has the support of several prominent Republicans on Capitol Hill. On Monday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a Hageman backer, claimed the Wyoming election was “going to be a referendum on the January 6 committee.”

On Tuesday, Cheney also commented on the recent search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, condemning the former President’s efforts to create resentment among his fans and perhaps imperil FBI agents engaged in the raid by publishing some of their names.

“To do that on purpose and with malice is a serious offence. Nobody who considers themselves a true American should ignore or cower in the face of such threats “in her words Our country is too magnificent to be run by an angry mob stirred up on social media.

Hours after Cheney’s grim warning in Jackson, Hageman greeted Trump and congressional Republicans at a victory rally in Cheyenne.

“What Wyoming has demonstrated today is that while it may not be easy, we can dislodge established politicians who believe they’ve climbed above the people they are supposed to represent and serve,” Hageman said.

Trump proclaimed Cheney’s defeat “a tremendous result for America” on his own social media site, before labelling her “spiteful” and “sanctimonious.”

As Trump put it, “now she may finally disappear into the depths of political obscurity where I am sure, she will be much happy than she is right now.”

Sarah Palin Hopes To Return To Politics In Alaska

A significant person from the GOP’s recent past, who has been absent from the electoral map for more than a decade, is seeking to make a comeback while Cheney is lost in the political wilderness. Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and the Republican Party’s vice presidential contender in 2008, was on the ballot again on Tuesday. Her rise to prominence paved the way for the Trump era in the party.

In this version of events, she was one of three candidates fighting to finish out the term of the late Republican Representative Don Young’s at-large House seat, and she was the only one who had been endorsed by President Trump. Unfortunately, LNT predicts that no candidate will receive a majority of the vote in that contest, thus the counting will move on to ranked-choice voting on August 31.

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin faced a battle against Republican Nick Begich III, heir to one of the state’s most prominent Democratic families, and former state representative Mary Peltola, a Democrat who received the endorsement of independent Al Gross after Gross pulled out of the campaign.

There was a primary election going on at the same time as the special election between the three candidates for the at-large House seat that will be vacant until November. Republican Tara Sweeney, a former assistant secretary for Indian relations in the US Interior Department, is expected to proceed alongside the other two Democrats, as reported by Media.

Voters Will Judge A Republican Senator Who Voted To Imprison Trump

Despite all the attention paid to what happened to Cheney in Wyoming, Republican Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, who voted to convict Trump during his second impeachment hearing, faced additional opposition this year because of her lack of loyalty to the former President. But Murkowski, the newest member of a storied political family in the state, had a greater chance of winning than Cheney did.

Much of the credit goes to the state’s new nonpartisan top-four primary, which, like the House race, advances the top four candidates to the general election, where a ranked-choice vote will be used if no one obtains a majority.

we predicts that Murkowski, Republican Kelly Tshibaka, and Democrat Patricia Chesbro will face off in the general election this November. Former Alaska Department of Administration Commissioner Tshibaka, who is favoured by Trump, is running against incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski, and the top-four system is expected to help Murkowski.

Historically, Murkowski has had bipartisan support in Alaska, where her father, Frank Murkowski, was elected to the Senate and later to the governorship. In 2002, he made the decision to promote his daughter to her current position. After losing the Republican primary to Joe Miller in 2010, Murkowski ran a write-in campaign and went on to win the general election.

LNT predicts that Governor Mike Dunleavy, a Republican, Democratic challenger Les Gara, and independent former Governor Bill Walker, a Democrat, and an unnamed fourth contender will all get it to the general election in November for the governor’s office.

If Walker hadn’t endorsed Democrat Mark Begich in the last days of the 2018 campaign, he very certainly would have lost his reelection effort to Republican Mike Dunleavy.

In a head-to-head matchup, Dunleavy, who is running for reelection, narrowly prevailed.
