Liz Cheney says she's not running for president
Cheney said it was important that Trump "never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office."
Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney says she is not running for president, after losing her House GOP leadership post amid her public clashes with former President Trump over his allegations of widespread 2020 election voting fraud.
"I am not, Bret," Cheney said Thursday evening when asked by Fox News anchor Bret Baier about whether she'll run for president in 2024.
The three-term congressman's opposition to Trump's actions, words and voting allegations has resulted in speculation that she will mount a presidential campaign as an anti-Trump candidate.
Cheney voted after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to impeach Trump, on the argument he incited the breach. She survived a first vote among the House Republican Conference but was removed in a second vote Wednesday.
"What I think is really important is," Cheney continued in the interview, "that we make sure that he never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office," Cheney said of Trump.
