‘I don’t think she’s gone’: Mitt Romney hopes ‘future president’ Liz Cheney wins her Wyoming primary

U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) thinks, regardless of what happens in Wyoming’s Republican primary on Tuesday, his ally, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

“Her political future is something I’m sure she’s considered,” he told Business Insider on August 3.

“I hope she wins,” the RINO known by many conservatives as “Mittens” continued. “I’ve hosted fundraisers for her. But I recognize that in the time of Trump that may not be possible.”

As American Wire has been reporting, things aren’t looking too good for the Republican who eagerly joined Democrats in the so-called “investigation” into the events of January 6, 2021.

When CNN went to Wyoming to ask voters if they would vote to reelect Cheney after her attacks on former President Donald Trump, the answer was a resounding “hell no!”

And her recruitment of Yellowstone star Kevin Costner to pose as a “real man” in support of her crashed faster than you can say “Dutton Ranch.”

Even her dear old dad, former Vice President Dick Cheney, couldn’t protect her from the scorn of conservatives across the nation.

In fact, as BizPac Review reported in July, Liz Cheney is not only disliked in Wyoming, last year, she was the “the least popular member of Congress,” according to CNN Senior Data Reporter Harry Enten, who added that “we shouldn’t mistake adoring press coverage and bipartisan bona fides for popularity in the place where popularity matters most for Cheney: Wyoming.”

Citing a late-2021 survey called the Cooperative Election Study (CES), Enten wrote, “Cheney sported a 72% disapproval rating in the late 2021 edition of the survey, which was fielded about 10 months after she voted to impeach Trump.”

“That was up nearly 40 points from her 26% disapproval rating in the late 2020 version, which was fielded before Cheney’s vote,” he continued. “All told, Cheney was the least popular member of Congress in the 2021 survey.”

And on Tuesday, Cheney will be facing off against an opponent who has been backed by President Trump. According to Insider, Harriet Hageman is currently crushing Cheney with a double-digit lead.

Still, Romney remains optimistic.

“We’ll see what happens,” he said. “But I don’t think she’s gone by any means. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her run for president.”

Online, many users feel it’s far more likely that Romney will soon disappear along with Cheney.

“On Tuesday the Republican party will rid itself of the stains the ‘Cheney’ name has put on it by removing @RepLizCheney from the ballot,” wrote one Twitter user. “Next, @MittRomney needs to be contained with oversight until he is removed. #StandWithTrump.”

“Hopefully, Romney will suffer the same fate as Liz in the primary of 2024,” tweeted another.

And a third user says Cheney has zero chances of success.

“She has no chance of winning either one,” the user tweeted, “her days left in politics are few.”
