We suspect that if former President Donald Trump and many of his followers have any say, this won’t happen. Still, if you know how to decipher political-speak, Liz Cheney is clearly suggesting she may run for the presidency.
“House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney is not ruling out a potential presidential bid, The Post has learned,” according to the New York Post.
“‘I’m not ruling anything in or out — I’ve been here a long time,’ she told The Post when asked if she would ever consider running in the future. [emphasis added]
“The Wyoming Republican — who has been a frequent target of former President Donald Trump — said there are a number of contenders she sees as having potential for the 2024 nomination, adding that she believes the lawmakers who led the efforts on challenging the election on Jan. 6 should be out of the running. [emphasis added]
“‘I think we have a huge number of interesting candidates, but I think that we’re going to be in a good position to be able to take the White House. I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view that’s disqualifying,’ she said… [emphasis added]
“Cheney said she’s optimistic about Republicans’ odds of taking back the House and Senate in 2022 and the White House in 2024, adding she believes there is a way to retain blue-collar voters while regaining ground with suburban women in the next cycle.
“‘I do and I think Reagan, for example, showed the way — you look at Reagan, he won 49 states and his reelection people forget that, but that coalition that he built because he was able to convey what the party stands for, being able to convey our belief in substance and policy and optimism,” she said. “I think that the policies of deregulation, tax cuts, of defending the United States, those are policies that are really important. And, and I think you know, I’m confident that we can build a coalition that’s a winning coalition,’ she said.” [emphasis added]
