Dear Editor:

Liz Cheney deserves your vote in the Republican Primary.  Liz is staunch conservative as borne out by her voting record in Congress and who was respected enough by her Republican colleagues to be voted in as the chairwoman of the Republican Conference.  

She has also received strong support by Wyoming voters in each of her three elections.

But her Republican support took a hit when she voted to impeach President Trump and favored appointment of a House committee to investigate the January 6th attack on the Capitol.  

She was stripped of her Conference Chair, Wyoming Republican leadership censured her and she was kicked out of the party. 

When Liz was elected to Congress, she swore to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic” and that she would “bear true faith and allegiance to the same.” 

Nowhere in her oath did she swear allegiance to a political party or to the President.  This country was founded on the principles of the Rule of Law and the orderly transfer of power. 

No man, even a president, is above the law or can be permitted to interfere with the transfer of power from one president to another which Trump attempted to do.

Liz Cheney would not stand for this and in an act of vengeance he picked a challenger who agreed to sell her soul for his support to run against Liz. 

No matter the degree of love, loyalty or admiration one might have for the former President, this election is not about him. 

Trump is not on the ballot and his hand-picked candidate cannot be used as a stalking horse to carry out his vendetta. 

Whether he instigated the Jan. 6th attack on the Capitol, attempted to prevent the orderly transition of power, or committed a criminal act are not the issues in this election. 

No, the sole issue is selecting the most qualified candidate and that candidate is Liz Cheney who will continue to fight for the people of Wyoming.  Vote for Liz Cheney on August 16th.
