Since it seems doubtful that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) would win the 2022 Republican primary, the establishment media is pushing her for a 2024 presidential bid.
Many in the media believe that Cheney will lose the August 16 primary because she is trailing Harriet Hageman by 30 points and are, as a result, preparing her for a political comeback as a career politician in 2024.
2016 was Cheney’s first election to Congress. After becoming preoccupied on opposing former President Donald Trump, her political career has taken a turn for the worse six years later. Cheney’s infatuation has been supported politically by the establishment media, which may have ended her chances of becoming governor of Wyoming.
Trump received approximately 70% of the vote in Wyoming in 2020. Pollsters claim that Cheney’s opposition to Trump is the main factor in her defeat by Hageman.
“Is Liz Cheney finished?” The Week was how Harold Maass headlined his article on Monday. In the essay, Maass asserted that “Losing this primary won’t end Cheney’s political career. Conservatives might see Cheney differently” after Trump is gone, he mused.
Chuck Todd, presenter of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” questioned Democrat Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA) on Sunday about whether Cheney would still be a contender in 2024 if she lost the Wyoming primary.
“If she doesn’t come through this primary and come back to Congress, there are so many things that she can do in the future for our country. I don’t want to speculate. She’s said herself she doesn’t know what her future plans would be.” Luria stated.
Liz Cheney prepares for a primary loss as attention turns to 2024, according to a Friday article by the Associated Press. In the piece, Cheney’s potential primary loss was reframed as a benefit for him in 2024.

“[A]s primary day approaches, there is also a pervasive belief among Cheney’s team that her unorthodox strategy in 2022 may put her in a stronger position for the 2024 presidential contest,” the AP wrote. “Cheney’s fierce anti-Trump message as vice chairman of the congressional committee investigating the insurrection has strengthened her national brand while expanding a national network of donors and Trump critics in both parties who could boost a prospective White House run.”
