The loathsome Liz Cheney isn’t going down without a fight and she’s just enlisted a big time fundraiser to help her raise some campaign cash:
FOX NEWS – The only two living former Republican presidents are taking opposite sides in the nasty intra-GOP battle to oust Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming from Congress.
Former President George W. Bush will headline a fundraiser for Cheney on Oct. 18 in Dallas, a Republican source familiar with the event confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday morning.
Cheney is the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, who served as Bush’s vice president during his two terms (2001-2009) in the White House.
Bush’s appearance at the event – he’s listed on the invitation as a “special guest” – is his first helping fellow Republicans running in the 2022 midterm elections. Word of the fundraiser was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
But Bush’s move puts him at odds with former President Donald Trump , who has launched a full court press to defeat Cheney as she runs next year for a fourth two-year term representing the entire state of Wyoming in the House.
Stepping up his efforts, Trump backed one of the candidates hoping to defeat Cheney in next year’s election. The former president endorsed lawyer and former gubernatorial candidate Harriet Hageman, writing in a release put out by his political action committee that “Harriet is all in for America First.”
I’m sure Bush will help Cheney raise money, but don’t expect to see him on the campaign trail trying to get support for Cheney from voters, because I honestly don’t believe it would do her much good. Bush may be good for raising money at these elite events, but that’s about as far as it goes. He’s a relic of a bygone era – and I say that with all due respect – and hopefully she will be too after next year’s election.
