Liz Cheney, a critic of former president Donald Trump, is facing criticism from the homefront. Wyoming governor Mark Gordon and others have stood in the background holding a low profile. Gordon, when asked if Cheney deserves removal from her position as House GOP conference chairwoman for opposing Donald Trump’s repeated lies regarding his losing the election, avoided answering the question directly. In an earlier meeting some months back, Gordon did say Cheney was a “key part of our delegation’s stature.”
Wyoming’s two Republican senators, John Barrasso and Cynthia Lummis, weren’t coming to her defense, either. Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York is emerging as a top candidate to replace Cheney.
