Carman: Here’s to Liz Cheney, and here’s to the progressive who can beat her in 2024 — whoever that may be

More than three weeks before Liz Cheney’s shellacking in the Wyoming primary, it was clear across our neighboring state to the north that her campaign was kaput. As we drove through Saratoga, Rock Springs, Jackson, Alta and beyond in late July, I counted three “Cheney for Wyoming” signs and dozens of “Hageman for Congress” billboards […]

Nicolais: Supporting Brittany Pettersen for Congress is about more than just politics as usual for me

For the first time in almost a decade, since I ran for state Senate, I will open my home to a political event this Saturday evening.

Littwin: Liz Cheney, expected to lose her House seat, displays a rare profile in political courage

If I’m honest — and I try to be even when not under oath — I was afraid that the January 6 committee would blow its big prime-time opportunity Thursday night. I thought the members may have overpromised — new revelations, never-before-seen video of the assault on the Capitol, damning testimony from inside the Trump […]

Ken Buck voted against ousting Liz Cheney from Republican leadership; Lauren Boebert supported removing her

Colorado’s Republican U.S. House delegation was split Wednesday morning as their caucus voted to remove Liz Cheney from her leadership position after she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump and repeatedly lambasted him for falsely claiming the 2020 election was fraudulent.  U.S. Rep. Ken Buck, a Windsor Republican, told reporters after the voice vote […]

Nicolais: Liz Cheney’s last full measure of devotion is at the altar of our democracy

The sole U.S. Representative from Colorado’s neighbor to the north has been the center of attention for political wonks over the past week. Rep. Liz Cheney’s refusal to kowtow to former President Donald Trump and his ludicrous claims of election fraud again threatens her political career. The scion of a first family in Wyoming, and […]
