(RepublicanDaily.org) – Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has not had a particularly easy time since she decided to vote to impeach former President Donald Trump earlier this year. Many of her GOP colleagues saw her vote as a slight on the core of the party. She lost her position as House GOP Conference chair following the debacle, and the Wyoming GOP also censured her. Now, the Republican party in the state has gone a step further.
On Saturday, November 13, the Wyoming Republican Party voted to no longer recognize Rep. Cheney as an official party member. According to the resolution, party members decided because Cheney voted to impeach Trump despite the lack of evidence of criminal wrongdoing. GOP organizations in counties across Wyoming have also voted to stop recognizing Cheney.

If the fates of other Trump opponents within the GOP are anything to go by, things might get worse for Cheney before they get better. This week, Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI), one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump, indicated he was unsure if he would run for his seat in 2022. If he does step away from politics, he would be the third of those said lawmakers to do so, following announcements from Reps. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH).
Might Liz Cheney be headed down the same path?
