From ABC News:
Outgoing GOP Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, through her newly-launched political action committee, on Friday launched a $500,000 ad campaign targeting Arizona GOP candidates Kari Lake and Mark Finchem.
The ad opens with a video of Cheney’s remarks at Arizona State University from earlier October when she spoke to a group gathered by the McCain Institute, noting that if she were an Arizona resident, she’d rather cast her vote for a Democrat than for the Arizona governor and secretary of state candidates who have repeatedly circulated conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential race.
Here’s the ad from Cheney’s PAC:
Right on cue, Kari Lake responded with a statement that captured the moment perfectly:

Ouch! And that’s how it’s done!
Kari, I know you are running for governor, but you are The Queen!
