Disgraced outgoing Rep. Liz Cheney has endorsed another Democrat ahead of Tuesday’s midterm election.
On Saturday, Rep. Cheney endorsed Democratic Rep. Abigail Spanberger — the third Democrat she has endorsed ahead of the election.
Spanberger is in a tight race against Trump-endorsed Republican Yesli Vega.
“I’m honored to endorse Abigail Spanberger. I have worked closely with her in Congress, and I know that she is dedicated to working across the aisle to find solutions. We don’t agree on every policy, but I am absolutely certain that Abigail is dedicated to serving this country and her constituents and defending our Constitution,” Cheney said in a statement.
Vega has questioned the results of the 2020 election and has campaigned on an America First platform.
“Abigail’s opponent is promoting conspiracy theories, denying election outcomes she disagrees with, and defending the indefensible,” Cheney continued. “We need our elected leaders to be honest, serious, and responsible, which is why I would urge voters in Virginia’s 7th District to support Abigail Spanberger.”
Virginia’s 7th District House race originally leaned Democrat, but Republicans have been making big gains in the race. The non-partisan Cook Political Report now has the race listed as a “toss up.”
Cheney has also campaigned for Democrat Michigan Rep. Elissa Slotkin saying, “While Elissa and I have our policy disagreements, at a time when our nation is facing threats at home and abroad, we need serious, responsible, substantive members like Elissa in Congress.”
Vega is a former military wife, former police officer, and mother.
Vega’s website states, “As your voice and representative to Washington, Yesli looks forward to fulfilling Congress’s responsibility of being a check and balance on the woefully inept Biden administration. She will be a strong advocate for the timeless American ideals of freedom, limited government, and restoration of the rule of law.”
Cheney lost her own primary and will not be up for re-election in November. The bitter loser has said that she will not vote for Harriet Hageman, the Republican who defeated her.
Despite not being able to keep her seat, the relentless narcissist has not ruled out running for president in 2024.
“I certainly will do whatever it takes to make sure Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office,” Cheney said at a recent event. She later added that, “it’s really important not to just immediately jump to the horse race and to think about what we need as a country.”
