The most vocal critic of former president ドナルド・トランプ within the Republican Party is all but guaranteed to lose a primary challenge against Harriet Hageman. トランプ氏, along with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik, have endorsed Ms Hageman.
Ms Cheney currently holds the seat that her father, former vice president ディック・チェイニー, held for years. But when asked about whether she regretted criticising Mr Trump, which led to House Republicans voting to remove her from leadership, Ms Cheney said that she was proud of her stance.
“ I have no regrets,” she said according to CBS News. “I feel very proud about all the work that I’ve done together with people of Wyoming over the last six years and really understand and recognize there’s nothing more important than the defense of our Constitution. And so I’m going to continue to work and ensure that we’re doing that in a way that is nonpartisan.”
Ms Cheney was one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Mr Trump for his role in the January 6 暴動. それ以来, she has continued her criticism of the former president, including in her role as vice chairwoman of the House select committee investigating the raid at the US Capitol.
The congresswoman also said that she would continue her involvement in politics.
"上手, 見る, I think today, no matter what the outcome is, is certainly the beginning of a battle that is going to continue is going to go on," 彼女は言いました. “And as a country, we’re facing very challenging and difficult times. We’re facing a moment where our democracy really is under attack and under threat.”
