Liz Cheney Bags Another Endorsement Ahead of Her Primary and It’s Embarrassing

Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming is on a path to lose her GOP primary on Tuesday, and by a lot.

But she’s still picking up famous endorsements.

Last week, she made news with noted Hollywood liberal actor Kevin Kostner was seen sporting a t-shirt in the set of his popular “Yellowstone” series that said, “I’m For Liz Cheney.”

Now, it appears as though the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney has another endorsement: From disgraced former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.).

As reported by BizPac Review:

Former Democrat senator Al Franken who was run out of Congress at the height of the #MeToo hysteria over allegations of inappropriate sexual overtures to multiple women went on record as being a big supporter of the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, taking to Twitter to stump for her in the primary where she is expected to be shellacked by her Trump-endorsed opponent.

“I’ve decided to endorse @RepLizCheney for the Republican nomination for the House seat In Wyoming it’s my first time endorsing in a GOP primary. But I think Al Franken’s support will carry a lot of weight with WY Republicans,” Franken wrote.

Needless to say, Franken’s endorsement drew a lot of heat and ridicule.

“Kinda says it all,” tweeted Texas GOP Senator Ted Cruz.

“Maybe she can hit the road with you on your comedy tour when she gets voted out, because she sure as hell isn’t getting re-elected,” wrote Florida congressional candidate Lavern Spicer.

“At least Al Franken hasn’t lost his comedic skills,” another Twitter user wrote.

According to Breitbart News, there are at least five occasions in recent years where Cheney has crossed over to help support Democrats and, especially, anti-Donald Trump initiatives:

Gun Control: The Wyoming Republican voted for the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act which “is a package of different gun control proposals stitched together with school safety and mental health provisions,” according to an assessment by the Heritage Foundation. She voted for the 80-page bill 72 hours after it was revealed. Heritage added: “Expecting members to understand the impacts of an 80-page bill in just 72 hours is irresponsible, not to mention the fact that it prevents the American people from weighing in on the package and having their voices heard.”

China Computer Chips Bill: She also voted for the CHIPS Act, which some have said will actually make U.S. chipmakers less competitive with China. The measure contains $250 billion that blends “corporate welfare with industrial policy,” Heritage stated, according to Breitbart News. “The bill includes $52 billion in financial incentives to the highly profitable semiconductor industry, $80 billion in increased funding to universities through the National Science Foundation (NSF), $10 billion for centrally planned regional technology hubs,’ and nearly $50 billion in funding for research at the Department of Energy.”

$1.5 Trillion Infrastructure Bill: Cheney backed the Omnibus & Supplemental Package, which spends $1.5 trillion on President Joe Biden’s and Democrats’ radical policy initiatives “with an attached $13.6 billion for aid to Ukraine,” the Heritage Foundation reported. “It fails to reverse the COVID-19 emergency or the Biden administration’s vaccine mandates, as conservative leaders have called for, and doubles down on the Green New Deal style government subsidies for green energy and climate policies,” the assessment adds.



Creation of Jan. 6 Committee: Not only did Cheney vote to create the committee, but she bucked the majority of her own party to take a co-chairmanship of it. “Since January 6th, the courage of my party’s leaders has faded. But the threat to our Republic has not. On an almost daily basis, Donald Trump repeats the same statements that provoked violence before. His attacks on our Constitution are accelerating. Our responsibility is to confront these threats, not appease and deflect,” she said as she accepted the position.

Impeaching Trump: Cheney notably voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6 riot, which she blamed on him. That led Trump to support a primary challenger to Cheney, Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman, who has a massive double-digit lead heading into Tuesday’s primary.
