RINO of all RINOs Liz Cheney set a personal fundraising record for the first quarter of 2022, according to Politico Playbook.
President Trump has vowed to unseat Liz Cheney after she voted in favor of impeachment.
The DC swamp is backing Cheney – McConnell, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are all working to make sure Cheney stays in her seat.
Politico Playbook reported:
Rep. LIZ CHENEY has set another personal fundraising record.
The Wyoming Republican is fighting off a serious challenge from HARRIET HAGEMAN, a Cheyenne attorney, and the Aug. 16 primary has turned into the most important and closely watched contest between the MAGA and traditional wings of the GOP.
DONALD TRUMP, KEVIN MCCARTHY, PETER THIEL and dozens of House Republicans, who kicked Cheney out of House GOP leadership, are backing Hageman. GEORGE W. BUSH, MITCH MCCONNELL, MITT ROMNEY and PAUL RYAN are backing Cheney.
Normally, being booted out of leadership might put a crimp in a member’s fundraising. But this quarter, Cheney actually outraised Rep. ELISE STEFANIK of New York, who replaced her as House GOP Conference chair. Stefanik reported Thursday that she raised “over $2 million” in the first fundraising quarter of 2022.
Now, the Cheney camp is prepared to announce that it raised an eye-popping $2.94 million in Q1 of 2022, bringing her total haul for the cycle to more than $10 million. With four months left to go in the primary campaign, Cheney has $6.8 million on hand.
Cheney is also the vice chair of Pelosi’s unconstitutional January 6 panel.
Cheney on Sunday told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “It is absolutely clear that what President Trump was doing … was unlawful,” in response to a report claiming the January 6 Panel has evidence to make a criminal referral for Trump to DOJ.
The panel previously said that Trump and members of his campaign “engaged in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States.”
