Liz Cheney: ‘Bond’ with Republicans who voted to impeach ‘forever’

Cheney received calls from “some” Republicans after her defeat, as well as President Joe Biden, she said.

Cheney said she had “a very good talk,” with Biden, “a talk about the importance of putting the country ahead of partisanship.”

Among the Republican callers? All of her colleagues who voted to impeach Trump, Cheney said.

Of those House Republicans, four lost primaries, two won their primaries, and four decided to leave Congress.

Along with Cheney, GOP Reps. Peter Meijer (Mich.), Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.) and Tom Rice (S.C.) lost their primaries. Reps. Dan Newhouse (Wash.) and David Valadao (Calif.) survived their first round of the election.

Reps. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), Anthony Gonzalez (Ohio), Fred Upton (Mich.) and John Katko (N.Y.) opted not to run for reelection. Kinzinger has served with Cheney on the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.
