Liz Cheney prefers a Democratic victory in the 2024 election.

Former Republican Representative Liz Cheney preferred Democrats gaining power in 2025 over her own party securing a majority in the 2024 elections. She characterized a Republican majority as a “threat” and warned of a looming existential crisis. Cheney, once the No. 3 leader in the House Republican Conference, was removed from her position and later lost her seat due to her opposition to former President Donald Trump following the Capitol insurrection on January 6.

In an interview with CBS, Cheney emphasized her commitment to the principles of the Republican Party but criticized its current direction, stating that the party had not chosen to uphold the Constitution. She believes that a Republican majority in January 2025 would pose a significant threat.

After diverging from her party’s stance and taking a stand against Trump, Cheney faced widespread alienation from fellow Republicans. Unlike House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who initially condemned Trump’s role in the Capitol riot but later aligned with him, Cheney maintained her criticisms and became the top Republican on the House committee investigating the January 6 attack. In 2022, she lost in the primary for her Wyoming seat.

Cheney has authored a book titled “Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning,” which provides insight into the groundwork laid by her party members, including House Speaker Mike Johnson, that led to the events of January 6. In an interview excerpt, Cheney referred to Johnson as a “collaborator” in Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results. She cautioned against Johnson returning to a leadership role in 2025, emphasizing the importance of avoiding a scenario where a Republican majority oversees an election that could be contested and sent to the House of Representatives.
