Surprising Name “Thinking About” Running for President
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1914: U.S. President Woodrow Wilson issues “Proclamation of Neutrality.”
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) was handed a defeat in her state’s primary election on Tuesday, but that didn’t deter her from potentially running for president.
“That’s a decision that I’m going to make in the coming months, and I’m not going to make any announcements here this morning. But it is something that I am thinking about, and I’ll make a decision in the coming months,” Cheney told NBC on Wednesday.
Cheney’s remark came hours after major outlets projected that Cheney lost to Harriet Hageman, her challenger endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
The New York Times reported that as of 7 a.m. on Wednesday, Hageman was in the lead with 66.3% to Cheney’s 28.9%.
Jeremy Adler, a spokesperson for Cheney, said she plans to launch an organization “to educate the American people about the ongoing threat to our Republic, and to mobilize a unified effort to oppose any Donald Trump campaign for president.”
