Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) continues to scuttle virtually all conservative connections in her reelection campaign for Wyoming’s single House seat. After being endorsed by Occupy Democrats, she is now fundraising with the Congressional Black Caucus.
The far-left Congressional Black Caucus Political Action Committee sent out a solicitation message on Wednesday titled as a “WARNING from Liz Cheney.” The email used Cheney’s never-Trump talking points and attacks on President Donald Trump in an effort to raise political donations.
The subject line of the solicitation read, “LISTEN to Liz Cheney.” The email leads readers to a petition webpage that asks for financial donations. It also says it is asking for 100,000 signatures so the group can show it “agrees” with Cheney in the effort to “permanently ban” President Trump from running for or holding office again.
The Federalist asked Cheney’s campaign for comments but could not confirm if she approved the solicitation. The campaign declined to make any comments.
No members of the Congressional Black Caucus are Republicans. Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), a black conservative serving his first term in the House, was denied membership in the caucus last year. In addition to rejecting all conservative and GOP blacks, the caucus has been known to express antisemitic sentiments.
Cheney has become a darling of the radical left and many Democrats as a result of her confrontational attitude toward Trump. Her campaign is funded by PACs and financiers that have also backed the Lincoln Project.
Through her nationwide leftist connections, Cheney has raised more than $10 million for her campaign. She faces a Republican primary challenge from attorney Harriet Hageman, who has been enthusiastically endorsed by President Trump.
An analysis of the contributions to the Cheney campaign indicate that she has taken in more money from beltway establishment sources inside and surrounding Washington, D.C., than in Wyoming.
President Trump carried Wyoming in 2020 by a larger margin than any other state, beating Joe Biden 70 percent to 27 percent.
