“Representative Liz Cheney, a Republican of Wyoming whose polling remains far behind her Trump-endorsed primary challenger as her House committee’s Jan. 6 hearings continue, is urging Democrats in her home state to switch parties to support her in the Aug. 16 primary,” the New York Times reported.
“In the last week, Wyoming Democrats have received mail from Ms. Cheney’s campaign with specific instructions on how to change their party affiliation to vote for her. Ms. Cheney’s campaign website now has a link to a form for changing parties,” it added.
NEW: Liz Cheney is asking Democrats in Wyoming to unite and vote for her in the Republican primary to defeat her Trump-endorsed opponent— her campaign is sending voters instructions on how to do so. Wyoming voters can change their party affiliation at the polls, per @thehill.

The move is a bold one, but it’s uncertain if it will work. If not, Cheney’s anti-Trump and anti-conservative rule will come to an end.
The change would mark yet another leader who voted against Trump being ousted from office as he seeks to support new candidates in hopes of another White House run.
