Wyoming county GOP rejects effort to rescind Cheney’s party status

A Wyoming county Republican Party has rejected an effort to rescind Rep. Liz Cheney’s affiliation with the GOP.

The Teton County Republican Party voted down a largely symbolic resolution this week that would have revoked its recognition of Cheney as a member of the GOP, joining the Laramie County GOP, which rejected a similar measure earlier this month.

Several other county Republican parties throughout Wyoming have moved in recent months to rescind their recognition of Cheney, who joined nine other Republicans earlier this year in voting to impeach former President Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. 

The resolutions have no actual power to strip Cheney of her party affiliation, but act as a symbolic rejection of the Wyoming representative, who is already facing several primary challengers next year. Last week, Trump endorsed one of Cheney’s opponents, attorney Harriet Hageman.
