The radical left-wing group announced its support for Cheney after former President George W. Bush gave the Wyoming congresswoman his blessing with a Dallas fundraiser.

Since escalating an inner-party feud to rid the GOP of President Donald Trump’s influence, and henceforth the influence of his Republican voters, Cheney has become a folk hero among the left, even drawing donations from Democrats in her bid for re-election, as highlighted by CBS’s “60 Minutes.”
In July, Cheney became one of two Republicans — the other being fellow Never Trump Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois — to serve on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s weaponized probe to investigate the January riot at the Capitol. Cheney joined the politicized Jan. 6 Committee as vice chair after Pelosi barred other Republicans from panel participation.
“Congress is obligated to conduct a full investigation of the most serious attack on our Capitol since 1814,” Cheney said as she took her next Democratic gig. She appeared to gloss over the 1954 raid by Puerto Rican nationalists who shot five congressmen, the 1983 Senate bombing by left-wing militants who were granted clemency by Democrats — not to mention the al-Qaeda terrorists who flew a plane into the Pentagon on 9/11, and the summer of rage last year.
Several months prior, the Wyoming congresswoman was overwhelmingly kicked from House leadership after she continued to antagonize Republican voters with repeated attacks on Trump and his supporters. In January, Cheney spearheaded the Republican effort to impeach the outgoing president over a rally. The futile crusade was only joined by nine GOP colleagues, several of whom had already announced their intention to support Trump’s conviction.
On Sunday, the incumbent congresswoman endorsed the transgender agenda in her interview with “60 Minutes.”
Cheney now faces a competitive primary challenge from a Trump-endorsed opponent in Wyoming, attorney Harriet Hageman, a former ally of the Cheney family.
The latest polling shows Cheney deep underwater in her home state after alienating its conservative base. Out of three surveys conducted since Cheney’s latest escalation in the election’s aftermath, Cheney has yet to land more than 25 percent support among likely primary voters.
