(ConservativeInsider.org) – Ever since House Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) voted with nine other House Republicans to impeach former President Donald Trump for the events of January 6, the GOP has pushed her to the sidelines of the party. However, her state decided to take its relationship, or lack thereof, with her a step further by voting to no longer recognize her as a member of the party.
On Saturday, November 13, the Wyoming Republican Party officially voted Cheney out of their party. NPR’s David Gura shared the vote count on Twitter:
By a vote of 31-29, "the Wyoming Republican Party will no longer recognize Liz Cheney as a member of the GOP." https://t.co/eci9ofnbja

Saturday’s resolution cited how Cheney has not offered any “quantifiable and or undisputed evidence” to back up her “questionable decision” to vote to impeach Trump and highlighted that as one of the reasons for the vote. While the vote does not change Cheney’s status as a lawmaker or strip her of power, it sent a clear message that Wyoming Conservatives no longer support her anti-Trump rhetoric and actions.
For months, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) counted on Cheney to represent a more liberal side to the GOP, but Republicans showed that’s simply not the case with this vote. Now, Cheney is practically partyless and Pelosi no longer has a conservative ally in the House. Unless Cheney has a secret trick up her sleeve, it seems her career may be coming to an end.
