Former Trump official Perry Pendley is considering primarying Liz Cheney.
Perry Pendley, who served as acting director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) during the Trump administration, is expected on Thursday evening to give a speech in his home state of Wyoming where he’ll strongly hint at launching a Republican primary challenge against embattled Rep. Liz Cheney.
Cheney, the third-ranking lawmaker in House GOP leadership, was the most high-profile of the 10 House Republicans who voted in January to impeach then-President Donald Trump. Cheney immediately came under verbal attack by Trump and his allies and remains at the top of his list of Republican enemies he hopes to topple in the 2022 midterms.
“Wyoming needs a congressional delegation united in the fight for economic survival. It is a fight that must be waged with 100% of our energies, for 100% of the time, in 100% of the arenas available,” Pendley will say, according to an excerpt of his remarks obtained by Fox News.
“We have no time for distractions whether they are with forums or issues of marginal and little real interest to Wyoming. We have no time for warring against one another, against fellow Republicans, or against a former president who served Wyoming well,” Pendley will emphasize.
Liz Cheney already has multiple primary challengers.
Trump warned about the vote being split because of the vast amount of primary challengers.
He said he would be making an endorsement in the race soon back on April 14th.
