Rep. Liz Cheney (R., Wyo.) announced her candidacy for House Republican Conference chair on Wednesday morning.
In a letter sent to colleagues in the House of Representatives, Cheney championed revamped Republican messaging, a developed ground game, and a switch to the offensive in the face of attacks from Democrats.
Cheney is challenging Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R., Wash.) for the position. McMorris Rodgers won reelection last night, defeating Democrat Lisa Brown. The Wyoming Republican is former Vice President Dick Cheney’s eldest daughter and a former State Department official. She has held Wyoming’s at-large congressional seat since winning election in 2016.
