Romney: Cheney will eventually lose if she seeks 2024 Republican nomination

If Liz Cheney seeks the GOPs presidential nomination in 2024, the outgoing congresswoman’s bid will result in another defeat, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) predicts.

Driving the news headlines: After losing her primary this month to a Trump-backed challenger, Cheney has indicated she’ll begin laying the groundwork for a potential run for the White House alternatively for anti-Trump Republicans.

What hes saying: “I dont know if she would like to do that. She’d not end up being the nominee if she were to perform. I cant suppose would occur,” Romney told attendees at a Chamber of Commerce event in Utah on Thursday, per Deseret News.

  • Romney backed Cheney in her primary, but acknowledged her chances were slim in enough time of Trump, in accordance with Business Insider.

State of play: Cheney is a vehement critic of Trump, and that is already cost her another term in Congress.

  • Along with supporting his impeachment, she’s worked closely with Democrats on the investigation into his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
  • “I really believe that Donald Trump continues to pose an extremely grave threat and risk to your republic,” Cheney said on the “Today” show. “And I believe that defeating him will probably need a broad and united front of Republicans, Democrats and Independents, and thats what I plan to become a part of.”

Yes, but: Keeping Trump from winning the nomination if he ultimately runs again may be impossible, Romney said.

  • “My party has changed a good deal during the last decade. It’ll change again on the next 10 years. I cant let you know how, but I believe well have significantly more voices than one at some time,” Romney said, Deseret News reports.
  • “But at this time one voice, and thats President Trumps voice, may be the loudest and the strongest and bucking him is something people can do at their peril.”
