The Wyoming GOP voted this past weekend to no longer formally recognize Representative Liz Cheney as a member of the Republican Party.
The move marks a second formal rebuke of the anti-Trump lawmaker and follows similar votes conducted by about one-third of the counties in Wyoming.
The vote passed by a 31-29 margin.
“The Wyoming Republican Party will no longer recognize Liz Cheney as a member of the GOP in its second formal rebuke for her criticism of former President Donald Trump,” the Associated Press reported.

‘Never Trumper’ Liz Cheney Gets The Boot
The party voted overwhelmingly to censure Cheney following her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump for his alleged role in inciting a riot at the Capitol back in January.
A spokesman for the Wyoming non-Republican said the idea that Cheney isn’t a “conservative Republican” is “laughable.”
Ms. Cheney has continued attacking the former President and anyone who dares support him, recently claiming Republicans “have made themselves willing hostages to this dangerous, irrational man.”
Cheney said the United States is “confronting a domestic threat that we have never faced before” in Trump, who she said is “attempting to unravel the foundations of our constitutional republic.”
She’s speaking about the man who is an overwhelming favorite to earn the GOP nomination for President should he choose to run again in 2024.

Cheney has received financial and moral support for her re-election bid in 2022 from former Speakers of the House Paul Ryan and John Boehner, along with fellow anti-Trump Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger.
Perhaps with Cheney no longer being considered a member of the GOP, she can start her own party with that group of broken Trump haters. An Island of Misfit Clowns, as it were.

The former President issued a scathing statement about Liz Cheney, formerly a member of the Wyoming GOP, last week.
“With an approval rating at 19% in Wyoming, people are wise to Liz Cheney,” said Trump. “She is happy to join the Democrats in the Unselect Committee (the next RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA Hoax), and spread more of their lies.”
President Donald J. Trump:
“With an approval rating at 19% in Wyoming, people are wise to Liz Cheney. She is a threat to Free and Fair elections, which are the cornerstone of our Country, because she caved so easily on the Crime of the Century. She is happy to join the… pic.twitter.com/tbCLqHRnm1

Stripping the title of Republican from Liz Cheney is largely symbolic. It won’t dissuade Democrats from using her, as they have all along, in pretending their committee investigating the Capitol riot is bipartisan in nature.
House Freedom Caucus Chair Andy Biggs (R-AZ) called on the Wyoming lawmaker to remove Cheney from the Republican Conference.
“Congresswoman Cheney and Congressman Kinzinger are two spies for the Democrats that we currently invite to the meetings, despite our inability to trust them,” said Biggs.
