Chaney; “I really do think it’s one that will be a moment where the people of Wyoming can demonstrate to the country our commitment to the Constitution.”
“I believe the race will be very important in terms of the future of the party and the future of our republic.”
Cheney, mentioned issues she believes are important for voters in Wyoming, like “oil and gas leasing on public lands,” noting she barely had any policy-related difference with the former president.
