Wyoming’s representative in Congress showed some true Wyoming grit last week. U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney put country over party, Constitution over cult of personality, and, most importantly, her responsibility to sworn duty over the controversial ideology that currently plagues Republican leadership.

Regardless of whether you agree with Liz’s politics, it is refreshing to see our representative in Washington stand firmly in support of the truth. As a core principle of journalism, our reporters seek and report the truth, and share a common interest in identifying facts to help inform our community on important issues.

Rep. Cheney carries on a long tradition of conservative values and constitutional rule of law. It’s a shame that Sens. Barrasso and Lummis haven’t publicly supported standing for what is true and what is right for our state and our country.

We hope they will reconsider their ways and help reform the Republican party for the future, which is the aim of Cheney’s firm stance.

I do not understand why she holds a grudge against Trump who is no longer in office. Does she know something the rest of us should know?
