Republican Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney said the Republican Party needs to move away from favoring lies and shouting to a policy-based party that clearly communicates those policies to voters, the Washington Post reports.
“The most important thing has to be the truth, and we have to be willing to speak the truth, and the truth is that the election wasn’t stolen. That doesn’t mean that there weren’t irregularities,” Cheney told a virtual meeting of the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service. “For us as a party, we have to be clear what we stand for; we have to be clear that we’re going to always tell our constituents and our voters that truth, that we owe them that.”
Cheney has been lambasted by members of the Trump wing of the GOP for being unsuitably unfaithful to Donald Trump because she voted to impeach Trump during his second impeachment trial in January.
“Too often, the incentives run towards who can make the biggest splash on Twitter, and I don’t think that’s healthy for the Party, for either one,” she said. “I don’t think it’s healthy for our government.”
