WHO: Former President George W. Bush and Representative Liz Cheney
WHAT: Fundraiser for Liz Cheney
WHERE: Dallas, TX
WHEN: October 18th, 2021
HOW: Former President George W. Bush will be hosting the fundraiser for the Wyoming representative.
Former President George W. Bush will be holding a fundraiser in October for Wyoming Republican, Representative Liz Cheney.
Bush will be hosting the event in Dallas on October 18th. The Wyoming representative is the daughter of his former vice president Dick Cheney. Other members of the former president’s administration are expected to be in attendance.
The event was first reported by Politico. Rep. Cheney is known for clashing with former President Donald Trump, who went as far as to urge other Republicans to defeat Cheney in the primaries next year. After the January 6th riot at the Capitol, their relationship took a downward turn. She blamed him for the violence and voted to impeach him.
President Bush, on the other hand, has remained a supporter of Cheney. “President Bush is impressed by Liz Cheney’s strength and vision, and he’s proud to support her,” said Bush spokesman Freddy Ford (CNBC). Ford added that Bush “has historically helped a few key candidates and friends each cycle.”
However, former President Donald Trump has since endorsed Republican Harriet Hageman, who is running against incumbent Cheney for her House seat (CNN). Other members of the Bush family and those close to them, including Jeb Bush, have continued to criticize Trump’s actions.
Recently, former President Bush said he was “appalled by the reckless behavior of some political leaders since the election.” He also called on Americans to confront and hold domestic violent extremists accountable. In response, Trump issued a statement saying Bush should not be “lecturing” Americans on these threats.
