Cheney Fundraising Haul Shows Trouble Ahead for GOP

The following article, Cheney Fundraising Haul Shows Trouble Ahead for GOP, was first published on Flag And Cross.

There is a burning debate at the center of the Republican Party of late, as the group eyes a massive fork in the road just up ahead.

To the left is the party’s centrist old guard, hoping to tamp down the volatility of the last 9 years and make politics boring again.  But to the right, it’s red hats and making America great again…and loudly.

Cheney – the most high-profile of the 10 House Republicans who voted 15 months ago to impeach Trump for allegedly sparking the Jan. 6, 2021, attack at the U.S. Capitol – on Monday reported hauling in $2.94 million in the January-March first quarter as she runs for re-election this year.

The three-term conservative congresswoman who represents Wyoming’s at-large district also reported holding $6.8 million cash on hand in her campaign coffers as of the end of March. Cheney raised $1.5 million, $1.9 million, $1.7 million, and just over $2 million in the four fundraising quarters of 2021. Cheney’s new fundraising figures were first reported by Politico and confirmed by Fox News.

This puts Cheney way out in front of the pack in Wyoming.

Cheney released her fundraising figures a couple of days after Harriet Hageman, the leading Republican candidate challenging Cheney, announced that she brought in roughly over $1.3 million the past three months, according to figures shared first with Fox News. Hageman, who’s backed by Trump, also reported just over $1 million cash on hand.

Cheney has been badgered by Trump for months on end, with the former President’s complaints growing loudest after she became one of the token Republicans on Nancy’s Pelosi’s January 6th select committee.
