Rep. Liz Cheney has endorsed the Democrat in a tight Michigan congressional race.
Cheney endorsed Rep. Elissa Slotkin, her first time officially betraying the Republican Party with a Democrat endorsement.
The nepotism baby politician will also be appearing at an event with Rep. Slotkin.
“I’m proud to endorse Elissa Slotkin,” Cheney said in a statement. “Serving together on the Armed Services Committee, I have come to know Elissa as a good and honorable public servant who works hard for the people she represents, wants what’s best for the country, and is in this for the right reasons.”
On November 1, Cheney will appear at an event in Lansing with Slotkin. The event is titled, “Evening for Patriotism and Bipartisanship.”
Slotkin is being challenged by Republican State Senator Thomas Barrett.
The Democrat congresswoman is in her second term and is in a race that the nonpartisan Cook Political Report has branded a “toss up,” The Hill notes.
Cheney lost her own primary and will not be up for re-election in November. She has said that she will not vote for Harriet Hageman, the Republican who defeated her.
The bitter loser also said at the time that she would do anything in her power to stop Trump from running, even promote Democrats — which she is now doing.
The outgoing congresswoman was asked by Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith if that included running for president — which she would not rule out.
“I certainly will do whatever it takes to make sure Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office,” Cheney said. She later added that, “it’s really important not to just immediately jump to the horse race and to think about what we need as a country.”
The RINO also promised to leave the party if Trump does become the nominee.
“I’m going to make sure Donald Trump, make sure he’s not the nominee,” Cheney said. “And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.”
