Why Democrats should be cheering for Liz Cheney

I never thought I would say this, but I am so glad Liz Cheney is keeping her job.

The Republican representative from Wyoming on Wednesday night survived an attempt to push her off of the House GOP’s leadership team after she was one of 10 Republicans in the chamber who voted to impeach now-former President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. She didn’t just keep her job — she won the secret ballot among her fellow House Republicans by a substantial margin, 145-61, at the end of a “tense” four-hour meeting. If one wants to be hopeful, the vote is a sign that maybe the party isn’t as far gone to extremism as it has seemed in recent weeks.
