AEI President Defends Rep. Liz Cheney

American Enterprise Institute (AEI) President Robert Doar has a new piece in RealClearPolitics defending Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who has faced blowback from her fellow Republicans for voting to impeach former President Donald Trump:

The message for Republicans should be clear: Trump alone is not enough. If conservatives want to build a governing coalition that can win elections, the self-destructive attacks on Rep. Cheney need to stop. 

If they continue, the same people responsible for the Republicans losing the Senate this time around will ensure further progressive victories in the years ahead — and bear responsibility for the policies that will inevitably result.

Rep. Cheney's mother, Lynne Cheney, is a Senior Fellow at AEI.  Rep. Cheney's father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, has been a longtime board member of the think tank.
