Rep. Liz Cheney Endorses Slotkin’s Re-election Bid, Calling Her a “Good and Honorable Public Servant”
Slotkin to welcome Cheney to Michigan’s 7th district in lead-up to election
LANSING, Mich.— U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin will host U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) for an “Evening for Patriotism and Bipartisanship” on November 1st in Michigan. Cheney is supporting Slotkin in her race for re-election.
The two Congresswomen serve together on the House Armed Services Committee and both have backgrounds in national security, with Cheney having previously served in the State Department. Cheney is the former Chair of the House Republican Conference and currently serves as Vice Chair of the House Select Committee on the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol.
“I’m proud to endorse Elissa Slotkin. 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,” said Cheney. “While Elissa and I have our policy disagreements, at a time when our nation is facing threats at home and abroad, we need serious, responsible, substantive members like Elissa in Congress. I encourage all voters in the 7th district – Republicans, Democrats, and Independents – to support her in this election.”
“At a moment when the very heart of our democracy is being challenged, Rep. Cheney’s voice has been critical,” said Slotkin. “I’m grateful for her support in this race and I’m proud of the work we’ve done together to strengthen our national security and America’s role in the world. We all know that our country is going through a difficult moment right now. But throughout our history, two things have helped us weather times like these: engaged citizens and principled leaders, from both sides of the aisle. Rep. Cheney has shown tremendous leadership over the last two years, and while we certainly don’t agree on every issue, I look forward to welcoming her to Michigan’s 7th district next week to discuss the points where all Americans can leave politics aside and put our country above all else.”
