Two Democrat Representatives Urge Democrats to Vote for Unpopular Republican Colleague

Liz Cheney is not well liked. At least not by Republicans.

The war hawk Republican who has become a darling of the left because of her feud with President Trump is likely to lose her primary next week.

CNN even admitted as much when lamenting Trump’s success with endorsements this primary season. [RELATED: CNN Predicts Cheney Loss in Latest Meltdown]

Her response was to run ads featuring her dad, former Vice President Dick Cheney, warning about how dangerous Trump is for the republic.

Cheney must have forgotten about Robert E. Lee and the millions of people who have died around the world because of his decision.

But Cheney has taken it further in another desperate move,

Now, two House Democrats are urging Democrats in Wyoming to vote for Cheney. The Daily Wire reports. The same Cheney who denounced her gay sister to win election only a few years ago.

Reps. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) and Dean Phillips (D-MN) both appeared in online ads urging Democrats to vote for Cheney because she will save the republic.

Malinowski said, “Liz Cheney and I don’t agree on everything But we’re on the same side today, fighting for a country where we settle our differences by voting, not violence… Wyoming Democrats can put country over party too by registering to vote for her in the Republican primary.”

Phillips said, “You might be a little surprised that I’d be supporting Liz Cheney in her bid to continue representing Wyoming in the U.S. House, but principle must always come before politics, and nobody has shown more honor, integrity, and courage than she. So I ask you to please consider temporarily switching parties and voting for Liz Cheney on or by August 16th.”

We will have to wait until next week to see if the sad Hail Mary worked.
