Cheney tells Slotkin crowd to ‘walk away from politics as usual’

Read Time:4 Minute, 18 Second

East Lansing — Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney urged hundreds of mid-Michigan voters Tuesday to support her Democratic colleague, Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin, describing her as a candidate who would “put country above party.”

The stump speech in support of Slotkin at East Lansing High School’s gym marked the Wyoming Republican’s first time campaigning for a Democratic candidate.

“If we want to ensure this revival of our republic, we have to walk away from politics as usual,” Cheney said to group of about 500. “… If the people in our party are not doing the job they need to do, then we’re going to vote for the people in the other party.”

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., left, and Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich.

The country needs two strong parties and “substantive debates,” Cheney said.

“But we never get to … those debates if we elect people who will not respect the outcomes of elections,” Cheney said.

Cheney noted the first Michigan candidate she helped campaign for was former President Gerald Ford, a Republican, when her father, Dick Cheney, served as his chief of staff. “I think that Gerry Ford would be supporting Elissa Slotkin,” she said.
