Liz Cheney Releases New Ad Bashing Trump Despite Being Unpopular

This week, a new TV ad warning voters about the danger of nominating Donald Trump in 2024 began running in New Hampshire, NBC News reported.

The ad is the first launched by the Great Task PAC, founded by former Republican Rep. Liz Cheney.

The 60-second ad, which is narrated by Cheney, calls a possible second Trump presidency a “risk America can never take again.” Over footage from the January 6 Capitol riot, Cheney describes Trump as the only US president to refuse “to guarantee the peaceful transfer of power,” which she calls the greatest “dereliction of duty by any president.”

The ad is airing to coincide with Trump’s CNN town hall on March 10 at St. Anselm College.

Cheney, who was soundly defeated in the Wyoming midterm primary last August, hinted at her plans during her concession speech when she vowed to continue her fight to ensure that Donald Trump “is never again near the Oval Office.”

While Cheney has never ruled out the possibility of running for president in 2024, she has so far made no public moves to do so. Instead, she has focused her attention on her PAC to stop Trump from winning the Republican nomination.

Last month, Cheney announced that she is writing a memoir titled “Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning,” which is set for publication in November 2023. Recently, the disgraced former congresswoman was hired by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics where she will be a professor of practice.

But it won’t just be Cheney’s new ad that will dog Trump during his CNN town hall.

On Tuesday, a jury found Trump liable for sexual abuse and defamation of E. Jean Carroll in her civil case against the former president, the Associated Press reported.

In the split verdict, the jury found that Carroll failed to prove that Trump raped her sometime in the 1990s. But it did find Trump liable for sexually abusing and defaming her for which Trump is ordered to pay Carroll $5 million.
