Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-Wyo.) leadership PAC issued a new commercial targeting two election deniers running for high-profile statewide posts in Arizona on Friday, stating “we cannot give individuals power who will not honor elections.”
Her leadership PAC, Great Task PAC, will play the ad in the state on television, internet, and streaming platforms as part of a larger $500,000 media buy. NBC News broke the story first.
“I don’t know that I have ever voted for a Democrat. But if I lived in Arizona, I absolutely would. You have a candidate for governor, Kari Lake, you have a candidate for secretary of State, Mark Finchem, both of whom have said that they will only honor the results of an election if they agree with it,” Cheney says in the ad.
“And if you care about the survival of our Republic, we cannot give people power who will not honor elections.” The ad continues.
Cheney’s advertisement comes right on the heels of her decision to back Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) for reelection against Republican Tom Barrett.
Earlier this month an Arizona Family/HighGround Statewide Survey found Finchem barely leading the race by 42 percent support compared to Democrat Adrian Fontes with 41 percent.
