U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney won a third term in the U.S. House, defeating Democrat Lynnette Grey Bull and two other candidates Tuesday in her bid for re-election.
The Associated Press called the election in Cheney’s favor shortly before 9 p.m. Mountain Time.
Cheney was first elected to Congress in 2016 on a platform of restoring America’s strength and power in the world, and pursuing conservative solutions to create jobs.
Before her election to Congress, she served at the State Department as a deputy assistant secretary of state and principal deputy assistant secretary of state for the Middle East. She also practiced law and was a Fox News analyst. She’s a member of the International Board of Advisors at the University of Wyoming.
She is reportedly the third most powerful Republican in Congress, and many analysts predict she will vie for a House leadership post in the near future.
