(PresidentialInsider.com)- In Liz Cheney’s concession speech after her humiliating primary defeat in Wyoming last Tuesday, she dropped an anvil-sized hint about whether she may be considering a run for president.
During her concession, the odious Liz compared herself to Abraham Lincoln who, despite losing a congressional race, went on to win the White House.

The following morning, Cheney appeared on NBC’s Today Show where she told Savannah Guthrie that she was thinking about running in 2024 and would be making a decision “in the coming months.”

Naturally, the American corporate news media is delighted at the prospect of a Cheney 2024 run, probably because the left-leaning media knows that if Cheney did become the Republican nominee, she would lose in a landslide.
The media only praises Republicans if they either surrender or lose elections to Democrats.
But Cheney’s popularity outside of corporate newsrooms is close to non-existent, especially among Republican voters.
Should she run in the Republican primaries, Cheney would be lucky to last past South Carolina, whether or not former President Trump is on the ballot.
In her concession speech, Cheney announced that now the real work begins.
Was this another hint about 2024?
Well, it doesn’t look like it. Instead, it looks like Liz was talking about her broader plan to target “Trump-supporting” Republicans.
Just hours after losing to Harriet Hageman, Cheney converted her “Cheney for Wyoming” campaign committee to a federal leadership PAC called “The Great Task.”
By using this PAC, Cheney can raise an unrestricted amount of money to make political donations to like-minded candidates, bankroll her travel expenses, or run a nonpartisan research operation. What she can’t do with the PAC money, however, is finance a political campaign of her own.
The “great task” in this instance seems to be working to defeat her fellow Republicans Liz has deemed “election deniers.”
While appearing on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, Cheney said she would be using her PAC to get “election deniers” like Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Missouri Senator Josh Hawley voted out of office.
In short, Cheney plans to become another Republican Turncoat organization like the Lincoln Project, or in her case, the “I’m Just Like Lincoln Project.”
