Congresswoman Liz Cheney serves as Wyoming’s lone member of Congress in the U.S. House of Representatives. She was first elected in 2016 on a platform of restoring America’s strength and power in the world, and pursuing conservative solutions to create jobs, cut taxes and regulation, and expand America’s energy, mining and agriculture industries.


From 2019 to 2021, Cheney served as the Chair of the House Republican Conference, the third-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives. She sits on the House Armed Services Committee and also serves as the Vice Chair for the January 6th Committee. 

Previously, Congresswoman Cheney served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, Coordinator for Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiatives, and chair of the Iran Syria Policy and Operations Group. She also practiced law at White & Case and at the International Finance Corporation. A specialist in national security and foreign policy, she was also a Fox News analyst, and is the co-author – along with her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney – of Exceptional: Why The World Needs a Powerful America.

In August 2022, Congresswoman Cheney lost renomination in Wyoming’s Republican primary to Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman, and her term will expire in January 2023.
