Liz Cheney Obtains a New Position Focusing on ‘Strengthening Our Democracy’

Liz Cheney has secured a new position. According to a tweet from the university’s Center for Politics on Wednesday, Cheney entered the University of Virginia as a professor of practice. Cheney recently lost her congressional seat after being defeated in a primary. “With democracy under attack in this country and around the globe, Liz Cheney is a model of political courage and leadership,” said center director Larry Sabato. Cheney alienated herself from the Republican party following the Jan. 6 attack when she voted for impeachment. She became an outspoken critic of the dangers of Trump and Trumpism, culminating in her defeat in the Wyoming GOP primary last year by a far-right opponent. Cheney stated that, in her new position, she intends to “help to develop permanent solutions that not only maintain but also strengthen our democracy” in response to the numerous risks confronting our governance system. According to the Center for Politics, her contract is valid through the fall semester and may be renewed.
