Club for Growth, a fiscal conservative political action committee, who has been working to find a candidate challenging Rep. Liz Cheney to endorse, released a 30-second ad branding Cheney as a “Clinton Republican.”
With a slideshow of photos of Hillary Clinton, the ad starts, “Remember? She benefited from a famous political last name. She sided with Nancy Pelosi and attacked President Trump when he was in office. She supported impeachment and she continues to attack President Trump today.”
“Hillary Clinton? No, Liz Cheney,” the voice-over says as a photo of Clinton morphs into Cheney.
The Cheney camp did not hold back.
“Anyone who questions Liz Cheney’s conservative credentials is ignorant or lying,” a Cheney spokesperson told the Star-Tribune.
