"I certainly hope to play a role in helping to ensure that the country has ... a new, fully conservative party," she told USA TODAY in an interview Monday about her new book, "Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning," out Tuesday. "And so whether that means restoring the current Republican Party, which ... looks like a very difficult if not impossible task, or setting up a new party, I do hope to be involved and engaged in that."
She said she also hasn't ruled out joining a bipartisan ticket in next year's election, like the one proposed by a group called No Labels, an independent campaign that promises to put both a Republican and a Democrat on the ballot.
Her goal now is to shame Republican officeholders to stop being what she calls “enablers” and “collaborationists” of Trump, unwilling to say in public the criticism some deliver in private. She quotes Tennessee Rep. Mark Green, when members were being urged to sign on to unfounded objections to the electoral vote count in 2021, as “sheepishly” saying, “The things we do for the Orange Jesus.’”
pb says, the more the merrier.
Liz's interesting. She's hyperSwampGOP. That someone so enmeshed with the dysfunction and corruption of the Swamp would contemplate a third-party candidacy says tons about the disintegration of the ol Swamp ways. And, I can't see a Lizzie run happnin. But, for pb, it'd be fun.
