After losing the primary, Cheney had a good chat with Biden

After losing her primary to a Trump-endorsed Republican candidate, Rep. Liz Cheney said she talk very well with President Joe Biden.

Cheney lost her nomination in Wyoming's only House seat to former President Donald Trump's pick Harriet Hageman last week, as she suffered a landslide defeat in the Republican primary.

“I did hear from President Biden,” Cheney told ABC News. “We had a very good talk, a talk about the importance of putting the country ahead of partisanship. And I’ve heard from a number of other people, as you can imagine, over the course of the last several days.”

The three-term conservative congresswoman became the fourth House Republican to lose in the primaries after voting to impeach Trump last year, following Rep. Tom Rice, Rep. Peter Meijer, and Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler. Only two out of the ten pro-impeachment House GOPs survived their primary challenges.

During an interview aired on Aug. 21, Cheney said, "We made the decisions that we did and faced the consequences for those decisions.".
