(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – In a concession speech that sounded more like a call to arms against former President Donald J. Trump and an announcement that she is all but certain to run for the presidency in 2024, Unites States Congresswoman Liz Cheney, having just suffered one of the worst primary defeats by an incumbent in congressional history, cited President Abraham Lincoln as a role model for her future ambitions.
You can watch a video clip of Cheney making her remarks further down this post.
In part, citing the accomplishments of Lincoln, Cheney said:
“The great and original champion of our party, Abraham Lincoln, was defeated in elections for the Senate and the House before he won the most important election of all. Lincoln ultimately prevailed, he saved our Union, and he defined our obligation as Americans for all of history. Speaking at Gettysburg of the great task remaining before us, Lincoln said, ‘That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. That this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom and a government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from this earth.'”
