Elizabeth Lynne Cheney (CHAYN-ee; born July 28, 1966) is an American attorney and politician who has served as the U.S. Representative for Wyoming's at-large congressional district since 2017. She served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs in the George W. Bush administration and was the Chair of the House Republican Conference, the third-highest position in the House Republican leadership, from 2019 to 2021. Cheney is the elder daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney and Lynne Cheney. She held several positions in the U.S. State Department during the George W. Bush administration, notably as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs and Coordinator for Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiatives. She promoted regime change in Iran while chairing the Iran Syria Policy and Operations Group with Elliott Abrams. In 2009 Cheney and Bill Kristol founded Keep America Safe, a nonprofit organization concerned with national security issues that advocated the positions of the former Bush administration. She was a candidate for the 2014 election to the U.S. Senate in Wyoming, challenging three-term incumbent Mike Enzi, before withdrawing from the race. In the House of Representatives, she holds the seat her father held for a decade, representing Wyoming from 1979 to 1989.Regarded as a leading ideological conservative in the Bush–Cheney-era tradition and a representative of the Republican establishment, Cheney is a neoconservative, known for her focus on national security, her support for the U.S. military, a pro-business stance, foreign policy views, and for being fiscally and socially conservative. Cheney is considered one of the leaders of the neoconservative wing of the Republican Party and was critical of the foreign policy of the Donald Trump administration while simultaneously voting steadfastly in support of its overall agenda.She orchestrated the unprecedented op-ed by all living U.S. defense secretaries calling on the military not to interfere in the peaceful transfer of power in 2021. She later supported the second impeachment of Donald Trump for his role in the 2021 storming of the U.S. Capitol.
