WASHINGTON (AP) – Liz Cheney’s resounding election defeat marks the end of an era for the Republican Party.

Her loss to a Trump-backed challenger is the most high-profile political casualty yet as the GOP transforms into the party of Trump.

What’s next for the three-term congresswoman is uncertain.

The daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney is making it her mission to ensure Donald Trump never again returns to the Oval Office, calling him a danger to democracy.

She may run for the White House herself. But the Congress she leaves behind will be shaped in Trump’s image.
