Unlike the vast majority of Republican elected officials, Liz Cheney is not afraid of Trump. The former president has a lot to lose if he wades into a House of Representatives area code in Wyoming.
If Cheney wins the primaries against the Trump-backed opponent, it will destroy the myth that Trump is some kind of king and queen in the Republican Party that cannot be exceeded.
So far, Trump has chatted a big game but hasn't spent his super PAC on funding Republican candidates.
If Trump follows his usual pattern, he will give an endorsement, make a campaign appearance and that is all.
I wouldn't bet Liz Cheney beat the Trump-backed main challenger.
