Today, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said Wednesday she is considering a run for president in 2024 and will make a decision in the coming months. She shared her thinking during a television interview the morning after badly losing in a Republican primary to a candidate backed by former president Donald Trump. Early Wednesday, Cheney, who serves as vice chairwoman of the House Jan. 6 committee, established a leadership PAC called “The Great Task,” a signal that her role in politics is hardly over.

In Georgia, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani appeared before a special grand jury as part of a criminal probe into efforts to overturn the 2020 election. He is the highest-profile member of Trump’s inner circle to appear as investigations involving Trump continue to unfold on multiple fronts.
