Liz Cheney makes waves as polling day approaches

Liz Cheney is making waves, appearing in central Michigan to back Democrat Elissa Slotkin

The countdown is on as polling day for the U.S. midterms quickly approaches. Almost 39 million Americans have already cast their votes in early voting.

Both the Democrats and the Republicans are pulling out all the stops to secure as many ballots as they can.

One individual making waves is outgoing congresswoman, Liz Cheney.

The Republican has ramped up her attacks on pro-Trump forces within her own party, all designed to prevent certain GOP leaders from securing power.

The Wyoming conservative and daughter of former Vice President, Dick Cheney, lost her seat after taking aim at Donald Trump and his role in the U.S. Capitol riot.

Appearing in central Michigan, Cheney has thrown her support behind Democrat Elissa Slotkin.

“If we want to ensure the survival of the republic, we have to walk away from politics as usual. We have to stand up and say we’re going to do what’s right for this country. We’re going to look beyond partisan politics,” Cheney said.

Slotkin is up against Tom Barrett – a GOP state Senator who says the legitimacy of the 2020 Presidential election remains “an unknowable thing.”

While Cheney and Slotkin don’t see eye-to-eye on numerous policy positions, Cheney says if Americans “want to ensure the survival of the republic, they have to walk away from politics as usual”.

Australia’s recent Australian ASEAN Summit highlights the potential gains from closer ASEAN ties, given its vast population of over 640 million. What collaborative opportunities lie ahead?

Professor Harcourt’s upcoming Airport Economist ASEAN series on Ticker promises deeper insights into ASEAN’s economic landscape, revealing its potential as a significant global player.
