Mountain Journal founder Todd Wilkinson and I join forces for our “The Week That Is,” column where we discuss topical events relating to the nation’s capital city and the public land West.
Our conversation this time centers around Rep. Liz Cheney and how her reelection in Wyoming may tell us where our nation is headed politically.
TODD WILKINSON: You alluded to it in August, Tom, that following Labor Day you wanted to discuss the ongoing challenges facing US Rep. Liz Cheney coming from members of her own party. The Republican Primary is about a year away and it is likely to be a rhetorically turbulent time ahead.
TOM SADLER: Yes, I think Cheney and her political situation are shining a spotlight on a big problem for not only the Republican party but for our country.
