ORLANDO — House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney is not ruling out a potential presidential bid, The Post has learned.

“I’m not ruling anything in or out — I’ve been here a long time,” she told The Post when asked if she would ever consider running in the future. 

The Wyoming Republican — who has been a frequent target of former President Donald Trump — said there are a number of contenders she sees as having potential for the 2024 nomination, adding that she believes the lawmakers who led the efforts on challenging the election on Jan. 6 should be out of the running. 

“I think we have a huge number of interesting candidates, but I think that we’re going to be in a good position to be able to take the White House. I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view that’s disqualifying,” she said.  

“I think that adherence to the Constitution, adherence to your oath has got to be at the top of the list. So, I think, you know that certainly will be a factor that I’m looking at and I think a number of voters will be looking at as they decide about ’24.”

Cheney, the No. 3 Republican in the House and daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has been a vocal critic of Trump, often rebuking his style and splitting with him on a number of issues including foreign policy during his time in office. 

Trump has repeatedly called for Cheney’s ouster, with a group of House Republicans unsuccessfully attempting to force her out of leadership earlier this year.

She currently faces multiple primary challengers for her House seat, with Trump allies including his son Donald Trump Jr. and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) actively campaigning against her.
