“As chair of the GOP Conference, Congresswoman Cheney is on the front lines delivering the message of lower taxes, strong borders, and protecting our Constitutional rights,” said Latta. “With Nancy Pelosi leading the most liberal House of Representatives in our history, standing up for what we believe in has never been more important. 

“At a time when Democrats are pushing to implement policies like the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and a rollback of our Second Amendment rights, we welcome Liz to Ohio’s Fifth Congressional District to speak on how Republicans can win the debate in Ohio and across the country.”

Tickets are $25 per person. To purchase tickets, contact Sandy Barber at or 419.260.1796.

Cheney serves as Wyoming’s lone member in the U.S. House of Representatives. She was first elected in 2016 on a platform of restoring America’s strength and power in the world, and pursuing conservative solutions to create jobs, cut taxes and regulation, and expand America’s energy, mining, and agriculture industries.

Prior to her election to Congress, Cheney served at the State Department as a deputy assistant secretary of state and principal deputy assistant secretary of state for the Middle East. She also practiced law at White & Case and at the International Finance Corporation. A specialist in national security and foreign policy, she was also a Fox News analyst, and the co-author, along with former Vice President Dick Cheney, of Exceptional: Why The World Needs a Powerful America.
