Republicans in Wyoming apparently don’t mess around with their political stances.

According to the Associated Press (AP), a little over 89 percent of the Republican Party in Wyoming voted in favor of censuring Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) after the congresswoman voted to impeach former President Donald Trump — while he was still president — for “his role” in the events at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. on January 6.

“Does the voice of the people matter and if it does, does it only matter at the ballot box?” Carbon County GOP Chairman Joey Correnti said.

Only eight of the 74 members of Wyoming’s GOP central committee voted against the censure of Cheney, or a little more than 89 percent.

Despite the move to censure her, Cheney still conveyed pride in serving “The Equality State.”

“Foremost among these is the defense of our Constitution and the freedoms it guarantees,” Cheney said, according to the AP. “My vote to impeach was compelled by the oath I swore to the Constitution.”

Cheney also told Fox News' Chris Wallace on Sunday that she refuses to step down.
