Congresswoman Cheney was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2016 as Wyoming’s lone representative, running 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.
Currently, Cheney sits on the House Armed Services Committee and serves as the vice chair for the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol. From 2019 to 2021, Cheney served as the chair of the House Republican Conference, the third-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives.
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 is the co-author—along with her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney—of “Exceptional: Why the World Needs a Powerful America.” She is a member of the International Board of Advisors at the University of Wyoming. Liz and her husband Phil Perry have five children and live in Wilson, Wyoming.
