Former Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming is targeting former President Donald Trump in an advertisement.

"Rather than accept his defeat, he mobilized a mob to come to Washington and march on the Capitol. Then he watched on television while the mob attacked law enforcement, invaded the Capitol, and hunted the vice president," Cheney claims in a voiceover on the ad from The Great Task. "Donald Trump has proven he is unfit for office. Donald Trump is a risk America can never take again," she says.

Cheney, a vocal Trump critic who lost her 2022 GOP primary contest to Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman, was one of the 10 House GOP lawmakers who voted to impeach Trump in the wake of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot. Cheney also went on to serve as one of the two Republicans on the House Select Committee that was supposed to investigate the Jan. 6 episode.

Trump is running for president again during the 2024 election cycle, but he is facing competition from several Republican figures have also announced White House bids, and others may announce in the future.

"The Great Task is a multi-candidate PAC sponsored by Congresswoman Liz Cheney that is focused on reverence for the rule of law, respect for our Constitution, and a recognition that all citizens have a responsibility to put their duty to the country above partisanship. The Great Task is designed to educate and mobilize Americans in a unified effort to ensure that our Republic endures," according to greattask.com.

Cheney has authored a book titled "Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning" which is slated to be released later this year.
