Two-term Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., has quickly become one of the Republican Party’s rising stars, with some viewing her as a potential House Speaker, Politico reports.

“On one occasion, I told her, ‘You know, if that Senate seat is open, you have to go for it,’” Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., told Politico. “She said, ‘I don't know, I really like the House.’ I said, ‘Are you kidding?’”

“I don't want her to go to the Senate, but look, she could be an extraordinary high-profile leader for the Republican Party over the next generation,” he added.

“I’ve told many people here, I think she would be a natural to be the speaker in the House. I mean that,” said Alabama GOP Rep. Bradley Byrne.

“She’s very talented, very even tempered, and she knows how to talk to all wings of the party,” said Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky., who also served in the House with Cheney’s father, former Vice President Dick Cheney. "And she’s conservative."

Cheney may be conservative, but she doesn’t always agree with Republican leaders. She publicly criticized President Donald Trump’s decision to remove U.S. troops from Syria in December, telling CBS: “We should not pull those forces out. We ought to make sure that we continue that mission until ISIS is defeated. It's very important that the president reverse this decision in my view because you've got to remember we're there because we were attacked.”
