House Republican leaders must decide how much to embrace President Donald Trump going into the 2020 election -- a dilemma that will fall most heavily to Representative Liz Cheney as she joins the party’s upper echelon.

The Wyoming congresswoman and daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney is poised to become the third-ranking House Republican in closed-door leadership elections to be held Wednesday. Her main task as House GOP conference chairwoman would be to craft a marketing strategy to help Republican lawmakers retake the House and propel Trump to a second term.
