Republican Representative Liz Cheney, an outcast in her own party because of her vocal criticism of former President Donald Trump, on Thursday formally endorsed Democrat Elissa Slotkin, who is facing a tough House re-election fight in Michigan.

It was the first time Cheney has crossed party lines to actively campaign on behalf of a Democrat, though she had previously indicated support for Democrat Katie Hobbs in Arizona’s gubernatorial contest. Cheney was scheduled to join Slotkin at an event next week.
