Representative Liz Cheney on Tuesday campaigned against Senate candidate JD Vance in Ohio, her latest public rejection of a fellow Republican in the stretch run of the midterm elections in which the Senate and House majorities are at stake.

Last week, Cheney had announced her endorsement of Michigan Democratic Representative Elissa Slotkin for re-election, and earlier said if she lived in Arizona, she would vote for the Democratic candidates for governor and secretary of state.
