Now that she is running for a Senate seat, Liz Cheney's contract with Fox News has been terminated, Mediaite reported on Tuesday.

Cheney had been a paid pundit at the network, and even guest hosted some of its shows from time to time. On Tuesday, though, she announced that she was running for a seat in Wyoming, meaning that she could no longer continue in her contributor role.

The move is not a new one; most famously, Fox News let go of Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum in 2011, when it became clear the two men were running for president.
