President Joe Biden called Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WI) on Wednesday after losing his primary race on Tuesday.
Bloomberg News reports that Biden phoned Cheney on Wednesday, the day after his landslide election defeat to his main challenger Harriet Hageman, falling by 37 points.
Biden likely phoned Cheney before a Wednesday golf outing while vacationing in Delaware.
Details of the call have not been released, but Cheney and President Biden have a history of cordial communications since turning on former President Donald Trump.
Cheney faced wrath from Wyoming voters as she reached out and punched Biden as he arrived for his State of the Union address on Capitol Hill in April.

Biden and Cheney also share a common political enemy.
In her concession speech Tuesday in Jackson Hole, WY, Cheney made it clear that she would continue to fight former President Donald Trump.
“I have said since January 6 that I will do whatever it takes to ensure that Donald Trump is never near the Oval Office again,” she said, promising, “our work is far from done. “.
Biden has a habit of guarding Republicans who have turned on Trump, thanking them for standing with Democrats against the former president.
He repeatedly praised Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) after Romney voted to impeach Trump, describing him as “a nice guy.”
“The thing is, I think Mitt is a serious guy,” he said in February. “I think we can get things done.”
