No one is happier about Liz Cheney’s loss in Wyoming than former President Donald Trump; Cheney was blown out by Trump-endorsed challenger Harriet Hageman who was up 32 points with 80% of the vote counted before midnight. But in her concession speech, Cheney escalated her feud with Trump.
“We must be very clear-eyed about the threat we face,” she said, repeating a previous pledge to “do whatever it takes to ensure that Donald Trump is never again anywhere near the Oval Office.”
Trump torched Cheney’s “tiny” concession speech on TRUTH Social.
“Liz Cheney’s uninspiring concession speech, in front of a ‘tiny’ crowd in the Great State of Wyoming, focused on her belief that the 2020 Presidential Election was not, despite massive and conclusive evidence to the contrary, Rigged & Stolen,” Trump wrote. “It was, and that’s not even counting the fact that many election changes, in numerous States, were not approved by State Legislatures, an absolute must. Liz Cheney is a fool who played right into the hands of those who want to destroy our Country!”
Trump also shared his thoughts on what should happen now that Liz has left the building.
“I assume that with the very big Liz Cheney loss, far bigger than had ever been anticipated, the January 6th Committee of political Hacks and Thugs will quickly begin the beautiful process of DISSOLUTION? This was a referendum on the never ending Witch Hunt. The people have spoken!”
Harriet Hageman will go on to face Lynnette GreyBull in November, who won the Democratic nomination Tuesday night.
