Embattled anti-Trumper Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is facing almost certain defeat in her primary challenge next week; Cheney faces Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman who is polling way ahead of the incumbent congresswoman.
According to Fox News, “Cheney was the most senior of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach the then-president on a charge of inciting the deadly Jan. 6, 2021, storming of the U.S. Capitol.”
Trump has been looking to unseat her ever since.
“167 and 6 on Endorsements this cycle,” Trump said on TRUTH Social. “This includes many who didn’t have a chance of getting elected. Most of the “Impeachers” are gone or going. Crazy Liz Cheney, who rarely leaves Virginia, will be shown the door by the great people of Wyoming next Tuesday. The Unselect Committee is a T.V. ratings “BOMB.” Only the Adam ‘Shifty’ Schitt family is watching!”
According to Wyoming Public Media, a new University of Wyoming poll shows Harriet Hageman leads Congresswoman Liz Cheney by nearly 30 points as primary election day looms.
“The people of Wyoming are fed up with Liz Cheney and want a member of Congress who actually does her job and represents the people who hired her,” Tim Murtaugh, a spokesperson for the Hageman campaign, told Insider in a statement. “Cheney should be standing up to the Biden administration, but instead she’s consumed with furthering her own personal war with President Trump and plotting her own national political future. But this race isn’t about Cheney — it should be about the people of Wyoming. That’s why Harriet Hageman will be the next congresswoman from Wyoming.”
Liz Cheney’s preening over her self-described work to “protect the Constitution” is landing with a loud thud in Wyoming. Our voters are smart enough to see what she’s up to, and protecting the Constitution isn’t it.https://t.co/RkvLQhNFnk
