Folks in Wyoming are not happy with Rep. Liz Cheney; many say she’s an embarrassment for serving on the Jan/ 6 Committee and betraying former President and fellow Republican Donald Trump.
“Are you planning to vote for Liz Cheney?” CNN’s Randi Kaye asked Wyoming voter Sharon Tuggle, who responded, “Hell no.”
“She’s done us dirty,” Tuggle said, confirming to Kaye that Cheney lost her vote because of her part on the January 6th committee. “Look at how she’s done Trump.”
“She is supposed to be supporting him,” added Tuggle. “She is a Republican, for crying out loud.”
“Personally, I think she’s had three too many,” another voter told Kaye, asked if Cheney should run for another term.
“It’s all a hoax. It’s all propaganda. It has nothing to do with anything. It’s a witch hunt,” said Wyoming voter Andrew Kahler.
“She says she’s defending what’s important to people here in Wyoming, upholding the rule of law and defending the constitution,” Kaye suggested to Wyoming voter Brett Kupec.
“If that was the rule of law, why doesn’t he have a defense team in that courtroom?” Kupec responded. “That ain’t a rule of law. That’s a kangaroo court. That’s not the Wyoming way.”
Another voter described Cheney as “an embarrassment.”
