Cheney Lagging Way Behind Opponent
According to recent polls, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney is down by double digits in her primary against Harriet Hageman, a Republican activist backed by Donald Trump.
Cheney, vocal critic of Trump, is the only Republican on the January 6 committee investigating the events at the Capitol last January. Cheney is highly unpopular among her constituents.
According to the Hill, “Cheney, the panel’s vice chair who broke with her party to help lead the committee, is fighting for her political life as Republicans in Wyoming and Washington seethe over her criticism of former President Donald Trump and other Republicans over the insurrection. She will face off in an August primary against attorney Harriet Hageman, who is backed by Trump and his allies.”
Cheney Could Lose Her Seat in the Primary
Trump endorsed Hageman, saying, “Unlike RINO Liz Cheney, Harriet is all in for America First. Harriet has my Complete and Total Endorsement in replacing the Democrats’ number one provider of sound bites, Liz Cheney. Make America Great Again!”
The contest is already shaping up to be one of the most controversial in recent memory.
