Only Democrats seem to love Liz Cheney, and one GOP hopeful is now challenging her seat…
Harriet Hageman will reportedly be challenging Liz Cheney in the upcoming 2022 primaries, as the now infamous Cheney continues to hemorrhage support within her own party.
One can only hope that RINO’s like Cheney become a thing of distant memory, or she does the correct thing and joins the Democratic Party.
President Trump issued this statement in response to Hageman’s endorsement by ranking members of the GOP:
President Donald J. Trump:
"Congratulations to Kevin McCarthy and Elise Stefanik on their strong and powerful endorsement of Harriet Hageman of Wyoming. Loser Liz Cheney is a RINO and warmonger who doesn’t deserve to serve in the House of Representatives. Harriet will… pic.twitter.com/eopASYa2hW

Liz Cheney stabbed every House Republican in the back the moment she decided to throw in with Pelosi on the fraudulent J6 witchhunt. She's a cancer on our Party & conservatives are united to defeat her. https://t.co/0BLJo00zMN

Kevin McCarthy told The Federalist:
“After spending time with Harriet, it is readily apparent she will always listen and prioritize the needs of her local communities and is focused on tackling our nation’s biggest problems,” McCarthy told The Federalist. “I look forward to serving with Harriet for years to come.”
The endorsement from the party’s top lawmaker in the lower chamber comes after a long string of Cheney attacks on her colleagues and even her own constituents, resulting in numerous censures and demotions.
I love that everyone in Wyoming knows the only chance Liz Cheney has to win her race is to have a horde of Democrats voting in the GOP primary to save her.
Absolutely perfect: the survival of the Cheney family political dynasty depends upon Democratic support, as it should be. https://t.co/YFyKhrKUOv

Wyoming you can do so much better than this D.C. beltway warmonger. Just wanted to make sure you all understand what she thinks of those who put her in office. #wy

Former President Donald Trump and his allies have been privately lobbying Wyoming lawmakers to change the state’s election laws as part of an effort to unseat Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.).
On Thursday, Trump endorsed Wyoming legislation that would prevent crossover voting in a primary election. Were the law to pass, Democrats, Republicans, or independents would no longer be able to switch party affiliation on the day of the state’s primary to vote for a candidate in another party.
