Liz Cheney’s Chances Don’t Look Too Good In WY Primary

Liz Cheney looks set to lose her Congress seat to an America First, Trump-backed rival.
Polls show congresswoman trailing far behind conservative lawyer Harriet Hageman in Wyoming’s Republican primary.

Liz Cheney, also known as “Daddy’s girl,” will likely lose in her bid for re-election, giving a humiliating smack down to the Bush – Cheney family dynasty in DC- and supporters of President Donald J. Trump, who are the focus of Cheney’s hatred – will be very happy.

Widely praised by the left for her attacks on Trump and his supporters over the January 6 committee hearings, Liz Cheney looks set to lose her seat in Congress on Tuesday to a rival backed by former US president Donald Trump.

It could be the ultimate revenge on Cheney who has bragged about using the power of her position to harm Trump as a sort of rep of the ‘swamp’.

Opinion polls show Cheney trailing far behind conservative lawyer Harriet Hageman – who has echoed Trump’s feelings about the 2020 Presidential election in a Republican primary election to decide Wyoming’s lone member in the House of Representatives.

Victory for Hageman would continue a recent winning streak for Trump-backed candidates in congressional primaries and deal a blow to remnants of the Republican party establishment called RINOS, who continue to usurp the party for their leftist leanings.

Cheney is vice-chairwoman of the House panel investigating the deadly attack on the US Capitol on 6 January 2021. She has used the committee’s televised hearings to eviscerate Trump and members of her own party who remain loyal to him and his “big lie” that electoral fraudsters caused his defeat to Joe Biden in 2020.

The three-term congresswoman has also made the existential struggle for American democracy a central part of her re-election campaign in Wyoming.

In a closing video message, she said: “America cannot remain free if we abandon the truth. The lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen is insidious. It preys on those who love their country. It is a door Donald Trump opened to manipulate Americans to abandon their principles, to sacrifice their freedom, to justify violence, to ignore the rulings of our courts and the rule of law.”

But Cheney’s status as an unyielding leader of the anti-Trump resistance has alienated many Wyoming Republicans, many of whom accuse her of putting personal ambition in Washington ahead of her constituents at home,” The Gaurdian reported.

Cheney trailed Hageman 52% to 30% in a survey of likely primary voters from 7 to 11 July published by Wyoming’s Casper Star-Tribune. A University of Wyoming poll released last week put Hageman’s lead at 29 percentage points.

Supporters of Cheney, the 56-year-old daughter of former vice-president Dick Cheney, believe she still has a fighting chance if enough Democrats and independents cross over and vote for her, which is allowed in the state’s primary system.

But political strategist Terry Sullivan, who managed the Republican senator Marco Rubio’s 2016 presidential campaign, regards Cheney’s defeat on Tuesday as a “foregone conclusion” but sees her efforts as part of a larger battle.

“Liz Cheney isn’t fighting for re-election – she’s fighting for the direction of the Republican party,” he told the Reuters news agency, noting that some observers have discussed whether Cheney should mount a presidential campaign in 2024. “It’s more of a kind of a beginning, not an end.”
