On Tuesday, the voters of Wyoming decided to finally throw out the notorious anti-Trump congresswoman Liz Cheney’s fate in favor of Republican state legislator Harriet Hageman, who has 45th President Donald Trump’s endorsement.
“I strongly endorse Republican House of Representatives Candidate Harriet Hageman from Wyoming who is running against warmonger and disloyal Republican, Liz Cheney,” said Trump during his Hageman endorsement. “Harriet is a fourth-generation daughter of Wyoming, a very successful attorney, and has the support and respect of a truly great U.S. Senator, Wyoming’s own Cynthia Lummis.”
“Like many Wyomingites, I supported Liz Cheney when she ran for Congress,” Hageman claimed during a recent campaign event. “But then she betrayed Wyoming, she betrayed this country, and she betrayed me.”
Cheney now joins many of her anti-Trump colleagues, who have also been defeated by pro-Trump primary opponents.
Hageman clobbered Cheney by a significant margin.
