Republican Liz Cheney lost the Wyoming primary

Republican Liz Cheney lost the Wyoming primary

After initially supporting him, Cheney has become increasingly critical of Trump in recent years. He voted to endorse Joe Biden’s electoral victory in the 2020 election, voted to impeach Trump, and spoke negatively about Trump’s role in the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol. . This is not appreciated within the Republican Party, which is mainly pro-Trump. Chenny is seen as a traitor.

Hackman received support from Trump. He has often emphasized his claim that the 2020 elections were rigged. Hageman will face a Democratic candidate in November’s midterm elections, but he is unlikely to win in predominantly Republican Wyoming.

Cheney comes from a Republican background: former President George W. She is the daughter of Dick Cheney, who was Vice President under Bush. He has been in the House of Representatives since 2017. His supporters in the party believe he will run for president in 2024, but he has yet to comment on his plans. After the primary election results were announced, Cheney said in a speech that he would “do everything in my power” to prevent Trump from returning to the White House.
