Liz Cheney, the so-called “Republican,” has had tough luck recently after the Republican Party successfully censured her. Since then, Cheney, who is running for re-election, has lost some vital endorsements which are being given to her freedom-loving, patriotic, and conservative opponent Harriet Hageman.
Hageman has been making waves in Wyoming and received the endorsement of President Donald J. Trump back in September. Trump said in a statement “I strongly endorse Republican House of Representatives Candidate Harriet Hageman from Wyoming who is running against warmonger and disloyal Republican, Liz Cheney.”
Having Trump’s endorsement is quite an accomplishment, but Hageman’s list of supporters doesn’t stop with the president. House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy gave his endorsement on Thursday. McCarthy said, “I look forward to welcoming Harriet to a Republican majority next Congress, where together, we will hold the Biden Administration accountable and deliver much-needed solutions for the American people.”
With rising support for Hageman, Cheney is becoming uneasy. She knows her anti-trump, pro-establishment, D.C sell-out views are unpopular and, quite frankly, Un-American. She knows she’s on her way out and is grasping at straws to stay relevant. If she was smart, she would choose not to run for re-election and go out with some dignity like her equally pathetic colleague, Adam Kinzinger.
Elise Stefanik soon followed suit and also endorsed Hageman for 2022. “I’m proud to endorse Harriet Hageman in her race to unseat Liz Cheney. House Republicans were ready for a change when I took over as Conference Chair, and it’s resoundingly clear that Wyoming families are too.” Stefanik later echoed the sentiment that Cheney has left the Republican party and Wyoming behind, saying “Liz Cheney abandoned her constituents to become a Far-Left Pelosi puppet.”
Nonetheless, Cheney has decided to run again, which will make Hageman’s victory even sweeter for conservatives across the country. Hageman has been outspoken when it comes to issues like the 2nd Amendment and election integrity.
Hageman summed up the difference between herself and Liz Cheney in this tweet:
Liz Cheney has the support of Never Trumpers Mitt Romney, Karl Rove, and the Northern Virginia special interests. I have the support of President Trump and the people of Wyoming. That is the difference in this race. https://t.co/hCqjjsEyO0
