Liz Cheney beaten by a pro-Trump in a Republican primary


Liz Cheney’s loss to Harriet Hageman is a major victory for Donald Trump in his campaign to defeat Republican lawmakers who voted last year to impeach him following the deadly unrest at the Capitol in Washington.

According to Edison Research, after 18% of ballots counted, Harriet Hageman is credited with 65.1% of the vote against 30.3% for Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Cheney is committed to do everything so that the former president never again becomes president of the United States.

Trump immediately applauded Liz Cheney’s loss: She should be ashamed of herself, the way she actedhe said on his social network, Truth Social. Now she can finally fall into the oblivion of politicshe rejoiced.

In Wyoming, a state that voted more than 70% for Donald Trump in the last presidential election, candidate Harriet Hageman notably supports the theory conveyed by the Trump clan that the 2020 election was stolen to the former president, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

A Republican stronghold, the state of Wyoming is unlikely to prove decisive in November’s midterm elections in which President Joe Biden’s Democratic peers hope to retain their currently very narrow majority in Congress.

It is expected that the Republicans will regain control of the House of Representatives, and even that of the Senate as well.
