Liz Cheney defeated in Wyoming GOP primary

Aug. 16, 2022, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney’s defeat to Harriet Hageman in Republican Party primary for the Wyoming at large Congressional District:

“January 6 Trump insurrection conspiracy theorist Rep. Liz Cheney was annihilated in today’s Wyoming primary by a humiliating margin, an unprecedented defeat for a sitting incumbent Representative.  Cheney, who has spent her last term in Congress providing political cover for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Trump Derangement Syndrome, made clear that she did not care what those who elected her thought about former President Trump, making a mockery of her role as a ‘representative’ of the people of the Cowboy State.

“Today, the people of Wyoming had their say, and on January 3, 2023 former Representative Liz Cheney will likely find herself in a never-Trump Think Tank writing articles for the dozens of fans she has across the country.”
