New Wyoming Poll: Liz Cheney Supported By 15 Percent Of Republicans, 98 Percent Of Democrats

A new poll out Wednesday shows Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., down by nearly 30 points just six days before the state’s Tuesday primary.

The Wyoming Primary Election Survey conducted by the University of Wyoming shows a whopping 98 percent of Democrats supporting Cheney and only 2 percent supporting her Trump-endorsed opponent, attorney Harriet Hageman. A measly 15 percent of overall Republicans reported support for incumbent lawmaker Cheney.

Meanwhile, Hageman leads among likely GOP primary voters 57 to 28 percent. No other candidate landed with more than 2 percent support while nearly 10 percent of likely Republican primary voters remained unsure.

On the day Hageman launched her bid to unseat the three-term incumbent with an endorsement from former President Donald Trump, Cheney embraced the challenge.

“Here’s a sound bite for you,” Cheney wrote on Twitter. “Bring it.”

Now Cheney is poised to become the latest House lawmaker that voted to impeach Trump to lose a primary. The University of Wyoming survey results show an even wider gap between the two contenders than a poll sponsored by the Casper-Star Tribune last month showing Cheney down by 22 points. Of the nine other House Republicans to join Cheney in endorsing the Democrats’ snap impeachment effort, four retired, three lost their primaries, and only two prevailed. Cheney’s race is the last one to be decided.

After she was overwhelmingly booted out of House leadership last spring, Cheney escalated her feud with former President Trump, which became a hallmark of her time in the lower chamber. Last summer, Cheney joined House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Select Committee on Jan. 6 as vice chair, antagonizing voters in her home state who voted for Trump by a wider margin than anywhere else in the country two years ago. Wednesday’s poll shows nearly 60 percent of likely GOP primary voters see the investigation, which is devoid of opposition, as unfair. Only about 27 percent reported viewing the probe as fair and impartial.

In turn, the endangered congresswoman has turned to Democrats to save her re-election campaign, sending out instructions on how to change party registrations ahead of Tuesday’s primary. The Wyoming Republican Party voted in November to no longer recognize Cheney as a Republican.

The University of Wyoming poll was conducted July 25 – Aug. 6 and interviewed 836 Wyoming residents including 562 likely voters in the upcoming GOP primary. Questions about the Republican contest hold a +/- 4.1 percent margin of error while statewide questions possess a +/-3.4 percent margin of error.

Dick Cheney Ignores His Own Record While Indicting Trump As Worst Threat To American Democracy Ever

Former Vice President Dick Cheney dismissed his own record launching an overseas war based on junk intelligence when he claimed Thursday that former President Donald Trump is the worst threat to the republic since the Declaration of Independence was signed.

On Thursday, endangered Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, whom the state GOP no longer recognizes as a Republican, published a video of her father’s endorsement.

“In our nation’s 246-year history, there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump,” said the former vice president under George W. Bush.

“He lost his election, and he lost big,” Dick Cheney added, despite Trump only losing the 2020 contest by less than 50,000 votes across three tipping-point states. Nevertheless, Cheney said, “I know it, he knows it, and deep down I think most Republicans know it.”

The 81-year-old longtime presidential adviser, whose Washington resume stretches from the Ford White House to both Bush administrations, appeared in the one-minute ad less than two weeks before Liz Cheney faces primary voters at the ballot box. The three-term incumbent is up against Trump-endorsed attorney Harriet Hageman, who, according to a July poll sponsored by the Casper-Star Tribune, is up by 22 points.

During the second Bush administration, Dick Cheney was a “chief architect” of the Iraq war, sending American troops into a conflict that would last decades without an exit strategy. The invasion was launched under the pretense that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was harboring weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) based on U.S. intelligence. The classified information cited by the White House to justify the war however, turned out to be one of the worst intelligence failures in modern American history, if not the worst failure.

The oldest living former vice president’s assertion that Trump is the greatest threat to the republic in its existence, meanwhile, glosses over the dozens of historical figures who surely did more harm. Was Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy who oversaw a four-year insurrection, less of a threat than Donald Trump? Was John Wilkes Booth, who shot President Abraham Lincoln, less of a threat? What about Benedict Arnold?

It’s unlikely that Dick Cheney’s video will save Liz’s House seat. According to an Axios poll in March, less than 2 in 5 GOP Wyoming voters reported a favorable opinion of former vice president. Nearly half, 48 percent, said they view Dick Cheney unfavorably.

Liz Cheney Asks Democrats to Vote for Her in Wyoming Republican Primary

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has sent direct mailers to Wyoming Democrats, requesting they change parties to be eligible to vote in the August Republican primary.

The mailer has direct instructions on how Democrat Wyoming voters can change their party affiliation to cast a vote for Cheney, who is down 28 points to Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman. The mailer also displays Cheney’s campaign web address for Democrat voters to learn more specifics.

“DO I HAVE TO BE REGISTERED AS A REPUBLICAN TO VOTE FOR LIZ IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY?” the website link reads. “HOW DO I CHANGE MY PARTY AFFILIATION TO REGISTER AS A REPUBLICAN SO I CAN VOTE FOR LIZ?” another says.

Joseph Barbuto, the chairman of the Wyoming Democrat Party, was among the constituents who received Cheney’s direct mail piece. Speaking with the New York Times, he said Cheney’s plot of winning reelection by Democrat votes is likely to fail.

“Even if every Democrat in the state switched over,” he stated, “I don’t think it’d be enough to help her.”

Wyoming has about four times more registered Republican voters than Democrats. According to the Wyoming secretary of state’s office, Republicans increased voter registration over Democrats by 1,689 between the months of January and June. Democrat and unaffiliated voter registrations sunk by 1,303.

Cheney’s direct mailing scheme is a flip-flop from what she told the Times in February. “That is not something that I have contemplated, that I have organized, or that I will organize,” Cheney said about soliciting Democrat votes.

But Cheney has changed her mind and is trying to win the Republican primary with Democrat votes, a sign of desperation. Multiples polls show Cheney is losing big to Hageman. The latest June poll marked Cheney 28 points behind the Trump-endorsed candidate.

It is not the first time Cheney has deployed dirty tactics to win the Republican primary. In May, a left-wing political advertising agency began promoting Cheney to Democrats. The agency’s website indicates it is affiliated with far-left Democrat organizations, such as President Biden’s campaign arm, Planned Parenthood, and Black Lives Matter.

“We’re currently working on a new project in Wyoming, where we’re asking for people to explain why Liz Cheney is their ideal representative, regardless of their party affiliation,” an email from the agency read to Wyoming residents.

Cheney, who was voted by the Wyoming GOP to no longer be recognized as a Republican, has taken lots of heat from infrequent visits to Wyoming. Born in Wisconsin, Cheney has been accused of spending that vast amount of her time in Washington, DC, helping Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) conduct the partisan January 6 committee.

“Liz Cheney has lost Wyoming. Liz Cheney doesn’t live in Wyoming. She doesn’t represent us,” Hageman told Breitbart News. “She doesn’t represent our values.”

In May of 2021, Cheney was removed as GOP conference chair after the Republican caucus held a no-confidence vote upon reaching a boiling point with Dick Cheney’s daughter. In February, the Republican National Committee in February symbolically censured Cheney for allying with Democrats.

Soon afterward, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) endorsed Hageman in the primary race, a rare move for a House minority leader.

“After spending time with Harriet, it is readily apparent she will always listen and prioritize the needs of her local communities and is focused on tackling our nation’s biggest problems,” McCarthy said. “I look forward to serving with Harriet for years to come.”

As Flooding Ravages Wyoming And Shuts Down Yellowstone, Liz Cheney Is In D.C. Trying To Indict Trump

After heavy rains triggered flooding and rockslides in Yellowstone National Park this week, federal officials shut down Wyoming’s largest tourist destination while the state’s at-large lawmaker remains fixated on an effort to indict former President Donald Trump.

On Monday, the National Park Service announced a full evacuation of the park, which is larger than the states of Delaware and Rhode Island combined, and closed its five entrances to visitors.

“Due to record flooding events in the park and more precipitation in the forecast, we have made the decision to close Yellowstone to all inbound visitation,” said Yellowstone superintendent Cam Sholly in a press release keeping the park closed at least through Wednesday. “We will not know timing of the park’s reopening until flood waters subside and we’re able to assess the damage throughout the park.”

At the same time that Wyoming’s largest attraction shut down, the state’s sole congresswoman, Liz Cheney, was in Washington D.C. conducting the second episode of her beloved Jan. 6 Committee’s Soviet-style show trial to prosecute Trump and his supporters. So far, a single tweet Tuesday afternoon is the extent of Cheney’s public addressing of the flooding that’s shut down her state’s top recreational space which drew 4.9 million visits last year and added more than $444 million to local communities in 2020.

The flooding is “probably the worst thing that’s happened disaster-wise since the fires of ’88,” said Jeff Olson, a resident of Cheney’s adopted hometown, in an interview with Jackson Hole News & Guide. “To have all five entrances closed because of one event during the summer season? It’s crazy.”

In 1988, fires ravaged the park all summer burning down about 800,000 acres, or more than a third of the park, according to the National Park Service.

The last two press releases from Cheney’s office, however, are each transcripts of her remarks in Monday’s Jan. 6 hearing. Despite the fact that half of her state is under the jurisdiction of the federal government, the Wyoming lawmaker is also no longer on the House Natural Resources Committee, having instead embraced her vendetta against Trump and his supporters as a hallmark of her time in the lower chamber.

Cheney has faced rising criticism about her absence from the state as she uses her remaining time in Congress to spar with Trump. The Wyoming representative serves as vice chair of the Democrats’ weaponized Jan. 6 Committee, where her appointment from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi followed a prohibition on members appointed by the House minority leader. In April, a Federalist analysis of campaign finance data in her race against Trump-endorsed attorney Harriet Hageman revealed Cheney is relying on Beltway donors to fund a fourth term. Only 2 percent of the incumbent congresswoman’s total contributions, with $10 million to spend this cycle, came among Wyoming constituents.

On a rare visit to the state in February, Cheney snubbed voters to mingle with reporters instead.

Donald Trump Rallies Wyoming Against ‘Lapdog for Pelosi’ Liz Cheney

Former President Donald Trump rallied supporters in Casper, Wyoming, on Saturday, urging them to vote against Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) in the Republican primary.

“Worse than the terrible Democrats are the backstabbing RINO republicans that are helping them do their act,” Trump said. “And there is no RINO in America who has thrown in her lot with the radical left more than Liz Cheney.”

During the rally, Trump described Cheney as a “lapdog for Pelosi and a human soundbite machine for CNN and MSDNC.”

“She has gone crazy,” Trump continued. “Now I get it. I’ve been hearing these stories for years. Now I get it. She’s gone totally crazy.”

Trump painted the entire Cheney family as guilty of failing the country.

“The Cheneys are die-hard globalists and warmongers that have been plunging us into new conflicts for decades, spilling American blood and spending American treasure all over the world,” he said.

The president shared a meme on the screen at the rally, morphing her face together with former President George W. Bush.

“She’s the face of the Washington Swamp and the same failed foreign policy of the Clintons, Bushes, the Obamas, Bidens, and the entire sick political establishment,” Trump said.

He called Cheney an “atrocious RINO” who “hates the voters of the Republican Party, and he accused her of “loving endless nonsensical bloody horrible wars.”

The former president also criticized the Wyoming primary system, which allows Democrats to vote in the state’s Republican primaries.

Trump said he spoke with Gov. Mark Gordon (R-WY), who met him at the airport in Wyoming and offered him a hat.

“I’d rather not have the hat, I’d rather have Democrats not voting in the Republican primary,” Trump said. “I don’t need hats.”

Trump praised Cheney’s challenger, Rep. Harriet Hageman (R-WY), as a true representative of the state.

“I know Wyoming. I love Wyoming. I AM Wyoming,” Hageman said to the cheering crowd.

“I have fought for Wyoming, and I will fight for you in Washington, DC, and I will take that fight to D.C. as soon as I defeat Liz Cheney,” she said.

Liz Cheney Weaponizes Racial Division For Political Power, Baselessly Labeling GOP Leadership White Supremacist

Wyoming Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney reached a new milestone in her transition from a center-right lawmaker to a full-blown collaborator in the left’s cultural revolution within 18 months. On Monday, Cheney claimed, without evidence, members of GOP House leadership where she was expelled last May are enablers of white supremacy.

“The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and antisemitism,” Cheney wrote on Twitter. “History has taught us that what begins with words ends in far worse. [GOP] leaders must renounce and reject these views and those who hold them.”

The post was published Monday morning after an 18-year-old shooter allegedly killed 10 people in a Buffalo supermarket on Saturday. Moments before the killing spree, in which the majority of victims were black, the white shooter published an online “manifesto” airing antisemitic grievances in 180 pages where he also showcased anxiety over “replacement.”

The racial circumstances of the tragedy make the event ripe for leftists and their allies in the corporate media and government to stoke their routine race war, smearing political dissidents as complicit in the latest episode of domestic terrorism. Those allies now include Cheney, whose competitive re-election campaign has been endorsed by Occupy Democrats and funded by the Lincoln Project.

Corporate outlets that were quick to move on from the Waukesha Christmas Massacre last fall — when a black suspect motivated by anti-white racism allegedly rammed an SUV through a holiday parade, brutally killing at least six — have been even quicker to place blame for this weekend’s New York shooting on Fox News.

The New York Times ran a 2,000-word piece Sunday tying the Buffalo attack to the modern Republican Party, Fox News, and the network’s lead prime-time host, Tucker Carlson.

“By his own account, the Buffalo suspect, Payton S. Gendron, followed a lonelier path to radicalization, immersing himself in replacement theory and other kinds of racist and antisemitic content easily found on internet forums, and casting Black Americans, like Hispanic immigrants, as ‘replacers’ of white Americans,” the Times wrote. “No public figure has promoted replacement theory more loudly or relentlessly than the Fox host Tucker Carlson, who has made elite-led demographic change a central theme of his show since joining Fox’s prime-time lineup in 2016.”

Never mind that the “manifesto” from the weekend shooting’s suspect showcased his own contempt for conservatism and Fox News while never mentioning Carlson.

That didn’t stop other outlets from following suit, capitalizing on the episode to amplify their predetermined narrative that the Republican Party, its leadership, and rival networks are to blame for another episode of politically motivated violence. The Washington Post targeted House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik in particular, who replaced Cheney in GOP leadership a year ago.

“Stefanik echoed racist theory allegedly espoused by Buffalo suspect,” headlined the paper, referring to the New York congresswoman’s objections to unchecked immigration — legitimate concerns that were even given credence by Politico.

Stefanik was indicted by the Post as a lawmaker captured by “Replacement Theory,” an idea declared conspiracy by legacy media hellbent on smearing Republicans who merely repeat the open desires of left-wing activists. Former Trump communications adviser Michael Anton outlined the irony as “The Celebration Parallax” in the American Mind.

The Left insists that concerns from certain quarters that immigration policy in America (and Europe) amounts to a ‘great replacement’ is a ‘dangerous,’ ‘evil,’ ‘racist,’ ‘false’ ‘conspiracy theory.’ But a leftist New York Times columnist can write an article entitled ‘We Can Replace Them‘ and … nothing. Same fundamental point, except she’s all for it and her targets aren’t. A U.S. Senator can exult that demographic change will doom Republicans. Joe Biden himself can refer to an ‘unrelenting stream of immigration.’ Except they’re celebrating it and calling for it. Anyone on the Right who uses the exact same words will not merely be denounced; the very fact pattern that is affirmed when Biden says it will be denied when the Rightist repeats it.

The knee-jerk reaction to cast anyone on the right as agitators of extremist violence — nuance be darned and leftist attacks be whitewashed when the profile of the suspect and the victims don’t fit the right demographics — has now drawn Cheney as new recruit, adopting the left’s double standards.

Cheney joined the media chorus to smear opponents in leadership as responsible for spilled blood in Buffalo despite the fact that House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., was almost killed by a leftist “Bernie Bro” five years ago who wanted to “terminate the Republican Party.” But yes, Liz Cheney wants you to think that Scalise is a cheerleader for extremist violence.

Wyoming’s sole representative was coopted by Democrats last summer when she enthusiastically accepted a request from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to vice chair the Select Committee on Jan. 6. Cheney’s appointment replaced Republicans selected by GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who were barred from fulfilling their congressional service by the speaker.

One of 10 Republicans in the lower chamber who supported former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment, Cheney has carved out antagonism of Republican voters as a hallmark of her time in Congress.

Cheney faces a primary challenge from Trump-endorsed attorney Harriet Hageman in August.

Liz Cheney Has Single-Handedly Destroyed Dick Cheney’s Reputation In Wyoming

In a desperate bid to save her seat, Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney is now courting the same voters who once dragged a statue of her father through the streets of Jackson before toppling it 15 years ago.

“Without an aggressive campaign strategy to win over Democrats, it might seem like a tough sell,” Politico reported from Wyoming on Monday. “…But some Democratic voters in Jackson are embracing her. They appreciate Cheney’s work in Congress prosecuting Trump and they’re ready to switch parties to vote for her.”

The crusade to allow Democrats to hijack the statewide Republican primary in favor of a Cheney signals a sharp turn in the family’s reputation from when Liz Cheney’s vice president father represented Wyoming’s conservative voters in the House for 10 years. After enjoying decades of political popularity in the state and cultivating a family legacy, the Cheney dynasty appears poised to end as the incumbent at-large congresswoman turns to Wyoming’s liberal voters in the northwest to send her back to Washington for a fourth term.

According to a snapshot of the latest polling in the pivotal primary revealed by Axios’s Jonathan Swan, less than 2 in 5 GOP Wyoming voters reported a favorable opinion of former Vice President Dick Cheney. Nearly half, 48 percent, viewed Dick Cheney unfavorably.

Other recent polling has shown Liz Cheney herself underwater among constituents who voted for President Donald Trump in the widest margin of any state in the nation a year and a half ago.

Out of three surveys conducted in the aftermath of the 2020 election, Cheney failed to garner more than 29 percent support among likely primary voters.

Meanwhile, Cheney has remained largely absent from the state she represents as Trump-endorsed primary challenger Harriet Hageman builds grassroots support and earns endorsements from House leadership, which is rare for incumbent challengers. Last month, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced that Hageman had the full encouragement of the GOP’s top brass on her crusade to oust the current congresswoman, who has undermined Democratic norms by weaponizing the lower chamber against political dissidents.

“After spending time with Harriet, it is readily apparent she will always listen and prioritize the needs of her local communities and is focused on tackling our nation’s biggest problems,” McCarthy told The Federalist in February. “I look forward to serving with Harriet for years to come.”

Just days prior to McCarthy’s primary endorsement, Cheney snubbed constituents by meeting with reporters and media executives over party activists, who are growing sour on their congresswoman as she calls them “crazies” in The New York Times.

In November, the Wyoming GOP voted no longer to recognize Cheney as a Republican. The Republican National Committee censured her for “participating in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse” by leading the Select Committee on Jan. 6.

While Wyoming visits were rare even before Cheney made feuding with the former Republican president a hallmark of her congressional legacy post-Jan. 6, 2021, her presence in the state has now become nearly nonexistent.

“She has shunned town halls and other voter forums in Wyoming’s overwhelmingly red counties in favor of controlled events,” Politico reported, noting that she has an upcoming event next week that will feature “pre-selected questions” answered to an audience of paid ticket holders.

Rebecca Bextel, a 41-year-old Trump supporter who is planning to attend, told the paper that the cost to see her representative is “a slap in the face.”

“We have one person representing us,” Bextel said, “and she shows up in town and it costs $10 to see her. It’s embarrassing.”

GOP Senators Object To Proposal To Label Mask Objectors ‘Terrorists’

More than half a dozen Republican senators penned a letter last week demanding the Department of Justice (DOJ) reject a request to stamp those who protest airplane mask mandates as “terrorists.”

Earlier this month, Delta Air Lines’ CEO Ed Bastian asked the DOJ to add travelers convicted of “unruly” conduct to a new “no-fly” list barring access to commercial air transport. Such conduct warranting the same expulsion granted to suspected terrorists include those who’ve resisted compliance with mask requirements, which made up nearly three-quarters of airplane disputes last year, according to data from the Federal Aviation Administration published by CNBC.

“Like other airlines, Delta maintains its own no-fly list for anyone who disrupts onboard safety or refuses to comply with crew instructions,” Bastian wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Tuesday doubling down on his request. “But unfortunately, we’ve seen cases in which unruly passengers have simply switched airlines and continued to fly even after endangering flight safety… Only a comprehensive list overseen by the federal government can close the loopholes and prevent disrupters from flying.”

Last week, Republican lawmakers objected to the push for treating those who protest airplane mask mandates as suspected terrorists.

“While airlines are currently free to deny service to any individual over past transgressions on their flights, the federal government’s role in denying access to the commercial aviation network has been limited to ensuring that suspected terrorists remain off of domestic flights,” senators wrote. “The creation of this list by DOJ would result in a severe restriction on the ability of citizens to fully exercise their constitutional right to engage in interstate transportation.”

Face masks have been required on airplanes since President Joe Biden took office last year and signed the mandate as one of his first moves in office. On track to expire March 18, the mandate is likely to be extended again as compulsory facial coverings have become a religious movement among leftists.

“While we strongly condemn any violence towards airline workers,” lawmakers added, “there is significant uncertainty around the efficacy of this mandate.”

The Republicans pointed to Senate testimony from the CEO of Southwest Airlines in December who conceded the masks “don’t add much” to passenger protection from the Wuhan coronavirus considering sophisticated ventilation on modern aircraft.

“The statistics, I recall, is that 99.97 percent of airborne pathogens are captured by the [high-efficiency particulate air] filtering system,” Southwest CEO Gary Kelly told the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. “It’s turned over every two or three minutes.”

The efficacy of masks to stop transmission of the Wuhan coronavirus to begin with remains ambiguous at best.

Wyoming Republican Sen. Cynthia Lummis, who led the letter to Garland last week with seven GOP colleagues, told The Federalist no-fly lists have already barred law-abiding travelers from commercial airline access.

“There are real concerns about the current no-fly list for terrorists, because it has accidentally stopped honest, law-abiding Americans,” Lummis said. “This is unacceptable, and I have real concerns that an additional no-fly list would do that more and more.”

Lummis also pointed to collusion between the DOJ and the National School Boards Association (NSBC) last fall seeking to indict concerned parents about race-based curricula and obsessive COVID protocols as “domestic terrorists” as reason to be skeptical of the department’s approach weaponizing the “terrorist” label on political dissidents. Garland admitted before House lawmakers in October the NSBA’s recommendation motivated the DOJ to use resources investigating upset parents.

“Given concerns over the Department of Education and Department of Justice’s responses to parents protesting radical school boards, I think my concerns about this list are doubly warranted,” Lummis told The Federalist, as liberal columnists such as the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin claim Republicans are defending “thugs.” “The Department of Justice must not unilaterally create a new no-fly list to restrict the constitutional rights of American citizens.”

Liz Cheney Snubs Voters To Mingle With Reporters Instead, Calling Constituents ‘Crazies’

Endangered Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney chose to mingle with reporters and media executives over attending an annual grassroots event last weekend during a rare appearance in her home state.

“Where’s Liz Cheney? The Wyoming Republican’s Exile From Wyoming Republicans,” The New York Times headlined its reporting Wednesday highlighting Cheney’s routine absence.

“Ms. Cheney hasn’t appeared at a state Republican Party function in more than two years and hasn’t been to an in-person event for any of the party’s 23 county chapters since 2020,” the Times published.

While Republicans held a major prom-themed fundraiser in southwest Wyoming Saturday, the “biggest night of the year” for the area’s Republicans, Cheney was in the state capital of Cheyenne at an annual gathering for the Wyoming Press Association. Local constituents made clear to The Federalist last fall their at-large congresswoman’s visit anywhere beyond the northwest region of the state, referred to as the “California” portion of Wyoming, was a rare sighting to begin with. She now faces a competitive primary challenge from a Trump-endorsed opponent, land-use attorney Harriet Hageman, a local of Cheyenne.

Cheney’s focus on Washington rather than Wyoming, the Times wrote, “is raising questions in Wyoming about whether she is counting on Democrats to bail her out in the August primary — or even whether she really is battling to hold on to her office.”

Cheney’s campaign, which has made an ongoing feud with former President Donald Trump and his supporters the hallmark of her tenure in the lower chamber, is funded in part by the same blue-dollar donors who bankrolled the Lincoln Project. The incumbent congresswoman is also holding East Coast fundraisers with similarly prominent NeverTrump crusaders including Mitt Romney, a Republican senator from Utah.

“I’m not going to convince the crazies and I reject the crazies,” Cheney told the Times Saturday while she gathered with reporters instead of grassroots supporters 230 miles away. “I reject the notion that somehow we don’t have to abide by the rule of law. And the people right now who are in the leadership of our state party, I’m not trying to get their support because they’ve abandoned the Constitution.”

The harsh words came a day after the Republican National Committee (RNC) voted to censure the Wyoming representative for “participating in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse.” As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s personally appointed vice chair of the Select Committee on Jan. 6, Cheney is a key driver of the Democrats’ primary midterm vehicle as it prosecutes political dissidents with no connection to the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

In November, the Wyoming GOP voted to no longer recognize Cheney as a Republican, as the state’s sole member of the lower chamber escalates her attacks on political opponents including those working to unseat the congresswoman at home.
