On his social media accounts, former president Donald Trump celebrated Rep. Liz Cheney’s loss to Harriet Hageman in the GOP primary for the at-large congressional seat in Wyoming on Tuesday.
ALLIES OF TRUMP CELEBRATE CHENEY’S PRIMARY WIN
Cheney, one of just two Republicans serving on the House select committee looking into what led up to the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, has perhaps become the most vociferous opponent of Trump in the Republican Party and was expelled from the House GOP leadership last year as a result.
Trump said on Truth Social, “Congratulations to Harriet Hageman on her fantastic and very decisive WIN in Wyoming.” “This is a fantastic outcome for America and a resounding condemnation of the political hacks and thugs who made up the Unselect Committee. Liz Cheney ought to be embarrassed of herself, her behavior, and her vindictive, sanctimonious remarks and deeds toward other people. She can finally vanish into political obscurity at this point, where I’m sure she’ll be much happier than she is now. Many thanks, Wyoming!
Wining her primary “would have required that I go along with President Trump’s deception about the 2020 election,” Cheney said in a concession address on Tuesday.
Republicans running for governor today, as we gather, “deny the outcome of the 2020 election and may refuse to certify the results of future elections if they oppose the results,” Cheney stated. “There are people running for secretary of state who might decline to disclose the actual popular vote figures in next elections. Additionally, there are congressional candidates—including those running in Wyoming—who refuse to concede Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election and call for states to invalidate the results. Our country is speeding once more toward a crisis, anarchy, and violence. No American should back election deniers in any role with real responsibility where their disregard for the law will compromise our future.”
