Although Tuesday night was not the “Red Wave” that many Republican voters were hoping for, there were crucial wins the GOP picked up across the country. One of those was Wyoming Republican House candidate Harriet Hageman winning a landslide victory to replace Lyin’ Liz Cheney.
The election was unquestionable as Hageman collected nearly 70 percent of the total vote, leaving the Democratic candidate with less than 25 percent of the vote. Her decisive victory was met with all-around praise from Republicans, including an endorsement from Donald Trump.
Wyoming GOP senators, Cynthia Lummis and John Barrasso, congratulated Hageman in a public statement. Sen. Barrasso stated, “Congratulations to Harriet Hageman on her decisive victory tonight. I look forward to working side by side with Harriet along with Senator Lummis for Wyoming. Together, we will be a reliable, conservative and effective team. We will focus on issues that matter most to the people of Wyoming: unleashing American energy, fighting inflation, securing our border and cutting wasteful Washington spending.”
Sen. Lummis alongside Barrasso applauded her victory stating, “Harriet Hageman has spent a lifetime defending Wyoming’s natural resources while championing our people, businesses and rural way of life, and I am pleased she will be taking this experience and commitment to Wyoming to Congress. She is the conservative fighter our state needs in the U.S. House of Representatives and will be an excellent teammate for Senator Barrasso and I in Washington.”
It’s encouraging to see a true Republican replace RINO Liz Cheney and it’s hopefully indicative of a broader trend that Republican voters are tired of weak GOP leaders not standing up for their constituents.
Liz Cheney ignored Wyoming voters who did not support her incessant attempts to attack former President Donald Trump. She voted to impeach Donald Trump following the January 6th protests and even served on the January 6th committee to investigate Trump. It’s clear her home state was not putting up with her antics as she was unquestionably defeated in the Wyoming Republican primary in August of this year.
Cheney has even gone as far as endorsing Democrat candidates ahead of the midterms in an effort to subvert GOP influence. She publicly endorsed Michigan Democrat, Rep. Elissa Slotkin, was very critical of Ohio Senate candidate JD Vance, and endorsed Virginia Democratic candidate Rep. Abigail Spanberger. Furthermore, her political action group, The Great Task, spent $500,000 toward efforts to undermine Republican candidates in Arizona.
People were probably hoping that Liz Cheney would get the message and retire from political life after she got the boot in the Wyoming primary elections, however, it seems like she is not backing down. Ever since the midterm election on Tuesday she has been celebrating that the red wave didn’t happen to the extent it was supposed to. She claimed it was a victory for “team normal“, which basically just means the Democrats since “normal” Republicans have no platform anymore and drift more left-of-center as the years go by.
She is doing nothing for the interests of red voters in this country, as her efforts only undermine the GOP and advance the interests of the left. She might as well just switch parties at this point.
