Trump’s endorsed candidate leads Cheney in Wyoming primary poll

A Wyoming Republican House candidate backed by former President Donald Trump defeated Rep. Liz Cheney in a Republican straw poll in Wyoming.

According to the Casper Star Tribune, Harriet Hageman, endorsed by Trump in September, won with 59 votes to Cheney’s six votes.

Cheney has been under criticism by many in her own party after voting to impeach Trump after Jan. 6, 2021. She has also served on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) House select committee.

Hagemann has been strongly opposed to the Biden administration’s efforts.

“Joe Biden does not have the authority to require federal workers take a coronavirus vaccine,” Hageman said regarding his federal worker vaccine mandate turned down by the Supreme Court.

The strong appeal of Hageman over Cheney shows the current congresswoman may be in big trouble when it comes to the state’s primary in August. If so, the win will continue to boost support for Trump-endorsed candidates as he considers a possible comeback bid for president.
