Harriet Hageman, the Republican congressional candidate who is heavily backed by former President Donald Trump, now holds the GOP nomination for Wyoming's at-large congressional seat after Rep. Liz Cheney conceded on Tuesday.
Liz Cheney was down more than 30 percent when she called Hageman to make the concession. Cheney was one of the 10 House Republicans who voted for the impeachment of former President Donald Trump claiming that he incited deadly violence during the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol building.
The conservative rep faced harsh criticism from former President Trump and his supporters and allies. May of 2021, she was pushed out of her House GOP leadership position. Trump endorsed Hageman in his efforts to oust Cheney and supported her as she entered the Wyoming race in the summer of 2021. Former President Trump and his supporters and allies also successfully encouraged many anti-Cheney candidates to drop out of the race and support Hageman.
Former President Trump, who is the most powerful politician in the GOP traveled to Wyoming to hold a rally for Hageman where he won almost 70% of the popular vote in the 2020 presidential election. Hageman, a conservative lawyer who has fought for land, water, and property rights is a Wyoming native as well as a 2018 gubernatorial candidate. Out of all 10 House Republicans who made the vote to impeach former President Trump, four did not seek another term in congress and out of the six who did run for re-election, four lost in GOP primaries.
