With only 10 days until the primary election, polls place Wyoming Republican Representative Liz Cheney in a precarious position as she attempts to hold off challenger Harriet Hageman, who has the support of former President Donald Trump.
Trump was upset with Cheney after she and nine other House Republicans voted to remove him from office last year for inciting his supporters to attack the United States. on January 6, 2021, Capitol. The congresswoman has been one of the former president’s harshest critics ever since, and she also decries fellow Republicans who continue to support him.
Trump supported attorney and former Republican National Committee (RNC) member Hageman last September in her campaign to unseat Cheney, who has served as Wyoming’s at-large district representative since 2017. Recent polls indicate that Hageman has a significant lead even though the incumbent Republican was able to collect nearly $3 million in campaign contributions during the most recent fundraising quarter alone.
