Liz Cheney is the left’s favorite Republican and they’re showering her with campaign cash.
Recent analysis of donations to her campaign finds that the vast majority of donations are not coming from her constituents in Wyoming, but blue states like New York and California.
It has been clear for a while that Cheney is relying on Democrats to drag her across the finish line.
The Federalist reports:
Liz Cheney Rakes In More Money From Northern Virginia Than From Her Home State, Wyoming
Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney celebrated a major fundraising haul last week when this year’s first-quarter filing eclipsed $10 million raised for the endangered lawmaker in a competitive primary. After Cheney raised more than $2.3 million this year alone, her campaign war chest with $6.8 million in cash on hand four months before the GOP contest headlined the swamp-focused Politico’s Playbook.
“In previous cycles, it was common for Cheney to raise a few hundred thousand dollars in a quarter, mostly from Wyoming residents,” the Playbook authors wrote on Monday last week, adding, “with the national attention her race has received, money has poured in from across the country.”
The newsletter linked to an analysis of Cheney’s campaign finances from OpenSecrets published before 2022’s first-quarter filing on April 15. Money from California and Texas now make up the bulk of the Wyoming lawmaker’s funding.
Cheney’s re-election bid is also being financed by the same Democrat donors who bankrolled the Lincoln Project. Her first-quarter filing for this year showed little difference, with Cheney raking more from her “constituents” in northern Virginia, where she spends much of her time, than the constituents who first sent her to Washington in 2016.
This woman is not interested in serving the interests of the people of Wyoming.
Liz Cheney has raised more than $10 million this election cycle, except only a fraction came from her own constituents. She made more among donors in northern Virginia while she called Wyoming voters “crazies.”

Liz Cheney, D-Northern Virginia, has the bad fortune of running for office in Wyoming, a largely Republican state. But her fundraising haul from the regime that her constituents oppose is super impressive. https://t.co/pnvZVQH94N

Cheney should just go to work for CNN and get it over with.
