Liz Cheney has no shot at being President.
She was beaten decisively by her Trump-backed challenger Harriet Hageman in the Wyoming GOP primary.
Harriet Hageman, the Republican backed by Donald Trump, managed to take down the former president’s most prominent critic, Rep. Liz Cheney, in the GOP race for Wyoming’s at-large congressional seat on Tuesday.
Multiple outlets called the race shortly after 10 p.m. as Hageman led by more than 30 points with 19% of the votes counted. Cheney conceded shortly thereafter in a fiery speech where she blasted Trump for the Jan. 6 Capitol attack and warned that more danger is on the horizon if Trump and fellow 2020 election deniers are voted into office.
Even GOP Senator Mitt Romney, who backed Cheney in the race, is admitting that she would not win the nomination if she chooses to run in 2024.
Romney, who represents Utah in the U.S. Senate, told the South Valley Chamber of Commerce in Sandy, Utah on Thursday that Cheney would definitively not be the Republican nominee.
“I’m not going to encourage anyone to run for president. I’ve done that myself, and that’s something I’m not doing again. I don’t know if she really wants to do that. She would not become the nominee if she were to run. I can’t imagine that would occur,” Romney said alongside Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Rep. John Curtis, UT-03, the Deseret News reported.
The GOP is no longer the party of RINOs!
