(TheRedAlertNews.com) – HAPPENING NOW: United States Congresswoman Liz Cheney has lost her primary race in Wyoming and will be out of Congress next January.
According to experts who maintain election records, Cheney lost to Harriet Hageman by 37 points, making this the fourth worst incumbent loss since 1968.
As Breitbart News framed Cheney’s position as she went into the election yesterday:
“Cheney has aggressively attacked Trump for over a year from her perch on the January 6 Committee in the House, a post to which she was appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi–a Democrat–in an unheard of arrangement that Pelosi engaged in when she kicked actual Republicans off the committee and then House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy withdrew his Party from it altogether. Cheney, who was one of the 10 Republicans to vote to impeach Trump in early 2021 in his second impeachment, has made her crusade against the former president the centerpiece of her time in office and even lost her conference chair position in the process. Trump, meanwhile, has moved to settle the score with her by endorsing Hageman, a rock-solid conservative who is now polling well above double digits ahead of Cheney in every poll conducted in the lead-up to the election.”
And Breitbart’s noting Cheney was behind proved accurate as Cheney lost by one of the worst margins for an incumbent in the history of the United States House of Representatives.
Following her defeat, Cheney strongly hinted she would run for the presidency in 2024.
