We might all have been expecting this, but that doesn’t make the victory less sweet.
Donald Trump’s MAGA movement officially took down another RINO dynasty on Tuesday when Harriet Hageman defeated Liz Cheney in the Wyoming primary elections.
Hageman was leading by more than 30 points by 10 pm with only 19% of the vote counted when Cheney officially conceded the race. The warmonger gave a speech shortly after claiming she “will do whatever it takes to ensure Donald Trump is anywhere near the Oval Office.”

That sure does sound like a threat, Liz, and definitely doesn’t ring true to your defense of “democracy.”
What if the American voters want Donald Trump in office again? What if his policies are better for the country than anything your coalition of warmongers would propose? Would you subvert the will of the people to settle a personal political vendetta against a Former President?
During her concession speech, Cheney went on to claim that she could’ve easily won the election if only she stood behind Donald Trump and his America First movement, which she refused to do on principle.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), conceding defeat:
“2 years ago, I won this primary with 73% of the vote. I could easily have done the same… But it would have required that I go along with President Trump’s lie about the 2020 election… That was a path I could not and would not take.” pic.twitter.com/8bPYQDZrxP

Liz Cheney would rather stand on the principles of her father’s Republican Party: endless foreign wars, corruption, and handholding with progressive Democrats.
Hageman, who stands firmly behind Trump and his MAGA movement, will now face off against the Democrat opponent in November. She gave a victory speech late Tuesday evening after Cheney officially conceded.

Needless to say, Trump couldn’t be happier about Hageman’s victory.

Trump, who remains broadly popular in the state, prioritized defeating Cheney, having held a rally railing against her in Casper in May in a push to invigorate his base to vote against her — but were beginning to think that wasn’t necessary.
CNN even traveled to Wyoming ahead of the primary election and seemingly couldn’t find one Republican willing to vote for Cheney.
Remember that time CNN went all the way to Wyoming and could not find a single Liz Cheney voter?

He celebrated Cheney’s defeat Tuesday and thanked the people of Wyoming for voting out his political nemesis.
“Liz Cheney should be ashamed of herself, the way she acted, and her spiteful, sanctimonious words and actions towards others,” Trump said on his Truth Social platform. “Now she can finally disappear into the depths of political oblivion where, I am sure, she will be much happier than she is right now.”
Liz Cheney is the fourth of 10 House Republicans who voted in favor of impeachment to lose their primary.
