Wyoming Republicans may loathe Rep. Liz Cheney for betraying the GOP and joining the Democrats’ witch hunt over the Capitol intrusion on January 6, 2021, but it appears Hollywood lefties still like her.
Thus, she enjoys this advantage. Which is a plus.
Two weeks before the Wyoming primary, Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, is in severe jeopardy in the polls. Newsweek reports that polls have placed her 30 points behind Harriet Hageman in the Republican primary.
The Casper Star-Tribune reported last week that its most recent survey of registered voters in Wyoming showed Cheney with only 30% support, compared to 52% for Hageman, who was backed by former President Donald Trump. Voting in advance has already begun.
The congressman, of course, voted to impeach President Trump in the aftermath of the alleged “insurrection” and then compounded her insolence by becoming one of just two traitorous Republicans to provide cover for the Democrats’ sham committee on January 6.
Cheney quickly faced recrimination. Soon after her vote to impeach Trump, the Wyoming GOP voted unanimously to reprimand her behavior. Only eight of the central committee’s seventy-four members voted against the censure.
Cheney was ecstatic when leftist actor Kevin Costner, who backed Pete Buttigieg in the 2020 Democratic primary battle, came to social media last week to proclaim his support for her hopeless candidacy.
Costner was spotted on the set of “Yellowstone,” his TV series about a dysfunctional, corrupt family ranch in Montana, wearing a “I’m for Liz Cheney” T-shirt, despite having no links to Wyoming.
Cheney was ecstatic, tweeting a photo of the actor’s endorsement and stating, “Real men put nation before party.”

One wonders whether those thousands of Wyoming men who are voting for Hageman appreciate that Cheney is suggesting they aren’t real men.
CNN recently tried to gauge state voters’ level of support for the congresswoman and was shocked at how dismal her chances of re-election seem.
The Cowboy State apparently is ready to move on from the Cheney era. CONTINUE READING…
