Thus hugging Donald Trump as hard as she can against Rep. Cheney who is ON Donald Trump’s case with the House Select Committee hearings….
State audits have found no such situation……
The last poll there …A month ago had Hageman up over Cheney by 20+% points for the GOP primary…..
Harriet Hageman, the top primary challenger to Rep. Liz Cheney (R) for Wyoming’s lone House seat, said on Wednesday that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” against former President Trump, her firmest public stance on the election yet.
Hageman was asked at a candidate forum whether she believed the election was stolen, as Trump and his allies have falsely claimed.
“I think this question is so interesting because the press just absolutely cannot get over this. The election was rigged,” said Hageman, who has received Trump’s backing in the primary set for later this month.
Hageman’s comments come after Cheney pressed her during a debate in late June to say that the election was not stolen from Trump, according to the Casper Star-Tribune.
Cheney accused Hageman of avoiding the question because she is “completely beholden” to Trump, the Star-Tribune reported.
Hageman said at the debate that “we have serious questions” about the election, but stopped short of saying it was stolen or rigged.
Cheney released a campaign ad last month opening with those comments from Hageman. In the ad, Cheney says the country needs to elect “serious leaders” who will take their oath of office seriously and not just say what they think people want to hear.
Multiple audits of state results have found no evidence of widespread fraud that could have changed the outcome of the 2020 presidential election….
A Last Minute GOP Effort to Save Liz Cheney
“A handful of Republican operatives are quietly mounting a last-ditch effort to rescue Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from a Trump-backed primary challenge,” Axios reports.
“The previously unreported effort shows how some Republicans are trying to surreptitiously undercut the former president’s revenge campaign, which has so far claimed the political lives of a significant chunk of GOP critics.”
“Their strategy is two-pronged: Persuade Democrats to cross the aisle and back the Wyoming Republican in this month’s open primary, and dent her Trump-endorsed challenger by portraying her as insufficiently loyal to the former president.”
