Several U.S. media outlets reported on Tuesday about the defeat of Donald Trump’s top Republican opponent in the party’s Wyoming primary.
US-elected Liz Cheney, the anti-Trump Republican press secretary, suffered a crushing defeat Tuesday in her primaries in Wyoming, in the western central part of the country, bolstering the former president’s influence on his left.
The 56-year-old MP has been one of the Republican billionaire’s main irritants ever since she dared to join a parliamentary committee investigating his role in the January 6, 2021 Capitol attack. He put all his weight on supporting his rival Harriet. Hageman, a 59-year-old lawyer with whom he campaigned in late May, won that Republican primary on Tuesday.
Thus, the Republican candidacy in the elections to the House of Representatives will go to the protégé of Donald Trump, which will further strengthen the influence of the former White House resident on the Republican Party, despite the numerous investigations to which it is subject. As if, due to accumulation, all these affairs no longer held him.
In Wyoming, a state that voted more than 70% for Donald Trump in the last presidential election, nominee Harriet Hageman particularly supports the Trump clan’s theory that the 2020 election was “stolen” from the country. otherwise.
She vows to ‘do whatever it takes’ to make sure Trump never becomes president again
For her part, Liz Cheney, who voted for the dismissal that Donald Trump finally avoided, has been trying for more than a year to debunk this thesis, which is still held by millions of Trumpists.
As she leads an investigation into Donald Trump and his entourage, the elected official has been subjected to a series of death threats and no longer travels unaccompanied by the police. In her state, which first granted women the right to vote in 1869, an elected official was forced to run a phantom campaign of sorts, with no campaign rallies or public gatherings.
Rumors now circulate about her presidential ambitions in the 2024 election, in which she could run as an independent candidate if needed. Following the announcement of his defeat by several American media outlets, Liz Cheney vowed to “do everything” to ensure that Trump is never president again.
