Wyoming Republicans Vote to Block Liz Cheney from Claiming to Belong to the State Party
The Wyoming Republican Party voted Saturday to remove Representative Liz Cheney from their party and now say the Pelosi Republican can no longer claim to be a Wyoming Republican
“The 31-29 vote Saturday in Buffalo, Wyoming, by the state party central committee followed votes by local GOP officials in about one-third of Wyoming’s 23 counties to no longer recognize Cheney as a Republican,” the Associated Press reported.
Cheney slapped back at the party calling the announcement “laughable.” She went on to insist that the Wyoming GOP are being “held hostage to the lies of a dangerous and irrational man,” meaning Donald Trump.
Cheney seems to be facing a tough re-election fight against Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman, an attorney from Cheyenne.
“Liz Cheney stopped recognizing what Wyomingites care about a long time ago. When she launched her war against President Trump, she completely broke with where we are as a state,” Hageman told the Casper Star-Tribune.
Cheney decided to be the anti-Trump Republican in Congress some time ago and most recently signed on to be one of the traitor “Republicans” to join the Democrat’s fake Jan. 6 committee investigation.
Cheney, the daughter of former George W. Bush Vice President Dick Cheney, also joined Democrats in voting to hold former Trump adviser Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify before the corrupt Jan. 6 committee.
