Trump-endorsed congressional candidate Harriet Hageman explained how she plans to defeat incumbent Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney in an interview this week with RSBN.
When asked what the top priorities are for voters in Wyoming, Hageman explained, “The people of Wyoming are very interested in having people who represent them, will come and talk to them, will answer to them, answer questions, and explain and address what’s going on in Washington D.C.”
Hageman added that inflation, the energy crisis, the southern border, the failed policies of the Biden administration, and global conflict are the top priorities of voters in the state of Wyoming. Offering an alternative to the failure of the Biden administration, Hageman stated, “We believe in the America First agenda.”
Traveling thousands of miles over the past year as she campaigns throughout the state, Hageman believes her primary campaign advantage is that she represents the people of Wyoming while Cheney refuses to relate to them.
She explained, “My major advantage over my opponent is the fact that Liz Cheney isn’t from Wyoming, doesn’t come to Wyoming, hasn’t been accountable to Wyoming, and isn’t carrying out the agenda that the people in Wyoming want.”
In November, the Wyoming Republican Party voted to no longer recognize Cheney as a member of the Republican Party. This vote came after Cheney, a member of the Jan. 6 committee, voted to impeach Trump for his alleged incitement of the Jan. 6 Capitol riots. Additionally, in February, the Republican National Committee (RNC) voted to formally censure Cheney for her involvement in the Jan. 6 committee, further emphasizing her split from the Republican Party.
“The people of Wyoming are fed up with her,” said Hageman. She described Cheney’s involvement with the Jan. 6 committee as “an absolute betrayal of the state of Wyoming,” adding, “that’s what I hear in every single place that I go.”
Hageman’s campaign offers an alternative for the citizens of Wyoming. Her campaign centers around issues that directly relate to the people of Wyoming, while Cheney continues to aid Democrats in their assault on the MAGA movement in America.
The major difference Hageman described between herself and Liz Cheney is that her opponent represents the interests of the establishment, while she represents the interests of the people. “I’m Wyoming; she’s Virginia,” she concluded.
Trump gave Hageman his endorsement in September, saying, “I strongly endorse Republican House of Representatives Candidate Harriet Hageman from Wyoming who is running against warmonger and disloyal Republican, Liz Cheney.”
