Liz Cheney Loses Wyoming Primary But Vows to Keep Trump From the White House

Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney lost her primary by a wide margin Tuesday while vowing she would do everything in her power to keep Trump from returning to the White House.

“I’m a conservative Republican,” she said. “I believe deeply in the principles and the ideals on which my party was founded. … But I love my country more.”

Harriet Hageman, a lawyer with Trump’s endorsement, ousted Cheney, clinching the GOP nomination for deep-red Wyoming’s only House seat.

With more than 99 percent of the vote tallied, Hageman had about 66 percent to Cheney’s nearly 29 percent.

In a Wednesday morning interview, Cheney said running for president in 2024 is “something I’m thinking about,” and it’s a decision she will make “in the coming months.”

The defeat of a Republican from a once-powerful political family with deep ties to the Bush-era party establishment that was dominant two decades ago underlined the shift in the GOP, which is now largely led by officials and candidates prioritizing loyalty to Trump.
