Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has lost her primary handily to Harriet Hageman. It was such a mammoth victory, that the Decision Desk was able to call it within 27 minutes of the polls closing.
Here’s what Dave Wasserman of Cook Political Report is saying about his predictions for the final numbers. He’s thinking it indeed might be between 30-35 points, which is even more than the polling numbers.
That truly says something about the anger in Wyoming at how Cheney abandoned them — not caring what they thought or what they wanted in her obsession over her hatred of Donald Trump. Harriet Hageman meanwhile spoke to the state about their own needs. That’s the bottom line right there.
Cheney was clueless throughout her campaign, so it stood to reason that in her final concession speech, she would continue that clueless streak. She even compared herself to Abraham Lincoln. No, seriously, she did.
But she wasn’t finished yet. She went on to compare herself to Ulysses Grant. This is sad, hilarious, and ridiculous all at the same time.
Then, after all that prologue, did she declare that she was running for president in 2024? Did she make any concrete statement about her plans, as it was suggested she might? Nope. It was all just delusion and stroking her self-importance. That’s what happens when you live in Virginia and in a liberal media/Twitter bubble. She thinks that the liberal media stroking equates to reality. But Harriet Hageman and people who are truly from Wyoming showed her in a big way what was what.
Now, I’m sure that she will get offers to be on CNN, MSNBC, or The View. That would seem to be her next move — to be with those to whom she’s now attached herself.
There’s no doubt that the folks in Wyoming are celebrating that they may now get a representative who can see them and not just her obsessions. This is also a huge victory for President Donald Trump and there’s celebrating in Trump land tonight.
