Liz Cheney is in a real dark place right now.
Her downward spiral started when she decided to vote with ten other GOP House Reps for Trump’s impeachment and things have only gotten worse for her from there.
Now she’s facing a serious contender for her seat in Wyoming.
CHEYENNE – A right-wing state lawmaker announced his intention Wednesday to run against U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., in the 2022 primary election, a week after the state’s representative made national headlines – and drew some local ire – by voting to impeach former President Donald Trump.
State Sen. Anthony Bouchard, R-Cheyenne, who was first elected to the Legislature in 2016, announced his plan to run in a statementposted on his Facebook page.
“Wyoming was President Trump’s best state both times he ran,” Bouchard said in the statement. “That’s because Wyoming voters are strong conservatives who want our leaders to stand up for America, defend our freedoms, fight for our way of life and always put working people first, as President Trump did.
“Liz Cheney’s long-time opposition to President Trump and her most recent vote for impeachment shows just how out of touch she is with Wyoming,” the statement continues. “Wyoming taxpayers need a voice in Congress who will stand up to Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats and not give them cover. That’s why I’m running for Congress.”
Bouchard’s announcement came a week after Cheney voted to impeach Trump for his role in inciting a riot in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Last week, Cheney told reporters the events of that day were “an attack on the very heart of our republic,” adding that some votes should never be partisan. A spokesman for Cheney declined to comment on Bouchard’s announced bid Wednesday.
Cheney’s long history of opposing Trump has put her head on the chopping block for a long time, but her impeachment vote definitely sent her over the edge.
Apparently she didn’t get the memo on how much support Trump had in Wyoming.
