Anti-Trump Rep. Liz Cheney is becoming even more well-known in her state as its lone congressional representative, but not in a good way.
A group called Wyoming Values PAC that is aligned with her GOP primary opponent, Trump-backed Harriet Hageman, is plastering anti-Cheney billboards all around the state as the campaigns shift into high gear.
Breitbart News reports:
The billboards urge voters to “Ditch Liz! Vote for Hageman” and appear in Casper, Rawlins, Cheyenne, and Laramie. The group, led by Republican strategists Andy Surabian and James Blair, plans to leave the billboards up until the state’s primary election day, or Tuesday, August 16.
“Wyoming Values will continue to aggressively expose Liz Cheney as the Pelosi puppet she truly is from now until election day,” Surabian said in a statement.
“While Liz Cheney sold Wyoming out to the swamp, Harriet Hageman will fight for the conservative values [Wyoming residents] care about and we’re confident that she will defeat Cheney in August,” he added.
Former President Donald Trump formally endorsed Hageman, a Wyoming lawyer, in September.
“Harriet is a fourth-generation daughter of Wyoming, a very successful attorney, and has the support and respect of a truly great U.S. Senator, Wyoming’s own Cynthia Lummis,” Trump continued.
“Harriet Hageman adores the Great State of Wyoming, is strong on Crime and Borders, powerfully supports the Second Amendment, loves our Military and our Vets, and will fight for Election Integrity and Energy Independence (which [President Joe] Biden has already given up),” he added.
“Unlike RINO Liz Cheney, Harriet is all in for America First. Harriet has my Complete and Total Endorsement in replacing the Democrats number one provider of sound bites, Liz Cheney. Make America Great Again!” the former president concluded.
Hageman herself has also gone after the husband of Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, for alleged China ties.
The law firm Cheney’s husband, Philip Perry, works for has deep financial ties to Chinese firms, according to a report in February by Just The News.
“This is exactly the problem with Washington, D.C.,” Hageman said on the “John Solomon Reports” podcast.
“What do we find out when we dig a little bit deeper” is that “her husband and she are personally, financially benefiting from working for China and Kazakhstan and Belarus and Saudi Arabia,” Hageman said, according to the outlet.
“He has a choice, he can either work with his firm and take the stand that his wife is apparently advocating publicly, and say, ‘We’re not going to represent countries or companies that, number one have problems with human rights abuses and number two, who are really kind of in a soft war with the United States.’ Or you can go to another law firm,” said Hageman. “Have some integrity.”
