See Who Liz Cheney Is Appealing To Now In Order To Save Her Congressional Seat

Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming appears to be in full desperation mode ahead of a GOP primary this summer in which she is down by double digits to Trump-backed challenger and attorney Harriet Hageman.

According to The Blaze, Cheney’s campaign is sending mailers to Democrats in her state informing them about how they can switch parties to support her.

“How do I change my party affiliation to register as a Republican so I can vote for Liz?” the  says.

“To change your party affiliation or to declare a new affiliation, complete the Wyoming Voter Registration Application & Change Form and submit it to your county clerk’s office no later than 14 days before the primary election,” it adds.

“You may also change your party affiliation at your polling place on the day of the primary or general election, or when requesting an absentee ballot,” the mailer says, noting the GOP primary in Wyoming is Aug. 16.

The Blaze adds:

Wyoming Democratic Party chair Joseph Barbuto got a mailer from the incumbent Republican lawmaker’s campaign, according to the  — the outlet reported that Barbuto said that his social media feeds during the last week had been filled with Democrats noting that they had gotten Cheney campaign mailers.

“I haven’t had any Republicans share online or tell me that they received it,” Barbuto noted on Thursday, according to the Times.

“Even if every Democrat in the state switched over,” Barbuto said, “I don’t think it’d be enough to help her.”

Cheney, who turned vehemently against then-President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6 riot and accepted the co-chairmanship of a committee hand-selected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to look into the incident, is way behind her GOP primary opponent, Harriet Hageman, who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

“Just 28 percent of Wyoming Republican voters say they would cast a ballot to reelect Cheney in the 2022 midterms, according to a new poll from Fabrizio, Lee & Associates survey and consulting firm,” the Daily Mail reported earlier this month.

“The survey of 400 likely Republican primary voters in the deep red state shows that 56 percent would vote for Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman over the incumbent if the election were held today,” the report added.

That’s a 28-point deficit to Hageman, a deficit that is likely too steep a hill for Cheney’s reelection bid to successfully climb, according to most political observers.

Adding to Cheney’s troubles, even fewer Wyoming Republicans had a favorable view of her — only 26 percent, with 73 percent viewing her unfavorably.

The outlet added:

Cheney is one of the two Republicans – along with Illinois Representative Adam Kinzinger – serving on the House select committee probing the riot at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

That post on the panel created by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as well as her vote to impeach Trump, cost Cheney favor with her constituents, a censure from the Wyoming GOP and Republican National Committee (RNC), as well as her No. 3 post in the party as House Republican Conference Chairwoman.

Hageman easily won a straw poll which was conducted by the Wyoming Republican State Central Committee in January, garnering 59 votes, according to the Casper Star-Tribune.

Cheney, meanwhile, garnered just 6 votes in a very distant second place.
