Former President Donald Trump endorsed Harriet Hageman on Thursday in her bid against Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), immediately after she announced her run for the seat.
“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,” Trump wrote in a statement to reporters. “Make America Great Again!”
“Like many Wyomingites, I supported Liz Cheney when she ran for Congress,” Hageman said in announcing her run. “But then she betrayed Wyoming, she betrayed this country, and she betrayed me.”
Trump had previously indicated that he wasn’t in favor of any of the several other candidates that had been running for Cheney’s spot.
Hageman is a property rights attorney and a fourth generation “daughter” of Wyoming.
