Reward For Opposing Trump: Liz Cheney Under Fire From Voters in Her State

Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) involvement in the January 6 panel is prompting tremendous hostility from residents in her home state of Wyoming, far from Washington, D.C.

CNN spoke with constituents of the congresswoman in Cheyenne, Wyoming, at the Frontier Days fair about their feelings about Cheney’s current behavior. Cheney, the vice head of the House review panel investigating the January 6 incident, has acquired quite a few adversaries in the GOP with her constant condemnation of erstwhile President Donald Trump and her senseless push to impeach him.

“Are you planning to vote for Liz Cheney?” CNN’s Randi Kaye questioned Wyoming resident Sharon Tuggle, who said, “Hell no.”

“She’s done us dirty,” Tuggle remarked, indicating to Kaye that Cheney had lost her support due to her position on the January 6th committee. “Look at how she’s done with Trump.”

“She is supposed to be supporting him,” stated Tuggle. “She is a Republican, for crying out loud.”

“Personally, I think she’s had three too many,” another respondent told Kaye, posing the question if Cheney should seek another term. Another voter interviewed by CNN said that she thinks Cheney’s work on the January 6th committee is plain repulsive.

“It’s all a scam. It’s all propaganda. It has nothing to do with anything. It’s a witch hunt,” stated Wyoming electorate Andrew Kahler. Kaye proposed to the Wyoming electorate Brett Kupec. “She says she’s defending what’s important to people here in Wyoming, upholding the rule of law and defending the constitution.”

“If that was the rule of law, why doesn’t he have a defense team in that courtroom?” Kupec replied. “That ain’t law and order. A kangaroo court is what you’re seeing here. In Wyoming, it’s not done that way.”

“A shame” was how one voter described Cheney.

As a result, they thought Cheney is out of touch with Wyoming’s residents, focused on the committee, and fighting with Trump. According to one male voter, she has lost touch with the ideals of the people and no longer knows what her electorate wants in this area.

Another woman chimed in, saying, “I don’t feel like she supports her people here in Wyoming anymore. That which she’s voting for does not accurately reflect the sentiments of Wyoming residents.”

Cheney’s Republican competitor, Harriet Hageman, has been endorsed by President Trump. And according to a Mason-Dixon poll conducted for the Casper Star-Tribune in July.

At the end of the Wyoming Primary Debate in June, the congresswoman’s released claims made by Cheney.

“In Wyoming, we ride for the brand, and our brand is the United States Constitution,” she said. “So, I’m going to ask people for their vote. I’m going to work hard to earn that vote. But people need to know something about me. I will never put my party above my duty to the country. I will never put party above my duty to the Constitution. I swore an oath under God and I will abide by that oath. I won’t say something that I know is wrong simply to earn the votes of people to earn political support.”

“We need to recognize that if we are not faithful to the Constitution, if we embrace lies, if we embrace the lies of Donald Trump, if we tell the people of Wyoming something is not true, we will soon find ourselves without the structure, the basis and the framework of our Constitutional Republic,” she continued.

Her statement might fool some, but it definitely isn’t fooling us. This is because if you can’t stay loyal to your fellow republican, how can you stay true to your ideals?
