It has been an extremely rough go for Liz Cheney lately. Just last week, we reported that it is clear there is no love lost between Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo) and former President Donald Trump (R). Last week Cheney called Trump a “dangerous and irrational man,” adding, “at this moment, we are confronting a domestic threat that we have never faced before. And that is a former president who is attempting to unravel the foundations of our Constitutional Republic.” Then, the former President fired back. Utilizing his growing Social Media platform, Truth Social, Trump called Cheney a “despicable human being.”

It is now being reported that
A top GOP senator is writing Rep. Liz Cheney’s political obituary ahead of next month’s Republican primary, and interestingly, he just happens to be from her home state of Wyoming.
Sen. John Barrasso told Fox News on Sunday that Cheney’s likely to lose to Trump-backed Harriet Hageman because there are “not enough Democrats” to help her.
Barrasso gave his assessment on “Fox News Sunday” with host Mike Emanuel in regard to Cheney’s strong views about the events of January 6, 2021, and her role as co-chair of the House select committee chosen by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to look into the incident. Republicans and other outside observers have decried the committee as overtly political and not really interested in finding the truth.
“Wyoming politics is very personal. It’s face-to-face. It’s town to town,” Barrasso said. “The travel that I have done around the state, I think she has a lot of work to do if she hopes to win the primary.”
Cheney stoked anger in her deep-red state that then-President Donald Trump won with 70 percent of the ballot after she voted with Democrats to impeach him following the Jan. 6 incident at the U.S. Capitol Building.
In her state, she has never recovered, according to surveys.
“There’s really not that many Democrats out there,” Barrasso told Emanuel. “Even the chairman of the Democratic Party said there are not enough Democrats to do that.”
Last month, Cheney’s campaign sent 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 mailer 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.
