Primaries in Wyoming and Alaska

Voters in Wyoming decided the fate of former House GOP conference chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as she faced off against challenger Harriet Hageman after her decision to abandon Wyoming values to pursue a crusade against former President Donald Trump in the wake of the events of Jan. 6, 2021.

Cheney aggressively attacked Trump for over a year from her perch on the January 6 Committee in the House, a post to which she was appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi–a Democrat–in an unheard of arrangement that Pelosi engaged in when she kicked actual Republicans off the committee and then House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy withdrew his Party from it altogether. Cheney, who was one of the 10 Republicans to vote to impeach Trump in early 2021 in his second impeachment, made her crusade against the former president the centerpiece of her time in office and even lost her conference chair position in the process. Trump, meanwhile, moved to settle the score with her by endorsing Hageman, a rock-solid conservative who handily defeated the RINO Cheney.

Cheney came nowhere near striking distance of beating Hageman, with the race being called within 30 minutes of the vote tally, per predictions. Needless to say, President Trump, who enthusiastically endorsed Hageman at the outset, cheered Cheney’s loss on his social media site, hoping it marks the beginning of the end to the “Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs,” meaning the January 6 committee.

“Congratulations to Harriet Hageman on her great and very decisive (nearly 40 points difference) WIN in Wyoming,” he said. “This is a wonderful result for America, and a complete rebuke of the Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs.” He continued:

Liz Cheney should be ashamed of herself, the way she acted, and her spiteful, sanctimonious words and actions towards others. Now she can finally disappear into the depths of political oblivion where, I am sure, she will be much happier than she is right now. Thank you WYOMING!

During her concession speech, Liz Cheney compared herself to former President Abraham Lincoln and General Ulysses S. Grant. Cheney said:

The great and original champion of our party, Abraham Lincoln, was defeated in elections for the Senate and House before he won the most important election of all. Lincoln ultimately prevailed. He saved our Union. And he defined our obligations as Americans for all of history.

“It has been said that the long arc of history bends toward justice and freedom. That’s true, but only if we make it bend,” Cheney later added. “Today, our highest duty is to bend the arc of history to preserve our nation and its blessings to ensure that freedom will not perish to protect the very foundations of this constitutional republic.”


Kelly Tshibaka, the former commissioner of the Alaska Department of Administration, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) advanced from Alaska’s open primary Tuesday, setting up a Republican Party proxy war in the ranked-choice general election contest. Murkowski, who voted to convict former President Donald J. Trump on impeachment charges, is backed by establishment Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell. With 69 percent of the votes reported on Wednesday morning, she secured 66,288 votes, or 43.7 percent, according to the Associated Press election results compiled by the New York Times. Trump-backed Tshibaka was right behind Murkowski, with 61,225 votes, or 40.4 percent.

Republicans in Alaska passed rank choice voting in 2020. This confusing system is only being pushed by RINOS and radicals in conservative red states. It allows Democrats to even the playing field when they have no chance of winning. Republicans also passed mail-in voting.
