Former President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he will support a Wyoming attorney’s bid to unseat GOP Rep. Liz Cheney.
In a statement, Trump endorsed Harriet Hageman, stepped down from representing Wyoming on the Republican National Committee in advance of the announcement. Hageman previously ran for governor in 2018, finishing third in the Republican primary, and has donated to Cheney’s campaigns.
“Unlike RINO Liz Cheney, Harriet is all in for America First,” Trump said in an emailed statement. “Harriet has my Complete and Total Endorsement in replacing the Democrats number one provider of sound bites, Liz Cheney. Make America Great Again!”
Cheney replied to the announcement through tweet, with a screenshot of Trump’s statement and the message “Here’s a sound bite for you: Bring it.”
