Harriet Hageman, Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Wyoming, today announced that she raised over $100,000 per week since she declared her candidacy on September 9, 2021, and has attracted the strong support of Wyoming voters and former allies of her opponent, Rep. Liz Cheney. Hageman has taken in over $300,000 in the three weeks since she announced her candidacy and before the end of the 3rd quarter reporting period (with her report due by October 15, 2021).
“I am humbled, honored and enthused by the outpouring of support from so many people who agree that, sadly enough, Wyoming is currently without effective representation in the U.S. House of Representatives and who have rallied around my campaign,” Hageman said. “We know that Liz Cheney will have more money than she can spend, raised by Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia special interests, establishment politicians, and Democrats who find her to be a useful tool. She’s devoting all of her energy to attacking former President Donald Trump, while I’m concentrating on what the people of Wyoming actually care about: fighting off government overreach, protecting our constitutional rights, and giving voice to the people of our great state.”
Hageman, who has been endorsed by President Trump, received donations from voters throughout Wyoming, including several who previously backed Cheney. These include Maggie Scarlett, co-chair of Cheney’s 2014 Senate campaign and longtime Republican donor, who gave to both Trump Victory and Cheney in the 2020 cycle, and Lynn Friess, a former Cheney donor and widow of longtime GOP supporter Foster Friess.
Other prominent figures in Wyoming politics supporting Hageman include: major GOP donor Timothy Mellon and Bill Cubin, son of former U.S. Rep. Barbara Cubin. In addition, Marti Halverson (former Wyoming State Representative and Wyoming Republican National Committeewoman), and Carleen and Dan Brophy (significant GOP donors and supporters of Trump Victory and many state and national conservatives), also donated to Hageman. Blair and Todd Maus, owners of Deering Wine, also gave to Hageman.
Hageman is a fourth generation Wyomingite who was raised on her family ranch outside of Fort Laramie, where she learned the value of hard work, honesty, and fighting for what she believes. Once described as one of the “fiercest and most effective opponents” of the Clinton Administration, Hageman knows that the hardworking men and women of Wyoming deserve a leader who shares their values and will not bow down to the pressures of the liberal left as soon as the road gets a little rough. She is a practicing attorney and earned her B.S. in Business Management and her Law Degree from the University of Wyoming.
In her professional career, Hageman has fought to protect Wyoming against oppressive and illegal government regulation and worked to preserve private property and water rights. She defeated the Clinton administration in a battle over access to forest lands involving the illegal Roadless Rule. And she has taken on the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to oppose mandates and usurpation of the rights of farmers and ranchers. She is also a former Republican National Committeewoman for Wyoming.
