Harriet Hageman, Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Wyoming, today issued the following statement regarding Sen. Mitt Romney’s vote to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the U.S. Supreme Court. Romney has endorsed Cheney, helped her raise significant amounts of money, and is a close political ally. Hageman is challenging Cheney in the Republican primary in Wyoming in August.
Hageman’s statement is as follows:
“Members of the House don’t get a vote on Supreme Court nominees, but this is as close to a proxy as you’re going to find, since one of Liz Cheney’s closest allies in Washington, D.C. has voted to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson to the highest court. Judge Jackson has shown that she is more than lenient on child sex abusers, does not recognize the natural rights of American citizens as guaranteed by our Bill of Rights, and refused to define a ‘woman’ during the Senate hearings, thereby confirming that she is a left-wing radical and will rule that way as a Justice. We can expect her to legislate from the bench and will no doubt write opinions that are harmful to Wyoming.
“You can tell a lot about a person by the company she keeps. Cheney can have Mitt Romney, and I’ll take my support from President Donald Trump, Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy, Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik, and Sen. Rand Paul. I will be an America First member of Congress and will always act in accordance with the views and values of the people of Wyoming.”
