Harriet Hageman, Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Wyoming, today issued the following statement regarding Rep. Liz Cheney’s speech at the Reagan Library on the topic of the future of the Republican Party:
“Maybe she didn’t learn the definition of irony at the Virginia high school she attended, but Liz Cheney is the last one who should be giving lectures about the future of the Republican Party when she is singlehandedly trying to burn it to the ground. Cheney is using Wyoming’s only House seat to further her own personal war on President Trump, while helping Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats achieve their own political goals at the same time. She’s doing more to help the future of the Democratic Party than anything else.
“We sent Liz Cheney to Congress to represent Wyoming, not to help Pelosi distract voters’ attention away from the colossal failures of the Biden administration. Inflation is sky high, gas prices set new records every day, our southern border is in crisis, deadly drugs are flooding our cities and towns, and the attacks on Wyoming’s resource industries continue unabated. She ought to be more concerned with the future of Wyoming than anything else, but she’s quite obviously not.
“Thankfully, we have a debate Thursday night – a rare appearance in Wyoming from our congresswoman – where she will have to defend herself and her inaction on the issues most important to us. Wyoming is fed up with Liz Cheney, and in the debate, voters will be reminded of why that is.”
