Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) is facing a tough primary after she has faced intense criticism from President Trump and the Republican Party for voting to impeach Trump and playing a pivotal role in the January 6th Committee.
Liz has resorted to increasingly desperate measures as she attempts to hang on to her seat, including attempting to get Wyoming Democrats in her district to switch parties and vote for her.
She currently trails her primary opponent, Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman by as much as 22%.
A Casper Star-Tribune poll showed Hageman with 52% while Cheney only had 30% support from Republicans in her own district.
With less than two weeks to go before the Wyoming primary, Cheney’s father, RINO, and Ex-Vice President Dick Cheney starred in a video advertisement promoting Liz and attacking President Trump.
Dick Cheney called Trump a “coward” and said he poses a greater threat to our Republic than anyone in history.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney assailed ex-President Donald Trump as a “coward” and a prime threat to the United States in a new campaign ad for his daughter, Rep. Liz Cheney, days before her Republican primary election in Wyoming.
“In our nation’s 246-year history, there has never been an individual who has posed a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump,” the elder Cheney said in a straight-to-camera ad, which was shared online Thursday afternoon.
“He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him,” said Cheney, 81, who served for eight years as vice president in the George W. Bush administration.
“He is a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters,” Cheney said. “He lost his election and he lost big. I know it, he knows it, and deep down, I think most Republicans know it.”
