On Tuesdays broadcast of the Fox News Channels Ingraham Angle, Wyoming Congressional candidateHarriet Hageman (R) stated that her opponent Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) lost in large part because Shes not concentrating on Wyoming. Shes not concentrating on our issues. Shes still concentrating on an obsession [with] President Trump. And that inflation, illegal immigration, and energy were the most crucial issues to voters, not the former President.
Hageman said that while she didnt have the opportunity to pay attention to Cheneys speech, It doesnt surprise me that she’d revert to those same exact talking points, because thats really, in large part, what got her defeated. Shes not concentrating on Wyoming. Shes not concentrating on our issues. Shes still concentrating on an obsession [with] President Trump.
Host Laura Ingraham then said that whenever she was in Wyoming, things that I heard frequently from folks there have been inability to obtain workers, the expense of fuel, and the expense of just basic living, rent, and food. Nobody was concentrating on Trump. I dont think anyone I talked to that wasnt top of mind.
Hageman responded, No. Inflation, illegal immigration, and protection of our energy jobs will be the issues that will be the most significant to Wyoming, and accountability. We actually expect our representatives to represent our interests.
