Former President Donald Trump celebrated Harriet Hagemans victory over Rep. Liz Cheney in the Wyoming Republican congressional primary.
Cheney came nowhere near striking distance of beating Hageman, with the race being called within 30 minutes of the vote tally, per predictions. Around this writing, Hageman holds a commanding lead by 0ver 30 points with just 49 percent of the vote counted.
Obviously, President Trump, who enthusiastically endorsed Hageman first, cheered Cheneys loss on his social media marketing site, hoping it marks the start of the finish to the Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs, meaning the January 6 committee.
Congratulations to Harriet Hageman on her behalf great and incredibly decisive WIN in Wyoming, he said. It is a wonderful result for America, and a whole rebuke of the Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs. He continued:
Liz Cheney ought to be ashamed of herself, just how she acted, and her spiteful, sanctimonious words and actions towards others. Now she can finally disappear in to the depths of political oblivion where, I am certain, she’ll be notably happier than she actually is right now. Many thanks WYOMING!
During her concession speech, Liz Cheney compared herself to former President Abraham Lincoln and General Ulysses S. Grant.Cheney said:
The fantastic and original champion of our party, Abraham Lincoln, was defeated in elections for the Senate and House before he won the most crucial election of most. Lincoln ultimately prevailed. He saved our Union. And he defined our obligations as Americans for several of history.
It’s been said that the long arc of history bends toward justice and freedom. Thats true, but only when we ensure it is bend, Cheney later added. Today, our highest duty would be to bend the arc of history to preserve our nation and its own blessings to make sure that freedom won’t perish to safeguard the foundations of the constitutional republic.
