Buh-Bye, Liz Cheney

It’s finally primary day in Wyoming. This is finally the day that we get to say “Buh-bye” to Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY).

The polls have had Cheney down by as much as 30 points, and she’s quite likely to lose. She’s so desperate, that she’s been appealing to Democrats to vote for her.

But she came out to vote in Jackson, Wyoming, along with her father, former Vice-President Dick Cheney.

So, she was talking to people in line? Wonder if she’s violating their electioneering laws, because that sure looks like they’re right next to a polling place.

Check out this opportunity for fawning coverage from CBS News.

Cheney said that no matter what the outcome of the vote was in the primary, this would be the “beginning of a battle” that was going to go on. “We’re facing a moment where our democracy really is under attack and under threat.”

Yes, there has been a threat to our Republic; Cheney threw in with the Democrats who have been behind that threat. But she’s about to be thrown out, so that threat’s about to be reduced a little.

But notice the delusional little smile she had there at the end. She thinks that this is going to be her platform to run for president. She’s so clueless, she has no idea that she would have no real constituency. I think she truly thinks this is her springboard.

I wanted to make one more note to my earlier report from Wyoming columnist Bill Sniffin. He told Salem Media radio host Mark Davis some concerns about factors that might work in her favor, including crossover votes from Democrats.

Republican Scott Presler has been working across the country to get people to register as Republicans. He has made an observation about the change in the Democratic registrations in Wyoming since Jan. 2022 — that the number has dropped by 9,000 since then.

I wouldn’t make the conclusion that necessarily means 9,000 are switching, although the numbers certainly line up. Given Joe Biden, some may just have given up on being Democrats — a completely reasonable conclusion to make over the past several months. Bill Sniffin had made a prediction of about 20,000 crossovers between Democrats and independents. So that said, in a low vote count primary (meaning the winner is probably going to be around 60-70,000 votes), 9,000 seems a big number.

But others in Wyoming don’t think it’s going to make that much difference.

“We see some movement from registered Democrat to registered Republican,” Wyoming Democratic Party communications director David Martin told The Epoch Times regarding the past few months. “But we don’t believe it will influence the GOP (primary) as much as people think it will.”

We’ll have to see how it shakes out — it does look like there is some crossover. But as I said, I think you can’t discount how angry Wyoming Republicans are at Liz Cheney, and that’s going to bring them out in droves as well; the math is more on their side. So, I do think we’re in pretty reasonable shape to say “buh-bye” to Liz Cheney, and hello to Harriet Hageman.
