Liz Cheney made a last-minute desperate move and it failed.
She begged Democrat voters to pull the handle for her, and she was still doubled in early returns.
It was so bad, Cheney gave a concession speech with only 54 percent of the vote counted and Hageman having already lapped her.
She will still have to finish out her term, but her primary race loss means her days as a congresswoman are over.
As of this writing, Cheney had about 32,000 votes, with some Demcorats registering as Republicans to help her, but it was not nearly enough.
Hageman had doubled her at this point, winning 64,000 votes.
Let me put it this way… if every voter from both parties that voted in the primary and that did not vote for Hageman and voted for Cheney, Cheney still would have lost, which does not bode well for Hageman’s general election opponent.
Time to Go
It was only yesterday that I wrote a report literally calling Cheney a Democrat.
The history of her family, and the business relationships of her husband… it is the typical background of a Democrat elite.
Now she wants people to change parties to save here, and, believe me, there will probably be a rush of people that will do that to make this race far tighter than it should be.
Hageman’s campaign manager Carly Miller jumped all over this.
Miller stated, “When Liz Cheney’s only hope is to appeal to Democrats to raid a Republican primary, you know she has gone all the way over to Nancy Pelosi’s side.
“Wyoming is fed up with Cheney, and it’s too late for any election shenanigans to save her.”
Cheney has received virtually no money from Wyoming voters during this campaign.
Instead, it has been people like Soros, major out-of-state PACs, and Democrats.
Bush and Karl Rove have also chipped in, with Cheney getting about $1 million from Bush supporters in Texas.
I said earlier in the way there was no legitimate way that Cheney would win, and that prediction came true.
Go away, Liz… the people have spoken!
Update 12:01 a.m. CDT: With 93 percent of the vote tallied: Hageman 63%, Cheney 29%.
