Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) may be counting down the days until she leaves office.
A local activist group conducted a straw poll vote to see who would win the GOP primary.
Trump-backed Harriet Hageman came out on top.
Sign of the Future
Now, before anyone gets excited, realize this was only a small group.
What is really good news, however, is that Cheney received almost no support.
If this poll holds anywhere close to what happened here, Cheney will get obliterated in the primary.
The poll was conducted by the Wyoming Republican State Central Committee.
Of the 71 votes reportedly cast, Cheney won a mere six, with State Senator Bouchard getting two votes and Denton Knapp getting one vote.
Hageman walked away with 59 (two votes are unaccounted for, and three members did not vote).
In addition to the domination by Hageman, it was a bit of a surprise to see Bouchard get so little traction.
Before Hageman announced, Bouchard was considered her biggest threat, and he barely registered on the radar.
When Cheney spokesperson Jeremy Adler was informed of the results of the poll, he more or less laughed it off.
He stated, “The only elections that matter are in August and November.”
I hardly expect the primary to be that much of a cakewalk for Hageman, but I am generally surprised at the overall lack of support for Cheney.
Also, remember, Cheney will have a lot of money flooding into her campaign by Democrats and out of state donors that despise Trump, therefore, they will fight Hageman with everything they have.
This is a good sign, however, and one that Cheney, regardless of what her spokesman says, will take note of.
Do you think Cheney will lose the GOP primary in August?
