A conservative group in Wyoming is done with Rep. Liz Cheney and working to get her removed from Congress in the Republican primary election.

The group, Wyoming Values PAC, is placing billboards all across the state “Ditch Liz! Vote for Hageman,” in support of Rep. Cheney’s opponent Harriet Hageman, who is supported by former President Donald Trump, Breitbart News reported.

“Wyoming Values will continue to aggressively expose Liz Cheney as the Pelosi puppet she truly is from now until election day,” the group’s leader Andy Surabian said.

“While Liz Cheney sold Wyoming out to the swamp, Harriet Hageman will fight for the conservative values Wyomings care about and we’re confident that she will defeat Cheney in August,” he said.

The former president gave his endorsement to Rep. Cheney’s challenger in September.

“I strongly endorse Republican House of Representatives Candidate Harriet Hageman from Wyoming who is running against warmonger and disloyal Republican, Liz Cheney. Harriet is a fourth-generation daughter of Wyoming, a very successful attorney, and has the support and respect of a truly great U.S. Senator, Wyoming’s own Cynthia Lummis. Harriet Hageman adores the Great State of Wyoming, is strong on Crime and Borders, powerfully supports the Second Amendment, loves our Military and our Vets, and will fight for Election Integrity and Energy Independence (which Biden has already given up). Unlike RINO Liz Cheney, Harriet is all in for America First. Harriet has my Complete and Total Endorsement in replacing the Democrats number one provider of sound bites, Liz Cheney. Make America Great Again!” he said.

In February polls showed Cheney down double-digits in her primary against Harriet Hageman, a GOP activist who is endorsed by Donald Trump.

“Cheney, the panel’s vice chair who broke with her party to help lead the committee, is fighting for her political life as Republicans in Wyoming and Washington seethe over her criticism of former President Donald Trump and other Republicans over the insurrection. She will face off in an August primary against attorney Harriet Hageman, who is backed by Trump and his allies,” The Hill reported.

“The race is already anticipated to be among the most contentious in the nation, with Trump vowing to go to war to expel his chief intraparty dissident. And as the Jan. 6 committee’s probe ramps up – with subpoenas inching closer to the former president’s inner circle – so too will Wyoming’s already incendiary primary pitting Cheney against the GOP’s de facto leader,” the report added.

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy has endorsed Cheney’s GOP challenger, saying in a statement he will back Hageman in the Republican primary in Wyoming set for August.

“I am proud to endorse Harriet Hageman for Congress,” McCarthy said. “The most successful Representatives in Congress focus on the needs of their constituents, and throughout her career, Harriet has championed America’s natural resources and helped the people of Wyoming reject burdensome and onerous government overreach.”

Many others see the writing on the wall.

“I think that the race itself will be really ugly,” said former Campbell County Commissioner Mark Christensen. “I would say probably in the next month or two we’re going to see things get much more aggressive out here.”

“I certainly think that’s gonna hurt her, especially here in Wyoming where you’ve got an extremely conservative base,” said GOP state Rep. Landon Brown, a Cheney ally. “I think this will probably be the bloodiest race in Wyoming’s history.”

In a SoCo Strategies poll conducted to gauge the impact of Trump endorsements, Cheney is 18-points behind Trump-backed Hageman.

The new survey of Republican voters found that Hageman leads Cheney, 38%-18%.

The independent survey — not done for Cheney or Hageman — was included in a handful of other state results showing that a Trump endorsement can be a game-changer.

The endangered RINO lawmaker also recently came under fire after she chose to mingle with reporters and media executives over attending an annual grassroots event.

Wyoming Republicans held a major fundraiser, which has been labeled as the “biggest night of the year” for the area’s Republicans.
