Anti-Trump Rep. Liz Cheney is becoming even more well-known in her state as its lone congressional representative, however, there’s nothing good about it.

A group called Wyoming Values PAC that is aligned with her GOP primary opponent, Trump-backed Harriet Hageman, is plastering the state with anti-Cheney billboards as the campaigns shift into high gear.

Breitbart News reports:

The billboards urge voters to “Ditch Liz! Vote for Hageman” and appear in Casper, Rawlins, Cheyenne, and Laramie. The group, led by Republican strategists Andy Surabian and James Blair, plans to leave the billboards up until the state’s primary election day, or Tuesday, August 16.

“Wyoming Values will continue to aggressively expose Liz Cheney as the Pelosi puppet she truly is from now until election day,” Surabian said in a statement.

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

Hageman, a Wyoming lawyer, received the coveted endorsement of former President Donald Trump formally in September.

“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,” Trump continued.

“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 [President Joe] Biden has already given up),” he added.

“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!” the former president concluded.

Hageman herself has ramped up her criticism of Cheney as well, even going after Cheney’s husband over ties to China.

The law firm Cheney’s husband, Philip Perry, works for has deep financial ties to Chinese firms, according to a report in February by Just The News.

“This is exactly the problem with Washington, D.C.,” Hageman said on the “John Solomon Reports” podcast.

“What do we find out when we dig a little bit deeper” is that “her husband and she are personally, financially benefiting from working for China and Kazakhstan and Belarus and Saudi Arabia,” Hageman said, according to the outlet.

“He has a choice, he can either work with his firm and take the stand that his wife is apparently advocating publicly, and say, ‘We’re not going to represent countries or companies that, number one have problems with human rights abuses and number two, who are really kind of in a soft war with the United States.’ Or you can go to another law firm,” said Hageman. “Have some integrity.”

In September, Hageman told Just the News that Cheney appears to be more concerned about U.S. military bases in Virginia and elsewhere than she does about Wyoming’s energy and natural resources, as indicated by Cheney’s decision earlier this year to drop her assignment on the House Natural Resources Committee.

There, she had served since 2017, but now she spends more time with the House Armed Services Committee and being the co-chair of the partisan Jan. 6 Committee, where she joins another Trump critic, retiring Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.

“The fact is that Liz Cheney broke from Wyoming, well, over a year ago,” Hageman said in an interview with the John Solomon Reports podcast. “We believe very strongly in Wyoming in the America first agenda, the Wyoming first agenda, energy independence, and being able to … manage and use our natural resources.

“We do not have a representative on the Natural Resource Committee, because Liz Cheney chose to go on the Armed Services Committee. And while that may benefit Virginia, it doesn’t do a doggone thing for the state of Wyoming,” Hageman noted further.

“Wyoming had no representative on that committee, because Liz Cheney chose not to serve on the all-important natural resource committee because she wanted to be on a committee that would benefit Virginia where she lives,” she added.
