Liz Cheney just got even more bad news!
Her Trump-backed challenger, Harriet Hageman, has hauled in over $1 million in fundraising since declaring her candidacy.
Harriet Hageman, the leading Republican candidate challenging Rep. Liz Cheney as Wyoming’s at-large member of the House runs for re-election this year, reports that she’s for Congress less than five months ago.
Hageman brought in roughly $745,000 from her campaign launch on Sept. 9 through the end of 2021, according to figures shared first with Fox News on Monday, with over a quarter-million raised since the beginning of the new year.
The Wyoming native who’s backed by former President Trump as she runs to oust Cheney, also reported bringing in $443,460 during the October-December fourth quarter of fundraising. And Hageman, a conservative lawyer who’s fought for water, land and property rights, spotlighted that more than half of her funds came from within Wyoming and that her campaign had $381,163 cash on hand at the end of 2021.
This comes after a straw poll found Harriet Hageman dominating Liz Cheney.
Harriet Hageman, the Donald Trump-endorsed candidate seeking to unseat Rep. Liz Cheney, won big Saturday in a straw poll of House candidates held by the Wyoming Republican State Central Committee.
The secret ballot of party activists awarded Hageman 59 votes, Cheney six, state Sen. Anthony Bouchard, R-Cheyenne, two and Denton Knapp one. The vote comes eight months before the GOP primary.
“I think it’s a good sign. It’s not an endorsement, but these are the county activists” Hageman told the Star-Tribune after the vote.
The state party itself is not statutorily allowed to endorse a candidate in the primary.
The state central committee consists of three representatives from each county and members of the state party, for a total of 74 votes. Only 71, including three of Hageman’s family members, voted Saturday. The bearing of the vote on the outcome of the August primary is uncertain: There are 196,179 registered Republican voters in Wyoming as of January.
