Liz Cheney Already Faces Primary Challengers After Impeachment Vote

Anthony Bouchard and Marissa Selvig have thrown their hats in the ring...

Just two weeks after House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., voted to impeach former President Donald Trump, at least two Wyoming Republicans have announced their intentions to primary Cheney in the 2022 election cycle.

State Sen. Anthony Bouchard became one of the first challengers this week, blasting Cheney as out-of-touch and anti-Republican.

“Wyoming was President Trump’s best state both times he ran. That’s because Wyoming voters are strong conservatives who want our leaders to stand up for America, defend our freedoms, fight for our way of life and always put working people first as President Trump did. Liz Cheney’s long-time opposition to President Trump and her most recent vote for Impeachment shows just how out-of-touch she is with Wyoming,” he said in a statement.

Business owner Marissa Selvig also filed a statement of candidacy with the Wyoming GOP.

On her campaign website, Selvig says that she is a “strong, practical and creative leader who is passionate about the Constitution, the Federal Budget, and the Liberty to live freely in our beautiful state of Wyoming.”

Cheney is also facing opposition from her own colleagues.

More than half of the House Republican Caucus reportedly agreed to oust Cheney if it came to a vote, a senior GOP aide said this week.

“Rep. Cheney did not consult with the rest of our conference before supporting impeachment,” Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-Mont., tweeted last week. “She failed to abide by the spirit of the Conference rules & is ignoring the preferences of Republican voters.”

Cheney has also lost the confidence of her own state party.

Wyoming Republicans in one county voted unanimously to censure Cheney, arguing that she “violated the trust of her voters, failed to faithfully represent a very large majority of motivated Wyoming voters, and neglected her duty to represent the party and the will of the people who elected her to represent them.”

The Wyoming GOP has also condemned Cheney, demanding that she “explain” her vote at its next meeting.

“By announcing her decision to vote for impeachment Representative Cheney denied President Trump due process; she judged the ‘evidence’ before it was presented and refused to listen to the arguments made,” the party said in a statement last week.
