Posted on 09/10/2021 11:50:24 AM PDT by cotton1706
After former President Donald Trump endorsed Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman’s primary challenge against his top congressional Republican nemesis Rep. Liz Cheney, the rest of the candidates in the crowded primary field faced immediate pressure to end their campaigns and back his pick.
But while two candidates have dropped out in light of the endorsement, at least four Cheney challengers say that they intend to stay in the race.
The former president had long urged “JUST ONE CANDIDATE” to run against Cheney. The risk if candidates stay in the race is that the anti-Cheney field could split the vote , and Cheney could win the primary with only a plurality, all but cementing her reelection in the reliably Republican state.
That worry prompted a question to candidates at a June forum about whether they would drop out of the race if they did not lead the anti-Cheney field come May 2022, when candidates can file with the state to declare their candidacy for the Aug. 16 primary.

Yep. This has been happening for years. The uniparty HAS to stay in power.
The Stupid Party strikes again.
If a chorus of political hacks can convince her to withdraw, she doesn’t belong in the race.
THEY ALREADY DROPPED OUT.
What about that Child Rapist Bouchard? Is he still in?
FTA: “But while two candidates have dropped out in light of the endorsement, at least four Cheney challengers say that they intend to stay in the race.”
Anthony Douchard who impregnated a 13 year old is staying in because mah principles.
More than just the two?
If she loses we win. If she wins she will vote for the Biden party, which she would have done anyway.
That's called a 'given,' not a risk, and traitor, not a candidate.
The way to send the message to the GOP is to vote her out in the general.
A Republican traitor in the long run is worse than a Democrat, in the short run.
We can’t keep up the insanity of voting for the RINOs and expecting them to magically be real Republicans.
You want real Republicans, stop voting for fake ones.
I agree but you will probably get flamed for this.
Trump’s endorsements are of interest to me, yet they don’t determine who I vote for. I have seen attacks against Trump’s endorsement in the Wyoming race. My first thought is, who benefits from the negative press. The second thought is, what’s the other side of the story. There is so much bad information printed in the media.
This might be how you won primaries in the past, but it ain't gonna work this time. You traitors can run 100 challengers. It's different this time because there is only ONE Trump-endorsed challenger and WE THE PEOPLE who had our votes stolen by RINO-controlled legislatures who refused to enforce voter ID are MAD AS HELL, and we're coming for you in 2022!!
Unite behind the Trump-endorsed challenger for all GOP primaries. Do this and we will purge the RINO scum who gave the Steal to Potato Joe on a platter, all because of their petty hatred and jealousy of Trump.
RINOs are the reason for the woke clown world we must now endure. If everyone with an (R) after their name was a conservative patriot who would fight for the people like Trump did, the Republican party would be unstoppable.
This is the only way to stop the Marxist takeover of America. Purge the RINOs from the GOP.
“Trump’s endorsements are of interest to me, yet they don’t determine who I vote for.”
I weigh his endorsements as follows:
1) Is he getting rid of the really bad stuff, as in Cheney?
2) If I don’t go with his endorsement, am I helping the really bad stuff, as in Cheney (again)?
I worry about purity after getting rid of the mold (and yeast, in her case).
Have to hope that the people are a red this time around.
Rather than worry about this, if the people and state legislature in Wyoming really wanted changes, they’d be demanding her resignation.
Start a statewide petition demanding she resign and never come back to Wyoming. Someone else can pack up her house and send that crap to DC.
If they are genuine conservatives they are stupid. There are plenty of stupid conservatives out there. Todd Akin is an example.
Second sentence: “But while two candidates have dropped out in light of the endorsement, at least four Cheney challengers say that they intend to stay in the race.”
