Skip to comments.Third candidate quits after Trump endorsement in Cheney race
Posted on 09/14/2021 6:20:01 PM PDT by cotton1706
A Wyoming state legislator is no longer among the Republicans challenging Liz Cheney in 2022.
Republicans should unite to defeat Cheney, state Rep. Chuck Gray, of Casper, said in a statement suspending his campaign Tuesday.
Former President Donald Trump last week endorsed Cheyenne lawyer Harriet Hageman in the Republican U.S. House primary. Cheney reacted to the endorsement by saying, “Bring it.”
Gray was among more than half a dozen Republicans to challenge Cheney for her vote to impeach Trump for the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Gray is the third candidate, after Cheyenne attorney Darin Smith and Sheridan County Republican Party Chairman Bryan Miller, to suspend or end their campaigns after Trump’s endorsement of Hageman, the Casper Star-Tribune reported.
Those still in the race include state Sen. Anthony Bouchard, of Cheyenne, and retired U.S. Army Col. Denton Knapp, of Gillette.

Yep.... don’t need to be splitting the vote. Tough enough these dayz just getting legitimate votes.
Yes, and President Trump hopefully chooses wisely. He trust too many.
Are these endorsements welcomed or not?
Is the election being manipulated? If so, carrot or stick?
I’m sure he learned a lot, during 4 years in the world’s toughest job.
Harriet Hageman, with her historical GOP organization position(s) could easily be GOPee.
They need to also withdraw.
Other candidates may enter the race on Cheney's behalf to split the opposition vote.
I don't think Trump needs the money.
Trump is narrowing the field.
Which is bad news for Elizabeth Lynne Cheney a product of the Washington DC bureaucracy, not the people of Wyoming.
Says the illiterate prevaricator.
Sadly, I wish I could believe our elections were not rigged. But I do believe it so I expect Liz to come out the winner.
Who told you that? Name please.
It was on yesterdays stew peters show
It was on yesterdays stew peters show. Why in the world would Trump endorse someone who worked against him?
“The person that Trump endorsed in Wyoming doesn’t make any sense”
Who should’ve got Trump’s endorsement?
I’m unfamiliar with Wyoming politics.
However if its anything like my State, then everybody works for Washington DC. The American establishment controls all the politicians.
People working for him do
You can reject it
Explain why Trump would endorse someone who attempted to stab him in the back in 2016
