Posted on 09/22/2021 10:57:55 AM PDT by RandFan
WASHINGTON—The race for Wyoming’s single U.S. House district has pitted two of the biggest names in Republican politics against one another: both of the party’s living former presidents.
Former President George W. Bush’s first campaign event of the 2022 midterms will be a fundraiser to support Rep. Liz Cheney, the Wyoming Republican who is among former President Donald Trump’s top targets to unseat. The fundraiser will be held next month in Dallas, according to a copy of an invitation viewed by The Wall Street Journal.
Ms. Cheney is a daughter of Mr. Bush’s vice president, Dick Cheney, and is one of the most outspoken critics of Mr. Trump, whom she has blamed for instigating the riot in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, when his supporters attempted to block certification of the 2020 election results.
Her criticism of Mr. Trump and his false claims that his critics stole the election from him led her Republican House colleagues to oust her from party leadership in May.
Mr. Trump endorsed Harriet Hageman, one of Ms. Cheney’s Republican challengers, earlier this month. Mr. Trump has called Ms. Cheney a “warmongering fool” and a “horrible human being.”

We need a wholesale House and Senate cleaning.
Most of the elected Republicans are nothing more than Assistant Democrats.
Re-electing Flimsey Grahamnesty and the rest of Mitch’s bitches is just digging the hole deeper.
Leave it to the MSM to frame it as a cage match. Doing so is much more helpful to Donald Trump than it is to the Bushes.
Wow, this is a difficult one. Who to choose????
Stay out ‘da Bushes!
Good luck with that.
True, but this is better defined as a match between Liz Cheney and Trump. Liz will not do well.
> “Who are you backing, Freepers?”
Doesn’t matter, Dominion or one of their cousins will determine who people should vote for.
Can’t support President Trump calling her a “horrible human being.”
Sorry I have to draw the line. Lizard Cheney isn’t human so this is incorrect.
Please make a note of it.
Liz Cheney’s Re-Election Bid Pits MAGA Against RINOs
“...Her criticism of Mr. Trump and his false claims that his critics stole the election from him...”
Notice the bias and editorial lie by the WSJ. This is what goes for ‘journalism’ these days.
If I were a betting girl my money would be on Trump. It’s Wyoming, primaries are base elections, and Trump’s hold on the base is much stronger than Cheney’s or Bush’s. The only thing that could save Cheney is a crowded primary and that is looking less and less likely.
Now that swamp creature W has equated January 6th with 9/11 I only see him pulling votes from Rats,living and dead.
“…when his supporters attempted to block certification of the 2020 election results.”
Sure dumb-asses, if by “attempted to block certification” you mean “exercised their first amendment right to gather in protest and demand justice regarding a stolen election”.
Cheney will raise tens of millions - we all gotta throw some money to Harriet Hageman
Lez Cheney hasn’t thrown in the towel and joined the “View” yet?
She must think curious George has links to manipulating the voting machines. Which he likely does.
Need to oust the RINOs at the State level too. If it wasn’t for them, the Steal never would have happened. They let Sec of States, governors, election boards change the election rules. That’s supposed to be the State Legislators’ job.
Same with the underlying structure of the GOP. All these Precinct committee people that elect the Delegates and have a lot of say about who makes it into the primaries. Those committee people that are elected as state leaders get to vote for the national GOP leaders, as in Ronna ROMNEY McDaniels. Those committee people vote every two years so it wouldn’t take long to be voting on national leadership. Imagine replacing Ronna with someone like, oh I don’t know, Donald Trump Jr.
Heads exploding on both sides.
PrecinctStrategy.com as seen on Warroom. S Carolina, GA and AZ GOP are well on the way to being MAGA. It needs to happen in every State, even the blue ones because they do still have a GOP who at the State leadership level get to vote for the national leadership. That includes the Chairman/woman but also the treasurer. MAGA people could hold the purse strings, database of registered repubs. They could defund the RINOs by not spending a dime on their campaigns. Most would quit before spending their own money like Trump did.
“his false claims that his critics stole the election from him”
Nothing like good, old-fashioned objective journalism.
Hope Liz Cheney goes down big-time. And shame on GW. Though I guess he must be bitter from the way Trump emasculated his brother during the debates.
