Wyoming Republican primary candidate Harriet Hageman on Thursday night’s debate stage slammed opponent Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) for being “obsessed” with the partisan January 6 Committee while failing to address relevant issues to Wyoming.
Referencing Cheney’s deep participation in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) committee, Hageman said on stage that “the press and certain people have obsessed over January 6.”
“The only time that the January 6 situation ever comes up is when people talk about how unfair this entire committee is,” Hageman said about her 30,000 miles of campaign travel through Wyoming. She continually “focuses an awful lot of time on the January 6 committee, but she’s not addressing the issues that are important to Wyoming.”
Hageman has consistently highlighted Cheney’s absence from Wyoming to lead House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s committee by labeling Cheney a “DC diva” who is “using her seat as Wyoming’s representative to pursue her own agenda” on the partisan January 6 committee.
Cheney has fought back against Hageman by asking Democrats for their votes, sending direct mailers to Wyoming Democrats. She has requested Democrats change parties to be eligible to vote in the open Republican primary.
Cheney’s direct mailing scheme is a flip-flop from what she told the Times in February. “That is not something that I have contemplated, that I have organized, or that I will organize,” Cheney said about soliciting Democrat votes.
Cheney’s conduct has drawn condemnation from the Wyoming Republican Party and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. After the Wyoming GOP voted to no longer recognize her as a Republican in November, in February, McCarthy announced his endorsement of Hageman to defeat Cheney, a rare move for a minority leader.

Liz Cheney hasn’t has a thought about Wyoming since the last election.
Liz Cheney stopped living in the real world a while back
When is the Wyoming primary?
I’ll be glad when November comes so Cheney will get the boot and the incoming congress can hopefully shut down this Jan 6 farce.
Harriet Hageman is very good... she can carry her side just fine.
Liz Cheney (D) Virginia wants Wyoming voters to keep her and her husband comfortable in their Virginia home.
I don’t think Cheney has a terminal case of stupidity. She knows the path she’s on and knows the likely electoral outcome.
At this point, she’s gonna go all out. There’s no turning back for her. There hasn’t been for some time now. But she is determined to go out kicking and screaming and try to drag Trump down further.
All of this also plays well to her likely post-Congress gig on MSNBC, CNN or Fox. Those are the people she’s talking to now - not the citizens of Wyoming.
She’ll be the lamest of ducks on August 17.
Cheney is a Dem. She just used RNC money to get elected. She should repay the RNC the funds she used to get elected. She just scammed the RNC donors.
The big question is Why!
Why is Liz pushing so hard on this?
What is her end game?
What does she expect will happen from all this?
With Adam Schiff, I can understand.
The only thing that makes any sense to me is that Liz is very upset about what Trump said about her daddy. Thus, she is seeking revenge.
All that is true, she has been so over the top and in your face, that she must have some sort of after election positioning in mind.
Trump lost it in many ways. The truth has to be pursued.
Somehow I must have missed this.
What did Trump say about Mr. Cheney?
‘Obsessed’ is a very good description of the way she’s been acting.
More like “possessed.”
