Republican politicians, along with Conservative political pundits, took to social media to celebrate RINO Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) losing her primary.
Cheney, one of the most prominent anti-Trump voices in the GOP and vice-chair of the Jan. 6th commission, was defeated Tuesday by the Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman, by a shocking margin of 37 points.
In addition to leading the Jan. 6th commission over the past 18 months, Cheney was a loud advocate of American intervention across the globe, following in her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney’s footsteps.
During a Wyoming rally in May, former President Donald Trump told supporters that Cheney and her father loved “endless, nonsensical, bloody wars”, and were “warmongers.”
“The Cheneys are diehard globalists and warmongers who have been plunging us into new conflicts for decades, spilling American blood and spending American treasure all over the world,” the former President explained.
“That’s why Liz Cheney voted no on bringing our troops back home from Syria, where they didn’t even want to have us,” Trump added, referencing Rep. Liz Cheney’s opposition to troop reductions during Trump’s term.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) applauded Hageman’s defeat of Cheney on Twitter late Tuesday night.
“Few people in Washington have been as wrong and damaging on foreign policy as Liz Cheney. Congratulations to @HagemanforWY on her victory tonight. I look forward to working with an advocate for liberty as the next Congresswoman from Wyoming. Bye Liz,” Paul tweeted.
