Guys, our pal and fellow Scissorhead 10 Bears (AKA Cassandra’s Grandson) over at Homeless on the High Desert gave us a warning that we would be well-advised to heed: if Liz Cheney is defeated in her 2022 primary, she will have two years to position her 2024 Goat Rodeo Run.
And right on cue, we have the news:
A Casper Star-Tribune poll released Friday showed Trump-endorsed Hageman with a 22-point lead over Cheney.
NBC’s Marc Caputo gets his hands on another Wyoming poll — via WPA Intelligence for the conservative Club for Growth — which shows Hageman up 28 points among likely primary voters, 59%-31%. (The Club for Growth has endorsed Hageman.)
From Caputo: “Those results are based on a model in which 13% of the primary’s voters are Democrats (Wyoming allows party-switchers to vote in primaries). The poll tested two other scenarios, where Democrats are 20% or 25% of the electorate, and Hageman still leads Cheney by 18 percentage points and 12 points, respectively.”
Never, ever underestimate Blam-Blam’s little squirt. She’s all Cheney, through and through.
Same story gives us the finances:
Cheney is among the five GOP incumbents who outraised their Trump-backed challengers in the latest fundraising quarter, although Hageman is the best-funded challenger of the group. Cheney raised $2.9 million to Hageman’s $1.8 million, ending the quarter on June 30 with nearly $7 million in her campaign account to Hageman’s $1.4 million. Cheney also spent nearly twice as much as Hageman over the quarter.
And please, don’t come at me with the wonderful news about how good she in on the J6C hearings. Remember Liz Cheney is there to HURT people who are in the way of her ambitions.
