45th President Trump is reportedly set to meet with a potential primary challenger to rival Liz Cheney. Trump is meeting with Harriet Hageman, who previously ran for the Wyoming GOP gubernatorial nomination in 2018, in Bedminster, New Jersey. However, what makes Trump’s meeting with Hageman interesting is the fact she is a previous friend and supporter of the pro-impeachment Republican.
On Election Day 2018, Hageman wrote that she was “fortunate to be able to spend some time with Congresswoman Liz Cheney this morning, learning more about the challenges we face, as well as the positive steps that have been taken in the last two years to fix Washington D.C.”
As of Thursday morning, Hageman’s law firm website included two photos of her standing alongside Liz Cheney, including one in which they were joined by the congresswoman’s father, former Vice President Dick Cheney. There also was a photo of Hageman standing between a photo of Trump and the American flag.
Trump advisors told Politico they hoped a Trump endorsement will limit the numbers of challengers so that Cheney could not win renomination with only a plurality.
Republican Party officials in two rural Wyoming counties announced last weekend they no longer will recognize Liz Cheney as a party member because of her vote to impeach Trump.
Trump has vowed to support a primary challenger to unseat Liz Cheney after she voted to impeach him.
