CODY, Wyoming — President Donald Trump announced Tuesday he will meet next week with some of the Republican candidates challenging Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) for Wyoming’s lone seat in Congress.
The former president has taken a keen interest in the Wyoming Republican primary, looking for a candidate who has the ability to defeat Cheney.
“Some highly respected pollsters tell me she’s toast in Wyoming after siding with Crazy Nancy Pelosi and supporting the Democrat Impeachment Hoax. And that’s just the beginning!” Trump said in a statement. “This is a ‘hot’ race with some very interesting candidates running against her.”
Trump has promised to endorse a candidate early in the race to thin the field, as Wyoming conservatives typically split the vote in primary races and the more moderate establishment candidate goes on to win the race.
