After challenging Trump, Liz Cheney fights to keep her seat in Congress
Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) is likely not going to win reelection according to recent reports and polls due to her opposition of former president Donald Trump but people are still praising her for sticking to her beliefs regardless of reelection issues.
Of all the GOP members, Cheney is one of the most outspoken against Trump.
Many Democrats and non-Trump supporting Republicans have praised Cheney's efforts to speak out against Trump despite the power he holds over conservative voters.
As Wyoming residents cast their vote for the primaries on Tuesday, people advocated for Cheney on Twitter.
\u201cLiz Cheney is doing a very patriotic thing along with all the others who are on the Jan. 6th Committee. \nI hope the good people of Wyoming puts all the MAGA bullshit aside and votes for her in the primary today, otherwise she's gone.\u201d

\u201c.@RepLizCheney is going to lose tomorrow. By a lot. But she will lose with her honor & integrity intact. She\u2019ll lose as an American hero who defended her country & her Constitution. She\u2019ll lose as a woman of immense courage, standing alone in a party of cowards. Thank you Liz.\u201d
Unsurprisingly, Trump endorsed Cheney's competitor Harriet Hageman to replace Cheney's seat as Wyoming Representative.
"I strongly endorse Republican House of Representatives Candidate Harriet Hageman from Wyoming who is running against warmonger and disloyal Republican, Liz Cheney," Trump wrote in a press release last fall.
Other Republicans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Cheney's impending
Representative Lauren Boebert tweeted, "Good Morning to everyone except for Liz Cheney, who gets thrown into the trash heap of irrelevance today!"
Texas Representative Ronny Jackson encouraged Wyoming voters to cast a vote for Hageman.
Donald Trump Jr. similarly encouraged voters to vote for Hageman saying, "Cheney betrayed Wyoming's conservative values when she sold out to Nancy Pelosi and the radical left."
\u201cI do not agree with 90% of Liz Cheney's politics but to toss out one of the most effective leaders your state has because she believes in her country and the rule of law is bizarre.\u201d
