A Super PAC has launched an ad campaign to support Liz Cheney, the Republican Wyoming primary opponent.
“It is time to make a difference. Harriet Hageman is of Wyoming, from Wyoming and for Wyoming,” the narrator for Wyoming Values PAC’s ad states, followed by a clip of the challenger at a rally stating, “We’re fed up with Liz Cheney.”
The ad blitz for the PAC, which is Georgia-based and honorarily chaired by Donald Trump Jr., comes on the heels of the committee probing the Jan. 6 Capitol riot hosting its final hearing before summer break on Thursday. Donald Trump and Cheney, who is vice chair of the committee, have continued to spar — with the former president calling the congresswoman “a sanctimonious loser” following the latest hearing.

Hageman, who was endorsed by Trump in September 2021, led Cheney by 22 points in a July 15 Casper-Star Tribune survey. There were 1,100 registered voters surveyed and the poll had a plus or minus 3% margin error.
Liz Cheney abandoned Wyoming to focus all her attention upon her personal war against President Trump.” Carly Miller, Hageman’s campaign manager, stated to the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Wyoming only gets one member of the House and Cheney has failed to do her job of fighting against the disastrous Biden administration, instead choosing to do Nancy Pelosi’s dirty work.”
Hageman earned the endorsement of Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Tuesday. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul were also notable GOP endorsements of Hageman.
Cheney, who was censured by the Wyoming GOP for voting to impeach Trump following Jan. 6, told ABC in an interview that aired Friday, “The single most important thing is protecting the nation from Donald Trump.”
“I don’t intend to lose the Republican primary,” Cheney also said.
Wyoming’s primary is on Aug. 16. Wyoming Values PAC is spending roughly $500,000 across Wyoming to advertise the ad on TV, the group said.
“Unlike Cheney, Harriet Hageman will always fight for Wyoming values in Congress and will never become a puppet for Nancy Pelosi,” Andy Surabian, chief strategist to Wyoming Values PAC, who also worked on Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign, said in a statement.
Cheney’s campaign didn’t immediately reply to a request.
“Wyoming is fed up with Liz Cheney and Harriet Hageman will soundly defeat her in the August 16 Republican primary,” Miller also told the DCNF.
