Looks like they are missing an opportunity to possibly pick up a seat this fall in the western mountain region.


If Liz Cheney gets the GOP nomination, there will be plenty of disrespected Little Trumpsters looking for someone to vote for.

Wyoming will go Republican regardless

It leaves open the opportunity for Liz Cheney to run as an independent if she is defeated in the primary

Liz Cheney win in Wyoming? Not a chance. Not a scintilla of a chance.

I'm talking if Cheney wins the primary- the D's could appeal to disgruntled Republicans.

And of course if Cheney loses the primary, she could reach across the aisle to the D's and endorse the Democrat candidate.

I don't think that running as a 3rd party would be that effective as it would make her look like a sore loser. And it wouldn't help the D's, and they would be missing a chance to gain a seat.

I think Dems are willing to tolerate Liz Cheney over a MAGA a candidate

If Cheney wins the primary, mission accomplished
If she loses, it leaves open an independent slot where Dems can throw their support to Cheney along with whatever Republicans still support her

Cheney is a stealth Democrat, which is the only way they can hold this seat.
