The vast majority of Rep. Liz Cheney’s donors do not live in Wyoming and will not be able to vote for her.
The Wyoming primary is on August 16.
Cheney may have raised millions, but only $202,980 came from donors in Wyoming.
Challenger Harriet Hageman, who Trump has endorsed, has raised about $745,382 — with the majority coming from in-state donors.
“Texas tops the list with donors from that state contributing $556,430 to Cheney’s campaign. California is the second highest, with the state’s donors contributing $541,880. Cheney raised $466.100 from Virginia donors, $450,370 from Florida donors, $408,290 from New Yorkers and $215,600 from Connecticut donors. Donors from each of those states have contributed significantly more for Cheney’s 2022 reelection bid than they did for the 2020 election,” Open Secrets reports.
The report adds, “Last election cycle, Wyoming donors gave Cheney $276,290, more money than any other state. In 2021, Cheney raised $202,980 from donors in Wyoming, placing the state in seventh place.”
Speaking on a live stream with Issue One’s CEO Nick Penniman on Tuesday, Cheney was asked about running as part of another party, as Republicans have removed from the House GOP leadership after she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.
“I’m a Republican, and I believe in what the Republican party stands for. I think the best thing for our country is to have a really healthy and strong Republican party, and a really healthy and strong Democratic party.” She said, adding “my chuckle was thinking about my fellow Republicans who think that they have kicked me out, and can take over my party – which they can’t.”
