Trump-Endorsed Candidate Trounces Bitter Liz Cheney in Republican Party Straw Poll, 59-6

Bitter Liz Cheney got trounced in a state GOP straw poll over the weekend. The winner Harriet Hageman, endorsed by President Trump, received 59 votes. Bitter Liz got six.

That was better than expected for Liz. She must by very hopeful.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported:
Harriet Hageman, the Donald Trump-endorsed candidate seeking to unseat Rep. Liz Cheney, won big Saturday in a straw poll of House candidates held by the Wyoming Republican State Central Committee.

The secret ballot of party activists awarded Hageman 59 votes, Cheney six, state Sen. Anthony Bouchard, R-Cheyenne, two and Denton Knapp one. The vote comes eight months before the GOP primary.

“I think it’s a good sign. It’s not an endorsement, but these are the county activists” Hageman told the Star-Tribune after the vote.

The state party itself is not statutorily allowed to endorse a candidate in the primary.

The state central committee consists of three representatives from each county and members of the state party, for a total of 74 votes.
