Following months of vehement criticism of former President Donald Trump and his attempts to rig the 2020 election, Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney admitted loss in the primary race for her House seat on Tuesday.

When referring to upcoming political initiatives to oppose Trump, Cheney remarked, "This primary race is gone, but now the real work begins." Cheney mentioned that she had congratulated her opponent Harriet Hageman via phone.

Hageman, a Trump-backed lawyer who formerly backed Cheney, gained a commanding lead against the incumbent. Hageman is on track to defeat Democratic challenger Lynnette Greybull in November in a state that handed Donald Trump his greatest victory in 2020.

It was a predictable consequence for Cheney, who transformed from a party favorite and the heir to a conservative family to a political outcast the minute she decided to distance herself from the former president after learning of his participation in inciting a crowd to storm the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

Tuesday night in Jackson Hole, close to her home, Cheney spoke to supporters and reaffirmed her commitment to doing all in her power to prevent Trump from retaking the presidency.

Cheney claimed that "our country is hurtling once more into disaster, chaos, and bloodshed." "No American should back election-fraud supporters."

Cheney, according to Hageman, was acting contrary to state policy.

Some Republicans believed Liz Cheney was setting herself up to become the first female Republican speaker of the House when she decided to run for reelection to her House seat in 2020 rather than seek a vacant Senate seat.

Even though Trump's name is not on the ballot for Tuesday, his thumb still controls the outcome.

Cheney's supporters claim that if she had followed the example set by the great majority of her Republican congressional colleagues and sided with Trump, she would have won reelection with ease. Instead, Cheney made the election solely about her choice to oppose the outgoing president.
