Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has become desperate in her campaign to retain her seat in Congress, as news has broke that she is now soliciting support from Democrat voters, begging them to change parties to become eligible to vote for her in the August Republican primary.
With Cheney now trailing behind her Trump-endorsed challenger — America-First GOP candidate Harriet Hageman — by 28 points, the RINO Republican congresswoman has sent direct mailers out to Wyoming Democrats, begging them to change their party affiliation to vote for her.
The mailer provides Democrat voters with Cheney’s campaign web address to learn more specifics about the process.
“DO I HAVE TO BE REGISTERED AS A REPUBLICAN TO VOTE FOR LIZ IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY?” the website link states.
“HOW DO I CHANGE MY PARTY AFFILIATION TO REGISTER AS A REPUBLICAN SO I CAN VOTE FOR LIZ?” another reads.
Cheney lost the support of Republican voters in her state after turning on former President Donald Trump while he was in office, possibly for criticizing her father. Since then, she joined with the Democrats in one of their attempts to impeach former President Trump, and is now a member of the sham House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot, which cost the RINO congresswoman her national GOP leadership post.
Cheney’s mailers began showing up just a few days ago, and Democrats are definitely not amused.
“Cheney sent a mailer out blatantly asking folks to switch parties for the primary. Whatever you think about the 1/6 committee, remember THEY made the party what it is. THEY made Trump possible. We have 3 very different Dems vying for the House. Vote in OUR primary, not theirs,” one county party stated in response to the mailer.
Joseph Barbuto, the chairman of the Wyoming Democrat Party, was among many of the state’s residents who received Cheney’s flyer. In a statement to the New York Times, he said that her plan to try to win reelection through support from Democrat voters is likely doomed to fail.
“Even if every Democrat in the state switched over, I don’t think it’d be enough to help her,” Barbuto said.
The Democrat chairman is correct. Looking at the numbers in the heavily Republican state, Wyoming has approximately four times more registered Republican voters than Democrats. The Wyoming secretary of state’s office reports that the GOP increased voter registration over Democrats by 1,689 between the months of January and June, while Democrat and unaffiliated voter registrations decreased by 1,303.
In February @Liz_Cheney said she wouldn’t do this.
Even so, the chairman of the Wyoming Democrats says: “Even if every Democrat in the state switched over, I don’t think it’d be enough to help her.” https://t.co/bjXeO8D9XA

Cheney’s desperate attempt to retain her seat in the House is a flip-flop from what she previously told the New York Times in February.
“That is not something that I have contemplated, that I have organized, or that I will organize,” the congresswoman said about soliciting Democrat votes.
Cheney has been accused of being out-of-touch with her voters, especially since she has been spending the vast majority of her time in Washington, D.C., helping Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) with the January 6 committee.
“Liz Cheney has lost Wyoming. Liz Cheney doesn’t live in Wyoming. She doesn’t represent us,” Hageman, Cheney’s primary opponent, told Breitbart News. “She doesn’t represent our values.”
