Liz Cheney Wants Wyoming Democrats to Change Parties to Vote for Her in August Primary Election

Liz Cheney Wants Wyoming Democrats to Change Parties to Vote for Her in August Primary Election

Sad!

#NeverTrump Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney reportedly has sent instructions to Wyoming Democrats on how to change their party affiliations so they can vote for her.

Why on earth would Democrats vote for her? Oh, yeah. She’s hellbent on destroying President Donald Trump and losing to his preferred candidate in the primary.

The primary election is in August. Wyoming has only one representative in the House of Representatives.

Wyoming does not have open primaries. You must vote in your registered party’s primary but you can change your “affiliation on the day of your primary” no matter your “previous party affiliation.”

A poll from May showed 56% of the participants would vote for Harriet Hageman, the one who has Trump’s support. Only 26% chose Cheney.

Wyoming Democratic Party Chairman Joseph Barbuto received the mailer from Cheney. He said he has seen only Democrats posting the same mailer on their social media feeds.

As far as we know no Republicans got it.

Cheney brushed off the idea of recruiting Democrats to vote for her back in March:

Recruiting Democratic support has been a sensitive topic for Ms. Cheney since she voted to impeach former President Donald J. Trump following the Jan. 6, 2021, attack. She has cast her August primary contest with Harriet Hageman, who is allied with and endorsed by Mr. Trump, as a battle for the soul of the Republican Party. Recruiting Democrats to that fight could undermine those efforts.

In a February interview in Cheyenne, Wyo., Ms. Cheney dismissed the possibility that she would make a concerted effort to reach out to Democrats asking them to change parties ahead of the primary.

“That is not something that I have contemplated, that I have organized or that I will organize,” Ms. Cheney told The New York Times then, adding that she would “work hard for every single vote.”

Her spokesman, Jeremy Adler, said on Thursday that Ms. Cheney was “proud to represent all Wyomingites and is working hard to earn every vote.”

But will it work? In the first six months of 2022, the GOP gained 1,689 registered voters. Democrats and unaffiliated voters went down by 1,303.

Do the math. Wyoming has “four times as many registered Republicans as there are Democrats in the state.”

Barbuto: “Even if every Democrat in the state switched over. I don’t think it’d be enough to help her.”

It sounds like Cheney needs Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to win in August.

Liz, it sounds like the one who should be changing party affiliation is you.

Smells like shite…
And desperation.

Scum-sucking bottom feeder.
She needs to go out hunting with her husband.

Wasn’t like Dick Cheney’s name was str9ng to begin with, but it’s great to see his worthless daughter destroy what’s left of his family name.

    Oh, not wife?
    That’s what happens when I don’t get invited to all the right DC cocktail parties.

      I wouldn’t be surprise if he was messing with his own daughter, considering all the sickening depravity in DC and throughout the country nowadays.

“It sounds like Cheney needs Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to win in August.”

Cheney needs them—but they don’t need her.

She’s gonna lose in August.

Then she’s gonna move to DC and live next door to Obama.

1. deperate
2. democrats hate you (you warmongering neocon, lol)
3. how do you have the names/addresses of all the Democrats in Wyoming?
4. Not enough Democrats in Wy who’d even want to vote for you to put you over the top
5. is changing parties just for a primary even legal?

    henrybowman in reply to geronl. | June 23, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    3. You can buy it from some states’ registrars.
    5. Yeah, I’ve done it. Changed from independent to something else to affect a primary, then changed back. In my state, there’s a lead time, but conservatives know how to plan ahead.

      No, Democrats appear to game it better

        henrybowman in reply to gonzotx. | June 23, 2022 at 8:25 pm

        Conservatives do it independently, they don’t have a neighborhood nanny paid by the party to show up on all the right days and hold their hands as they hold the pen..
        It’s like doing the work to set your own alarm, as opposed to having the desk give you a wakeup call.

          All true, but Dems are more effective. They have 100 years of communist organizing experience. They elected one of their community organizers as president — with some help from China, but that’s how you do it.

          Republicans are a bunch of individuals standing on principle. A lot of time we look like Pickett’s division during Pickett’s charge — getting picked off, without strategy.

          We have to fight dirtier and more systematically. To hell with principle, win first.

          The trouble with using the Ring to fight Sauron, is that instead of defeating the dark lord, you’re only replacing him.

    4. msy be that answer to 3.

It worked for Barbara Mikulski in Alaska, but this ain’t gonna fly

    alaskabob in reply to geronl. | June 23, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    LISA Murkowski … or just “Lisa” on her signs. I think Mikulski was on East Coast but other than that… no difference. She has a lot of leftist support up here after decades of easy life under petro dollars lured so many up here. As for Cheney…it’s the UniParty isn’t it?

“It sounds like Cheney needs Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to win in August.”

And Dominion.

The Wyoming Democrat Party is reported to be pissed off at her for doing this.

Maybe they should have thought about that before they gave her their contact list, but it was all about screwing Trump then.

    gonzotx in reply to Gosport. | June 23, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    I doubt they are upset

    Bread and circuses

      Gosport in reply to gonzotx. | June 23, 2022 at 8:33 pm

      Yeah, at least some are.

      “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. pic.twitter.com/gpmDKkYqrC

    Not clear they had any control over any of it, As I explined elsewhere, this is one of the downsides of parties acting like they are creatures of the government. The state (not the party) decides who is or isn’t a member of “your” party, and will distribute this list in compliance with any laws they write.

    Here in my state, Bernie Sanders could register as a Libertarian, and the state Libertarian Party couldn’t do a damn thing to disavow him.

    Milhouse in reply to Gosport. | June 24, 2022 at 2:47 am

    What makes you think they gave her anything? Surely the list is a public record and anyone can get it from the Board of Elections.

LOLGF, Liz!

I (and many others) predicted this.

There is a much more efficient way for Liz Cheney to receive votes from Democrats in the primary.

Imagine her working the parking lot of a truck stop.
