Harriet Hageman (Dan Cepeda, Oil City News File)

CASPER, Wyo. — Candidate Harriet Hageman defeated incumbent U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney in Wyoming’s Republican Primary on Tuesday.

Hageman secured 65.7% of the vote in the Republican Primary, according to the Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office. Cheney finished second in the primary, securing 28.7 % of the vote.

Hageman will face Democrat Lynnette GreyBull in the General Election race for Wyoming’s lone seat in the United States Congress. GreyBull won the Democratic Primary with 55% of the vote, the Secretary of State’s Office reported.

Independent candidates have until Monday, Aug. 29 to file for placement on the General Election ballot.

The backlash against Cheney for her vote to impeach former President Donald J. Trump in the wake of the U.S. Capitol riot only increased due to her leadership position on the January 6 committee investigating Trump’s role in inciting the mob. 70% of Wyoming voters cast ballots for Trump in 2020, and the state party voted to censure Cheney.

The results by ballots cast in the Republican Primary were as follows, according to the Secretary of State’s Office:

  • Robyn M. Belinskey: 1,035
  • Anthony Bouchard: 4,505
  • Liz Cheney: 49,316
  • Harriet Hageman: 113,025
  • Denton Knapp: 2,258

Results in the Democratic Primary were as follows:

  • Lynnette Greybull: 4,503
  • Steve Helling: 897
  • Meghan R. Jensen: 1,833

The General Election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Absentee voting for the General Election will begin on Sept. 23 and run through Nov. 7.
