WYOMING REPRESENTATIVE LIZ CHENEY JUST LOST HER LEADERSHIP POSITION IN WASHINGTON... AND NOW SHE IS FACING PRIMARY CHALLENGES IN HER HOME STATE. FIVE OTHER REPUBLICANS ARE ON THE BALLOT FOR A SHOT AT HER SEAT.
THE FIRST CANDIDATE TO ANNOUNCE A RUN WAS STATE SENATOR ANTHONY BOUCHARD...
-- Bouchard has been in the WY state legislature since 2017.
-- Bouchard is dealing with a scandal. He recently revealed he impregnated a 14 year old girl when he was 18.It was a disclosure he said he was forced to make because of "the establishment swamp," but he did not explicitly blame Cheney or any of the other candidates in the race.
-- He later married and divorced the girl. He told a newspaper he married her in Florida after she turned 15. He also told the paper they went through "kind of a bitter divorce" and that she died by suicide at age 20.
-- According to CNN,Bouchard and Wyoming state Rep. Chuck Gray have so far offered themselves up as pro-Donald Trump candidates for the GOP nomination in this heavily Republican congressional seat and have unapologetically backed Trump's baseless electoral claims, which Cheney has warned are a grave threat to democracy.
