Voting is now closed in Wyoming. In Wyoming, Congressman Liz Cheney,, one of former President Donald Trump's greatest enemies, a Trump-backed challenger in the Republican primary, Harriet Hageman is fighting for her political life.
Alaska, another Republican-dominated state, also has a primary on Tuesday.
His August 11poll by the University of Wyominghad Hageman leading Cheney by nearly 30 points against him, with Hageman against Cheney by 28%. and he has 57% support.
Cheney is one of the last of 10 Republicans to vote to impeach Trump to face a major challenge. Only 2 of her 10 will win and advance to the general election in November. Four decided to retire or not run for re-election, and her other three lost or ceded the race to a major challenger.
But Cheney, once the third-ranked Republican in the House of Representatives leadership, had former Vice President Dick Cheney as her father. She was one of Trump's supporters. House's most outspoken enemy. She was Vice-Chairman of the House Committee andthe January 6, 2021 attack on the United States Capitol. Investigating, and two Republicans on the committee.
Cheney told her CBS News' Robert Her Costa on Tuesday that the primary is "certainly the start of a battle that will continue."
"And as a nation, we are facing a moment when our democracy is really under attack and threat," Cheney said.

Cheney added that he has no regrets about the campaign he ran. "I am extremely proud of all the work I have done with the people of Wyoming over the past six years and truly understand and recognize that nothing is more important than upholding our Constitution.
Republicans in Wyoming have condemned and disavowed her, a move largely symbolic: House leadership usually favors incumbents, but House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has endorsed Mr. Hageman after Trump.
Hageman, a former Trump critic, campaigned for Senator Ted Cruz in the 2016 election. But now she has accepted his endorsement, supporting his baseless claim that the 2020 election was stolen.
Cheney rose to national prominence in his crusade against the former president, buthas not closed the door to the presidential racesome anti-Trump Republicans Although Republicans like Cheney will have a free road in 2024, she was down by only 2% in a recentMorning Consult pollon the 2024 primary.
Another Trump opponent, Sen. Lisa Markowski of Alaska, was one of seven Republican senators who voted to impeach Trump. He's taking part in Tuesday's vote, but Markowski has at least two factors: Alaska has an open primary system and the top four vote-getters will advance to the November general election. and the state's introduction of rank-selection voting for the 2020 general election.
Murkowski, also from a powerful political dynasty, had previously returned from the political graveyard in 2002. Markowski, who was first nominated to the seat and elected in 2004, lost the primary in 2010. He then became the first U.S. Senator to win as a write-in candidate in over 50 years. She won re-election easily in 2016, but has become an enemy of Trump, including voting against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.
