A very good sign for Trump-endorsed challenger Harriet Hageman.
According to the Casper Star-Tribune, Harriet Hageman, former President Donald Trump’s pick to take on Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) in the Republican primary, won a straw poll conducted by the Wyoming Republican State Central Committee with 59 votes on Saturday.
Cheney received just 6 votes.
“I think it’s a good sign. It’s not an endorsement, but these are the county activists” Hageman told the newspaper.
“The only elections that matter are in August and November,” Jeremy Adler, a spokesperson for the Cheney campaign, told the newspaper after the vote.
“This smells like an endorsement to me,” Natrona County Committeeman Joe McGinley said. “Whether that is the true intention of the state … or not, that’s what it appears to be.”
Hageman’s not celebrating just yet.
“There will be lots of polls over the next eight months, and they will all show different things,” she said.
