What Significance Does Liz Cheney's Loss Hold Heading Into Midterms?

AllSides Summary

Voices across the spectrum are weighing in on what Liz Cheney's loss in the Wyoming GOP House primary represents.

Only two of the 10 "pro-impeachment" House Republicans have advanced to the general election. Trump received the highest percentage of votes in Wyoming than any other state in the 2020 presidential election. Some outlets attributed Cheney's "unhinged anti-Trump rants" to her "inevitable" loss and accused her of being "far harsher" to Trump than President Joe Biden.

While left-rated voices were more likely to label Cheney as a "committed" conservative, right-rated voices were more divided on the matter. While some conservatives proclaimed that Cheney has displayed "courage," others condemned her as "comically narcissistic" and said she "lacks the star power of her father."
