Just after 8:30 p.m., the first of many congratulations provided by the Spokeswoman for U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo,), Laura Mengelkamp issued this victory statement to challenger Harriet Hageman for U.S. Representative (R-Wyo.) in defeating incumbent U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney in the 2022 Primary election.
According to Goshen County Clerk’s office and election officials, there are 6,624 registered voters in the county, 4,654 ballots were cast, and voter turnout was: 70.26%

 “Congratulations to Harriet Hageman on her primary win. Harriet will be a tremendous ally in the fight to unleash American energy, combat inflation and secure our southern border. Along with Cynthia Lummis, the three of us will be a strong, conservative, and effective team for the people of Wyoming.”

Within minutes, the Hageman campaign issued this statement: “Wyoming has spoken on behalf of everyone all across this great country who believes in the American Dream, who believes in liberty, and who recognizes that our natural rights – the freedom of speech, freedom of religion, equal protection and due process, come from God, they do not come from the Government.”

Adding: “by our vote today, Wyoming has put the elites on notice – we are no longer going to tolerate Representatives who don’t represent us.”

Just before 10 p.m., incumbent U.S. Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), issued a seething concession statement to challenger and Republican Congressional candidate Harriet Hageman. In her statement she offered no congratulations. 

Cheney said the only path to victory for her, a now one-term Congressional Representative, meant, “it would’ve required that I go along with (former) President (Donald) Trump’s lie about the 2020 election. That was a path I could not take.”

Cheney went on to say, “No House seat, no office in this land is more important than the principles that we are all sworn to protect. And I understood the potential political consequences of abiding by my view, our Republic relies upon the goodwill of all candidates for office to accept honorably the outcome of elections.”

“Tonight, Harriet Hageman has received the most votes in this primary,” Cheney continued. “She won. I called her to concede the race. This primary election is over. But now the real work begins.”

Across various social media platforms, Republican politicians and 2022 General Midterm Election candidates congratulated Hageman on winning the Republican ballot in the primaries.

According to Goshen County election officials, 1,514 early and absentee ballots, of which at least 400 or more were considered to be crossover voters. There were 3,140 residents who voted day-of and in-person. County officials said it wouldn’t be until at least Friday before they could give the Telegram exactly how many county Democrats switched parties to Republican to presumably vote for soon-to-be former U.S. Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.).

In the fifth and final Goshen County ballot update at 10:28 p.m., with 14 of 14 precincts reporting, and 4,654 ballots counted, the following results were reported:

Challenger Hageman had 3,356, or 75.30% of votes, while Cheney had just 958, or 21.49% of votes.

Incumbent Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon was ahead with 2,620 votes, or 60.16%, while Brent Bien was just slightly behind with 1,341 votes, or 30.79% of the votes.

In the Wyoming Secretary of State race, 2,450 residents, or 58.35%, voted for Chuck Gray and just 1,216, or 28.96% voted for Tara Nethercott.

Hometown, LaGrange resident and incumbent Curt Meier is leading in the Wyoming treasurer race with 3,328, or 80.35%, voting for him and just 806, or 19.46% voting for challenger Bill Gallop.

Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction incumbent Brian Schroeder is currently leading the way with 1,889, or 46.82% of votes, while challenger Megan Degenfelder got 1,403, or 34.77% of votes.

Incumbent Cheri Steinmetz in the Wyoming Senate District 3 is leading in her race with 2,955 votes, or 69.28%, meanwhile, Marty Ertman had 1,301 votes, 30.50% of the votes.

Incumbent in the Wyoming House District 5 Shelly L. Duncan is trailing with just 1,546 votes, or 46.15% and challenger Scott Smith is leading the charge with 1,794 votes, or 53.55%.

In the Goshen County Commissioners race, candidates Michael McNamee pulled in 2,545 votes, or 31.63% and Aaron P. Walsh pulled in 1,397 votes, or 17.36%.
