He continued, “Some highly respected pollsters tell me she’s toast in Wyoming after siding with Crazy Nancy Pelosi and supporting the Democrat Impeachment Hoax.”
“And that’s just the beginning!” Trump added.
“This is a ‘hot’ race with some very interesting candidates running against her,” Trump said.
But the former president also emphasized there needs to be only one candidate challenging Cheney as to not split the primary field, giving the incumbent an advantage.
Trump said, “Remember though, in the end we just want ONE CANDIDATE running against Cheney.”
“I’ll be meeting with some of her opponents in Bedminster next week and will be making my decision on who to endorse in the next few months,” the statement read.
“JUST ONE CANDIDATE. Thank you!” Trump finished.

Cheney Vows She Will Keep Her Seat
Cheney joined nine other House Republicans in voting to impeach Trump after the Capitol riot on January 6.
In the Senate, the votes fell short from the number required for a conviction, though 57 did vote to convict. That vote took place after Trump had left office.
Trump critic Cheney lost her House Republican Conference Chair in May to Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, who was chosen to fill the seat after Cheney was ousted.
Cheney has served as a Wyoming’s lone U.S. House member since 2017 and said she plans to keep her job despite Trump’s efforts.
“The people of Wyoming are gonna have a very clear choice between somebody who is loyal to the Constitution and somebody whose claim is loyalty to Donald Trump, and I’m confident that people will make the right decision,” Cheney said on Tuesday, as reported by The Hill.
