Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., appears at an Election Day gathering in Jackson, Wyo., to concede defeat in a GOP primary to Harriet Hageman, who was backed by former President Trump. Cheney vows that she will carry on her work to make sure Trump doesn't return to the presidency.

Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney conceded defeat in the primary election for her House seat on Tuesday following months of her withering criticism of former President Donald Trump and his efforts to subvert the 2020 election.

"This primary election is over, but now the real work begins," Cheney said, nodding to future political plans to take on Trump. Cheney noted that she had called opponent Harriet Hageman to congratulate her.

Hageman, an attorney endorsed by Trump who once was a Cheney supporter, overtook the incumbent by a wide margin in early returns. In a state that gave Donald Trump his biggest victory in 2020, Hageman is on a glide path to win the seat outright against Democratic opponent Lynnette GreyBull in November.
