    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) was blown out in her primary race Tuesday evening against Harriet Hageman in Wyoming, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

    Cheney's loss comes after she chose to fight harder against Trump's claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen than she fought against President Joe Biden (D) and the Democrats.

    With more than 95% of the votes counted, Hageman secured greater than 66% of the vote while Cheney was only at 28.9%.

    "Congratulations to Harriet Hageman on her great and very decisive WIN in Wyoming," Trump wrote on social media. "This is a wonderful result for America, and a complete rebuke of the Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs. Liz Cheney should be ashamed of herself, the way she acted, and her spiteful, sanctimonious words and actions towards others. Now she can finally disappear into the depths of political oblivion where, I am sure, she will be much happier than she is right now. Thank you WYOMING!"

    Cheney recently took at a shot Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), who is viewed by many as the future of the Republican Party, in an interview with The New York Times where she also admitted that she liked to work with her Democrat colleagues more than her Republican ones.

    Cheney said that she "would find it very difficult" to support DeSantis in a general election against a Democrat if DeSantis becomes the 2024 GOP nominee for president.

    "I think that Ron DeSantis has lined himself up almost entirely with Donald Trump, and I think that's very dangerous," Cheney said.

    Cheney also said that she prefers working with her Democrat women in Congress than Republican women.

    "I would much rather serve with Mikie Sherrill and Chrissy Houlahan and Elissa Slotkin than Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert, even though on substance certainly I have big disagreements with the Democratic women I just mentioned," Cheney said. "But they love this country, they do their homework and they are people that are trying to do the right thing for the country."

    DeSantis blasted Cheney back in February over her work in targeting her own party by working with Democrats on the January 6 committee.

    "Cheney is totally off the rails with her nonsense," DeSantis said. "And I think she's not really a Republican in terms of what she's doing. We want people that are going to fight the left. And that's what we need to do in this country."

    "That's what we're doing in Florida, standing up for people's freedoms," DeSantis continued. "We're opposing wokeness. We're opposing all these things. To act like the main issue in this country is things that happened over a year ago, I can tell you in Florida that's not what Floridians are concerned about. They're concerned about inflation and gas prices."

    "So I think focusing on the issues and showing that we stand for things that matter to people is the way forward," DeSantis concluded. "To have a vendetta against Donald Trump and to constantly be bringing this up is just not something that I think Republican voters are interested in."
