Bouchard announces primary bid against Cheney in 2022


Wyoming State Sen. Anthony Bouchard has announced he will be running against Congresswoman Liz Cheney in the 2022 Republican primary.

In a news release announcing his campaign Wednesday, the hard-line conservative state senator said he was running to oust Cheney for her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump for his role in inciting a riot at the United States Capitol on Jan. 6.

Bouchard's announcement is not just bluster: as of Wednesday, he had an official website soliciting donations for his campaign and had formally filed paperwork with the Federal Elections Commission.

The Wyoming GOP itself condemned her actions, with the Carbon County Republican Party going as far as censuring the sitting congresswoman for her impeachment vote, arguing that she failed to represent the people of Wyoming.
