Sen. Anthony Bouchard, R-Cheyenne, released a new radio campaign ad this week in which he condemns incumbent U.S. Rep Liz Cheney for an “America last” agenda.
“Wyoming was Donald Trump’s best state not once, but twice,” Bouchard said in the ad, noting that “Liz Cheney betrayed nearly 200,000 of us who voted to re-elect our president.”
Bouchard announced his 2022 campaign against Cheney for her seat in Congress last week, due largely to her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump.
However, he said in his ad that the impeachment wasn’t the only reason for his congressional bid.
“President Trump made America great again with America first policies like bringing home our troops, building the wall and fighting illegal immigration – all policies Joe Biden, Liz Cheney and their fellow globalists oppose,” Bouchard said, adding he stands for “the Trump agenda of America first, not Liz Cheney’s globalist agenda of America last.”
Cheney was one of 10 House Republicans to vote in favor of impeachment following an assault on the U.S. Capitol earlier this month that she said Trump helped to incite.
Bouchard has raised almost $100,000 in donations during his first week of campaigning.
