If there is any doubt the 2022 Wyoming congressional election is going to be filled with fireworks, that should be cleared up by a Sunday morning reminder.

On Friday, former President Trump sent out a photo meme which merged the features of President George W. Bush and U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney.

The intent? Perhaps the Trump team thinks President Bush’s upcoming fundraiser for Cheney in Dallas is a negative.

Regardless, Cheney — never one to back down — fired back on Sunday morning with her own message.

“I like Republican presidents who win re-election,” she said, including a photo of President Bush in her tweet.

Days earlier she retweeted a recap of the months-long hand count of Arizona presidential election hand which showed that Trump did not win the contest in that state.

“The tabulation equipment counted the ballots as they were designed to do, and the results reflect the will of the voters. That should be the end of the story. Everything else is just noise,” said Maricopa County Board Chairman Jack Sellers on Friday.
