U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney on Wednesday has tested positive for the Covid virus, she announced Wednesday morning.
“While I am fully vaccinated and boosted, I received a positive test result for COVID-19 early Wednesday morning,” Cheney said. “I am currently experiencing mild symptoms and will follow the CDC’s guidance as I continue to work on behalf of the people of Wyoming.
“I continue to pray for the people of Uvalde, Texas, especially the mothers and fathers who have lost their little children in this horrific attack,” she continued.
As of Wednesday morning, only Anthony Bouchard had formally filed as a candidate in the GOP primary for Wyoming’s lone U.S. House race.
Although Cheney has announced she’s running for re-election, she has yet to file. Nor has Cheyenne attorney Harriet Hageman. Trump is expected to reiterate that support during a rally with Hageman in Casper on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Cheney’s campaign is preparing for the rally with Trump by buying billboards “welcoming” the former president to the community.
The billboards either take a slap at competitor Harriet Hageman by reminding voters of Hageman’s endorsement of Cheney or of Hageman’s denouncement of Trump’s campaign when she called him a “racist.”
