American politician Liz Cheney has lost her House seat for Wyoming, the Guardian reports.
The 56-year-old attorney and politician had been a US representative for the state’s congressional district since 2017 and chaired the House Republican Conference.
However, she lost renomination in Wyoming to Trump-backed rival Harriet Hageman on August 16 and her term will end on January 3, 2023.
This comes a year after the politician supported the second impeachment of Donald Trump, leading members of the House Republican Conference to attempt to remove her from the party leadership in February 2021.
Nancy Pelosi made Cheney vice-chair of the January 6 committee as she called for Trump to be impeached for his role in the 2021 storming of the Capitol.
Memes are now flooding Twitter as people react to the politician’s defeat. Here’s some of the best…
