know about Harriet Hageman, who defeated Liz Cheney in Wyoming's GOP primary
The next representative from Wyoming in the U.S. House is probably going to be Harriet Hageman.
She defeated incumbent Representative Liz Cheney on Tuesday in the Republican primary with the support of former President Donald Trump.
