彼女が予備選挙で勝利した後の Fox News Digital とのインタビューで, ヘイジマン氏は、彼女の勝利は、ワイオミング州の有権者がチェイニーを代表として拒否したことを直接反映していると述べた, as well as their dissatisfaction with her and Democrats’ treatment of ドナルド・トランプ前大統領. She laid out her intention to bring Washington, D.C., back to prioritizing “accountability and success.”
“Wyoming has spoken, and it was a resounding victory,” Hageman said when asked how she felt following her win. “I think that it is a reflection on a couple of things. One is Liz Cheney. It’s a reflection on her and the fact that we don’t want her allegedly representing us in Congress anymore.”
“It was also, おもう, a reflection on what happened last week in Mar-a-Lago,” 彼女は付け加えた, referring to the FBI’s unannounced raid on Trump’s Florida home earlier this month.
ハーゲマン, who was endorsed by Trump last year in response to Cheney’s vote to impeach him 1月に続いて. 6 storming of the U.S. 国会議事堂, has been a staunch defender of the former president and has spoken out on the continued investigations targeting him over his time in the White House.
She says that Wyomingites agree, arguing that they see through what “rogue agencies” like the FBI and DOJ are doing, as well as the effort by Congress “to destroy President Trump rather than govern the country.”
“ワシントン, D.C., has become too big and too corrupt,” 彼女は言いました. “I think that there are a lot of people in Washington, D.C., 共和党と民主党の両方, who don’t care whose in power so long as they are, and we need to change that.”
“We need to bring the power back to the people. We need to return the power to the states where it belongs. We need to actually adhere to our constitutional construct, which is separation of powers, being regulatory agencies and unelected bureaucrats have essentially taken over the role of legislating in this country. And that needs to fundamentally change,” 彼女は付け加えた.
Hageman said that the people of Wyoming, and Americans as a whole, were ready for “serious leaders” to take charge and solve the problems persisting across the country, naming decades-high inflation, open borders, the drug crisis, and the war on fossil fuel and energy industries as some of the top issues happening under the Biden administration’s watch.
“The people of Washington, D.C., are not serious, and they didn’t like President Trump because he recognized everyday, family-dinner-table issues that are important to the citizens of the United States, and he attempted to deliver,” 彼女は言いました.
“The last thing that people in Washington, D.C., want is accountability and success,” 彼女は付け加えた. “We want serious leaders who are going to start putting aside the nonsense and focus on the issues that are important.”
Hageman said that one of her main focuses as a congresswoman would be legislation addressing the need for increased domestic energy production. She cited the vast reduction in U.S. oil and gas production under the Biden administration and attributed that to the record-high gas prices plaguing Americans in recent weeks.
“None of this is rocket science. I’d take any average, everyday person off the street in Wyoming who could figure this stuff out inside of about 10 分. This isn’t complicated,” 彼女は言いました.
Hageman predicted Republicans would see “巨大な” success in the November midterm elections and declared that Wyoming was speaking for the rest of the country in its rejection of Cheney.
“Wyoming has spoken, and Wyoming is speaking on behalf of people all across this great country. We’re fed up. We’re just flat fed up. And there’s going to be a red wave in November, and I’m excited to be a part of it. We need to take our country back,” 彼女は言いました.
“I have talked about accountability. I’ve talked about my policies. I’ve talked about protection of our energy industries and the importance of energy independence, regulatory reform and what we need to do to get on top of it and get our country back,” 彼女は言いました.
“I think all of those things came together last night, and the folks in Wyoming have spoken, and they’ve said that they are really looking forward to having someone who is from Wyoming, cares about Wyoming and is going to represent Wyoming,” 彼女は付け加えた.
Hageman will now face Democratic nominee Lynnette GreyBull in the November general election but is expected to cruise to victory.
