Harriet Hageman running for second term in Congress

(The Center Square) – U.S. Rep. Harriet Hageman, R-Wyo., is seeking a second term, she announced on Thursday.

“We need more strong conservatives here in the House,” Hageman said in a video posted on X, formerly known as Twitter. “We need to flip the Senate and we must take back the White House.”

Hageman entered office in January 2023 after defeating Rep. Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, to represent Wyoming’s t-large congressional district.

A video of Hageman hugging Trump at a political rally was included in the campaign announcement posted on social media.

“I have met with thousands of constituents, students, and community and business leaders across the state, and I held a public town hall in all 23 counties to discuss my work and your concerns,” said Hageman.

“I held Biden administration officials accountable, questioning them on their government-imposed wretchedness in the form of energy poverty, the criminals and terrorists flooding our southern border, and the blatant overreach and violation of our constitutional rights by our own federal agencies,” she added.

The Cheyenne Republican added that she was “proud to support our House priorities in passing the Power Act and Coal Act to protect our Wyoming industries.”
