Trump critic Liz Cheney loses Wyoming while Sarah Palin makes comeback

Trump’s biggest critic in the Republican party was unseated by a Trump-backed challenger Harriet Hageman.

The race for the Wyoming primary saw Liz Cheney lose by a double digit margin.

Cheney is the vice chair of the House committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot and Trump's role in fueling it.

The once high-ranking Republican official lost her footing in the party after she voted to impeach Trump.

Alaska GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski, who also voted against Trump, managed to keep her seat against another Trump candidate.

Meanwhile, Trump-backed former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is making a political comeback for the state’s House seat.

Cheney earns $174,000 per year as a member of Congress, and has an estimated net worth of $15 million in 2022.

Sarah Palin was the first female governor of Alaska and has an estimated net worth of $12 million in 2022.
