Who is Harriet Hageman: Beating Liz Cheney in Wyoming race and net worth

Incumbent Wyoming Republican Rep Liz Cheney was defeated in the race for the House seat.

This comes in the heel of her strong criticism of former President Donald Trump in the January 6 Capitol riots.

Cheney lost the race to Harriet Hageman, an attorney who supported Cheney in her race for the House in 2016.

Hageman, a Wyoming native, received both her undergraduate degree and law degree from the University of Wyoming.

Specializing in natural resources and water litigation, she represented the federal government in private property cases and has her own firm.

She first joined the political fray when she unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2018.

Trump officially endorsed Hageman, a former Republican National Committee member for the state of Wyoming.

Harriet Hageman has an estimated net worth of $5 million in 2022. Her salary is around $100,000 per year from the Republican Party.
