CASPER, Wyo. — Republican Harriet Hageman will be Wyoming’s next representative in the U.S. House of Representatives after winning the 2022 General Election.

Hageman secured 132,172 votes with all 23 counties reporting after midnight, besting challengers Lynnette Grey Bull (Democrat), Richard Brubaker (Libertarian) and Marissa Joy Selvig (Constitution Party), according to unofficial results from the Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office.

Hageman, an attorney who was raised on a ranch near Fort Laramie, secured the endorsement of former President Donald Trump ahead of the Republican Primary election. Hageman defeated incumbent Rep. Liz. Cheney in the primary with 65.7% of the vote to Cheney’s 28.7%.

In the aftermath of the events of Jan. 6, 2021 Cheney has been a vocal critic of Trump, serving as the lone Republican on the House Select Committee investigating the attacks on the U.S. Capitol. In the 2020 Presidential Election, Trump secured 69.5% of the vote in Wyoming.

The unofficial results of the 2022 General Election race for Wyoming’s lone seat in the U.S. House were as follows, according to the Secretary of State’s Office:

(Federal) U.S. Representative (two-year term):

  • Harriet Hageman (R): 132,172
  • Lynnette Grey Bull (D): 47,241
  • Richard Brubaker (L): 5,420
  • Marissa Joy Selvig (C): 4,503
