Wyoming State Sen. Anthony Bouchard announces 2022 campaign for Cheney’s House seat

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Wyoming Republican state Senator Anthony Bouchard announced today, Jan. 20, his bid to run against Liz Cheney in the 2022 primary, for Wyoming’s lone seat in the House of Represnetatives.

Bouchard announced his plans to run in a press release posted to his campaign website, entitled, “Calling Cheney out of Touch, Sen. Bouchard Announces Run.” His campaign slogan is, “Stand up for America.”

The announcement states, “Wyoming was President Trump’s best state both times he ran. That’s because Wyoming voters are strong conservatives who want our leaders to stand up for America, defend our freedoms, fight for our way of life and always put working people first as President Trump did. Liz Cheney’s long-time opposition to President Trump and her most recent vote for Impeachment shows just how out-of-touch she is with Wyoming. Wyoming taxpayers need a voice in Congress who will stand up to Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, and not give them cover. That’s why I’m running for Congress.”

Bouchard’s announcement comes in the wake of several Wyoming lawmakers condemning Cheney for her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump. Trump was impeached in the House on Jan. 13, in a 232-197 vote. He is the only president to be impeached twice during one term.

Bouchard has represented District 6, Laramie, and Goshen Counties, in the Wyoming legislature since 2017. He describes himself as a “Pro-liberty, conservative republican.” His campaign website describes his professional career as an automotive technician and his current work in his family septic business.

Cheney has held her seat in the House since 2017. She is the third highest-ranking Republican in the House and is the Chairwoman of the Republican Conference.
