Former President Donald Trump will meet with a few of Wyoming U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney’s primary opponents next week. Trump is looking for which one he might endorse. While endorsements usually don't make any kind of a difference in political races, this one will certainly be the exception.

The announcement was made on Donald Trump's website. 

“Paying close attention to the Wyoming House Primary against loser RINO Liz Cheney,” Trump said on Tuesday. “Some highly respected pollsters tell me she’s toast in Wyoming after siding with Crazy Nancy Pelosi and supporting the Democrat Impeachment Hoax. And that’s just the beginning! This is a “hot” race with some very interesting candidates running against her. Remember though, in the end we just want ONE CANDIDATE running against Cheney.”

What is not mentioned in the statement is who the former president will be meeting with. There are more candidates in the race than people know about. So has he selected just a few of the top runners or will he meet with them all?

POP QUIZ: How many people are running against Liz Cheney? No peeking. Can you name them all? Think about it a moment then look at the list below to see how many you got.

Wyo State Senator. Anthony Bouchard,
R-Cheyenne, state rep. Chuck Gray, R-Casper,
Cheyenne businessman Darin Smith,
Retired U.S. Army Col. Denton Knapp,
Sheridan resident Bryan Miller,
Sheridan businesswoman Robyn Belinskey,
Former Pavillion Mayor Marissa Selvig
Bryan Keller.


According to Cowboy State Daily - Sheridan’s Belinskey and Knapp, of Gillette, said they had not been contacted about the meeting as of Tuesday afternoon. Other candidates could not immediately be reached for comment.

Since Belinskey and Knapp are not even a blip on the radar so far in this primary election that might be a clue that former President Trump has only contacted front runners.
