(PatriotWise.com)- Harriet Hageman, the Trump-backed contender going up against Wyoming’s so-called “Republican” Rep. Liz Cheney, is reportedly spending a lot of time talking to national news outlets instead of focusing solely on local media outlets.
Mediaite, an outlet that often bashes Republicans and that we like to report on regularly, seemed to think it was strange that Hageman would do such a thing. The outlet reported that Hageman was “skipping” local media and delivering a message “primarily on national outlets instead.”
Their use of the word “primarily,” however, indicates that Hageman isn’t skipping local media entirely, but instead adopting a wider campaign that ensures people know about her campaign to oust Cheney and why she’s doing it.
“Hageman’s lack of engagement with local media is rare for a candidate in a state like Wyoming, where retail politics and local issues usually carry greater weight than national media and national issues,” Mediaite reports.
The outlet spoke to a political reporter for ABC and FOX affiliates in Wyoming, who said that his phone conversation with Mediate is “more contact than he has had with the Hageman campaign.”
Did they ever stop to think why Hageman may prefer not to speak to left-wing media outlets?
Hageman has engaged in a variety of interviews since the start of her campaign, ranging from local media outlets to national outlets like One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News. She has also appeared on the podcasts of Dines D’Souza and Steve Bannon.
As long as Hageman remains present in her district during the campaign, however, she’s unlikely to face any trouble.
And let’s not forget just how wildly unpopular Liz Cheney is after voting to impeach former President Donald Trump and sitting on the ultra-partisan House Committee that claims to be investigating the origins of the January 6 riot.
Hageman must first beat Cheney in the primaries, too. After that, she’ll be able to appear on local media as much as she likes to ensure she wins in November.
