Cheney’s loss was widely expected, as many Cowboy State Republicans turned on her for voting to impeach Donald Trump and help lead the Jan. 6 committee. The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney has vowed to help steer her party away from Trump’s influence. After the resounding loss, many in the entertainment world — on both sides of the aisle — reacted to the defeat.
