Embattled Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney is urging Democrats in her state to switch parties to support her August 16 primary reelection bid.


Cheney, who is polling far behind her Trump-endorsed primary challenger, sent out campaign mail last week to Wyoming voters with instructions on how to change their party affiliation to vote for her.


Her campaign website also now has a link to a form for changing parties.


According to The New York Times, Wyoming Democratic Party Chairman Joseph Barbuto was among those who received the instructions.


Barbuto also says his social media feeds have been flooded with Democrats posting about receiving the Cheney mailers.


"Even if every Democrat in the state switched over, I don't think it'd be enough to help her," he said about the strongly-Republican state, which has only one House member.


In November 2021, the Wyoming Republican Party voted in favor of no longer recognizing Cheney as a member of the GOP in its second formal rebuke for her criticism of Trump. Cheney also is the vice chairwoman of Democrat-led committee investigation the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.


In February, Cheney said she was not planning on recruiting Democrats to switch parties ahead of the primary.


"That is not something that I have contemplated, that I have organized or that I will organize," she told The Times.
