Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) was removed from the House GOP leadership in May, and has been a target of many in her own Republican Party since her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump after the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection. That hasn’t put a dent in her fundraising, however, since Cheney raised about $7 million in 2021 for her re-election — more than doubling her campaign’s fundraising haul for the entire 2020 cycle.

Cheney raised most of that money from out-of-state donors while her opponent Harriet Hageman, who Trump endorsed, raised about $745,382 with the majority from in-state donors.

Texas tops the list with donors from that state contributing $556,430 to Cheney’s campaign. California is the second highest, with the state’s donors contributing $541,880. Cheney raised $466.100 from Virginia donors, $450,370 from Florida donors, $408,290 from New Yorkers and $215,600 from Connecticut donors. Donors from each of those states have contributed significantly more for Cheney’s 2022 reelection bid than they did for the 2020 election

Wyoming, the state Cheney represents, is an exception.

Last election cycle, Wyoming donors gave Cheney $276,290, more money than any other state. In 2021, Cheney raised $202,980 from donors in Wyoming, placing the state in seventh place. 

Cheney’s campaign raised three times more from donors during the first year of the 2022 election cycle in California than it did during the entire two-year 2020 election cycle, bringing in $173,670 from California donors. Virginia donors also tripled their contributions from last year, raising $129,690 for Cheney during the 2020 election cycle. Connecticut donors raised eleven times as much for Cheney last year when compared to the 2020 cycle.

She also doubled her donations in Florida after raising $212,800 in the last election cycle, and in New York where she previously received $196,750. In 2021, Cheney raised four times the $137,090 she raised from Texas donors during the entire 2020 election cycle.
