Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) touted an endorsement from Yellowstone star Kevin Costner as she faces a difficult primary facing a rival endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

A tweet from Cheney includes a photo showing Costner smiling while wearing a shirt that reads “I’m for Liz Cheney,” with the post saying, “Real men put country over party.”

LIZ CHENEY BLASTS PRIMARY OPPONENTS FOR 2020 ELECTION DOUBTS IN NEW AD

Costner stars in the Paramount Network show Yellowstone, named after the national park that encompasses Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. His apparent endorsement has given Cheney one of her highest-profile backers to date. He has a 160-acre ranch in Colorado and does shoots for the show in Montana, according to Taste of Country.

Cheney is facing a tough GOP primary fight against Trump-backed Harriet Hageman for her at-large district while the incumbent helps lead the Jan. 6 committee’s investigation.

The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney was censured by her state’s Republican Party following her vote to impeach Trump after the Capitol riot, and later, the party voted in November to stop recognizing her as a Republican altogether.

The Republican primary for the Wyoming at-large House seat is Aug. 16. Recent polling shows Liz Cheney, who has also received the endorsement of former President George W. Bush, trailing Hageman.
