And then there were two.

Following the defeat of Rep. Liz Cheney in Tuesday’s Wyoming Republican primary by a Trump-backed challenger , just two GOP House members who voted to impeach Donald Trump over his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol siege will be on the ballot in November.

The other eight, now including Cheney, either lost their primaries or chose to retire.

The two who advanced are Reps. Dan Newhouse of Washington and David Valadao of California.

Besides Cheney, here’s who lost their primaries:

• Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington

• Peter Meijer of Michigan

• Tom Rice of South Carolina

And these are the four who decided not to run again:

• Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio

• John Katko of New York

• Adam Kinzinger of Illinois

• Fred Upton of Michigan

Trump and his team celebrated Cheney’s loss, as the Associated Press reported, with the former president calling the result “a complete rebuke” of the Jan. 6 committee.

“Liz Cheney should be ashamed of herself, the way she acted, and her spiteful, sanctimonious words and actions towards others,” the former president, barred from posting to Twitter and Facebook, said on his own social-media platform.

The congresswoman is the top GOP member of the House panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters, which disrupted for hours the congressional certification of President Joe Biden’s election victory over Trump two months before. Her future after leaving Congress could include a presidential run, as MarketWatch has reported.
