Go Liz, Go!… Liz Cheney May Challenge Mike Enzi in Wyoming GOP Senate Primary
Liz Cheney has reportedly already called Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) to tip him off that she is looking at challenging him in the Republican primary in Wyoming.
Here’s Liz Cheney on patriotism…
“My point in this oped was to say, “Wait a second!” When you have a president who’s embarked on such a dangerous path, whether you want to talk about domestic policy, ignoring the debt, trying to trample on our Second Amendment rights, on our religious freedom, national security, weakening this nation… Across the board his policies are so dangerous that it is not obstructionism to block them, I think, it is indeed patriotism.
What a refreshing voice of reason.
CBS News reported:
Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, is eyeing a Senate seat in Wyoming, a state her father once represented in the House of Representatives.
There’s only one problem: The seat Cheney covets is already held by a Republican, Sen. Mike Enzi, a friend and former fly-fishing partner of her father’s. And as her designs on the seat become increasingly apparent, the state’s Republican establishment is growing concerned that her ambition may tear the Wyoming GOP apart, the New York Times reports.
Cheney, who grew up in Virginia due to her father’s rotating roles in public service but moved to Wyoming in 2012, called Enzi this year to tell him she may challenge him in a primary race in 2014.
“She called me and said she’s looking at it,” Enzi told the New York Times, adding that Cheney did not bother to ask him whether he plans to run again.
Enzi said he hadn’t heard from his “good friend” Dick Cheney recently, but “I would expect that he’d call before” his daughter declares her candidacy.
