Wyoming Republicans who favor incumbent U-S Senator Mike Enzi have started fundraising on his behalf. This week, they formed a political action committee – or PAC – called “Wyoming’s Own” to rally voters for his re-election.
Wyoming’s Own co-founder Bill Cubin – son of former Congresswoman Barbara Cubin – says Enzi is hard-working and effective, and shouldn’t be replaced right now.
This week Wyoming’s senior senator, Mike Enzi, was surprised to learn he’ll be facing off against Liz Cheney in what’s expected to be one of the most heated Republican primaries in the nation. Matt Laslo reports from Washington that right now, the Republican Party is wrapping its arms around Enzi.
U-S Senator Mike Enzi says he remains surprised that Liz Cheney will run against him in the 2014 Republican primary, but he says he will go ahead with plans to run for re-election. Enzi stands by his statement that Cheney told him that she would not challenge him, something Cheney denies. He admits he’s surprised.
“I thought we were friends. (Not anymore?) Well I don’t have any reason not to. She hasn’t said anything she’s going to do or said anything bad about me yet.”
Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President and Wyoming Congressman Dick Cheney, formally announced her candidacy for the U-S Senate during press conferences in Casper and Cheyenne. Cheney will face off against incumbent Mike Enzi in next summer’s Republican primary.
During a news conference Cheney attacked President Obama and what she called his liberal agenda. She complained that too many Republicans have compromised with Democrats.
Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has announced that she will run for US Senate against incumbent Senator Mike Enzi in Wyoming’s Republican primary next year.
Although Cheney has spent most of her life outside the state, the attorney and former Fox News contributor has been in Wyoming in recent weeks, talking with prospective constituents. In her announcement video, Cheney promised to fight for lower taxes and freedom for the private sector, especially the energy industry.
