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.
The Wyoming Republican Party paid the Internal Revenue Service $12,490 in penalties and interest for lapses in paperwork. The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/ryZygE ) the amount paid is noted on a GOP account balance sheet dated Nov. 10.
GOP Chairwoman Tammy Hooper says missing paperwork from 2008 included W-2s and forms necessary to maintain the party's status as a nonprofit political organization.
