Liz Cheney drops out of Wyoming Senate race

Liz Cheney drops out of Wyoming Senate race

Liz Cheney  is ending her campaign for Senate in Wyoming, citing health concerns in her family.  The news was reported by CNN late Sunday night and confirmed in a statement Monday.

From CNN:

Liz Cheney, whose upstart bid to unseat Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi sparked a round of warfare in the Republican Party and even within her own family, is dropping out of the Senate primary, she said in a prepared statement Monday morning.

“Serious health issues have recently arisen in our family, and under the circumstances, I have decided to discontinue my campaign,” she said.

Cheney, the eldest daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, began telling associates of her decision over the weekend, CNN reported late Sunday night.

“Though this campaign stops today, my commitment to keep fighting with you and your families for the fundamental values that have made this nation and Wyoming great will never stop,” she added.

Cheney didn’t comment further on the health issues.

The health issue was psychological: penis enzi.

Bursting with pride, here.

Liz Cheney, GOP neocon, drops out of ill-thought out Senate challenge.

Is this what they meant by not letting stupid TP candidates screw things up, that we’d best leave it to GOP establishment insiders who know what they’re doing? Like Liz Cheney?

Let’s hope the health care issue isn’t serious or long-lasting.

I don’t know why she wanted the Senate seat in Wyoming. She’s a better fit for Virginia where she 1) lives 2) has lived for quite a while and 3) is sympathico with most of the GOP there.

    Agreed on all points.

    Virginia is a better fit for her and, besides, there was no real reason to replace Enzi.

    Of course, the Purity Police can go over anyone’s record with a magnifying glass and a fine-toothed comb and find some instance where their salute of iconic shibboleths was insufficiently crisp.
