Liz Cheney Wins GOP Primary in Wyoming

Liz Cheney Wins GOP Primary in Wyoming

Cheney family probably headed back to DC.

Liz Cheney has emerged victorious in a primary election for Wyoming’s only House of Representatives seat. Her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, once held the exact same seat. She said:

“No state has been hurt more by Barack Obama’s agenda over the past seven-and-a-half years than Wyoming,” said Cheney.

“Hillary Clinton represents a continuation of the same failed policies. Our freedom is under assault from an out-of-control federal government and our security is under threat from radical Islamic terrorism.”

She will face off against Democrat Charlie Hardy in November, but experts believe she will easily win the state. Hardy has only raised $11,000 while Cheney gained $1.5 million.

They will try to win Rep. Cynthia Lummis’s seat, who has decided not to seek a fifth term in Congress.

Cheney worked at the State Department under President George W. Bush where she “oversaw Middle East democracy initiatives, directing money to projects aimed at introducing education and economic opportunities in countries such as Syria and Iran.”

She campaigned “on national security and rolling back federal regulations affecting Wyoming’s beleaguered coal industry.”

Cheney attempted a run against Sen. Mike Enzi in the last election cycle, but Wyoming Republicans lashed out at her. This caused her to drop out almost immediately.

She directed money to Middle Eastern countries so they could have economic opportunities and education? Been there, done that, got the debt to prove it. I guess she’s better than any Democrat would be.

I’ve always like the Cheney family. I wouldn’t say they were ideal conservatives, but they’re good people I would trust to a pretty fair extent. Good inter-mountain people.

I’m not a big fan of dynasticism in American politics, but I don’t see a big problem here. Except for this—This caused her to drop out almost immediately. Politics is a full-contact sport; it you can’t take the hits, don’t get into the ring. You’re not serving your electorate well if you fold with the first punch.

She is almost as qualified as anyone listed on the 1st page of the Wyoming phone book.
