Liz Cheney to Challenge In The Primary Incumbent Senator Michael Enzi of Wyoming: Liz Cheney, the older daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, announced Tuesday that she intended to challenge Senator Michael B. Enzi of Wyoming in a Republican primary clash in next year that national and state party officials had hoped to avoid.
“I am running because I believe it is necessary for a new generation of leaders to step up to the plate,” Ms. Cheney, 46, said in a video posted on the Web.
Ms. Cheney made no mention of Mr. Enzi, 69, and focused most of her criticisms on President Obama, who is deeply unpopular in Wyoming.
But along with the generational swipe at Mr. Enzi, she implicitly took a shot at his low-key and consensus-oriented style, saying that “we can no longer afford simply to get along to go along” and declaring that Wyoming needed “a strong voice in Washington.”
One smart lady!!!
