Liz Cheney announces Senate bid

LINK

quote:

Liz Cheney announced Tuesday that she will challenge Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi in a Republican primary next year.

The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney made the announcement in a six-minute YouTube video. Most of her announcement was an attack on President Barack Obama, with only a veiled swipe at the the incumbent.

“We can get our nation back on track,” Cheney said. “Instead of cutting deals with the president’s liberal allies, we should be opposing them every step of the way.”

“I’m running because I believe it is necessary for a new generation of leaders to step up to the plate,” she added. “We can’t continue business as usual in Washington.”

Enzi, 69, announced Tuesday that he will run for a fourth term. He said at the Capitol that Cheney did not give him a heads up and defiantly insisted that her move will not dissuade him.

“She said that if I ran she wasn’t going to run. That wasn’t correct,” he said. “I thought we were friends.”

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Jerry Moran, a senator from Kansas, announced that the official party body will back Enzi.

Cheney, 46, worked in the State Department and the Agency for International Development during the George W. Bush administration. But she moved her family to Jackson Hole last year and has traveled aggressively around the state laying the foundation for what everyone assumed would be a political bid.

Are there any politicians whose kids have real jobs?

Meh, I don't know what to think. Is she more conservative than Enzi? I get the feeling she's going to vote closer to McCain than Rand. With that said, it would be an improvement to have a strong conservative woman in the senate...hope she wins.

No she doesn't. I despise her, but she doesn't deserve these types of false allegations.

I think you'd have to go all the way back to Carter to find a President whose kids didn't cash in on their family name. It's no coincidence that Liz, Jenna and Chelsea still use their maiden names. Hell, even Mika Brzezinski uses her maiden name and her dad was just the national security advisor.

Then I do not want.

She can keep her arse out of Washington. If she's another McCain, Graham, or a generic big govt RINO neocon, she should be told to frick off.

We don't need anymore of those types in the party.

She's running to the right of Mike Enzi, so I don't think she's what most would consider a RINO.

I always want the most conservative alternative to anyone.

I know nothing about Enzi - he must be in the middle of the conservative spectrum.

I have seen Liz on numerous interviews and don't recall objecting to anything she said.
