Liz Cheney Formally Announces Candidacy

July 17, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Liz-Cheney

Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, yesterday announced her intentions to run against Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi for his seat that comes up for reelection next year. Cheney says her decision to run is tied to a federal government that has gone out of control. Cheney says the last 4 ½ years have been particularly devastating. Cheney says, “Our national debt is reaching $17-trillion with no end in sight, imposing an inexcusable burden on our children and grandchildren. We’ve watched as our taxpayer dollars are wasted on investments that go bankrupt, so-called stimulus project that never get off the ground, and federal government programs that don’t create jobs. Cheney also points to repeated instances where American’s rights and freedoms are being challenged.  Cheney and her family purchased a house in Jackson with her family last year. Minutes after Cheney made the announcement, Enzi’s office issued a statement saying that he intends take another crack at re-election next year but is not yet ready to make a formal announcement.
