Skip to comments.Karl Rove won’t get involved in Wyoming Cheney-Enzi fight

Former Bush strategist Karl Rove says hes staying out of Wyomings Republican U.S. Senate primary between incumbent Mike Enzi and newly-announced challenger Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Liz is a friend of mine, Rove told radio host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday. I also respect Sen. Enzi. This is going to be up to the people of Wyoming. They dont need a Texan coming in there, and I grew up in the mountain west and you and I both know particularly in the Rocky Mountain states and small states like Wyoming they know everybody and want to make up their own minds about it.
Rove has been criticized in recent months for his involvement with the Conservative Victory Project, which has been described as an effort to elect establishment Republican candidates over more conservative challengers.

Good news is that Tokyo Rove's Amnesty advertising campaign was a total flop and waste of his donors' funds.
And both of his Super Pacs are failing to raise anywhere near the amount of money he needs.
$100,000 advertising campaigns won't get you anywhere, Tokyo!
He won’t get involved openly because he knows it would wreck whoever he’s backing. However that doesn’t mean the race will be free of his oozing manipulations in the background.
Translation. I don’t want to give my friend the kiss of death.
Which is the best news Cheney and Enzj have received this week.
He has his marching orders.
“Liz a friend”
I’d decode that as favoring Cheney, but staying out lest he taint her needlessly.
He’s right about people up there resenting outsiders who attempt to try to gain power in their territory.
Come to think of it, that sort of describes Liz Cheney, who wasn’t born there, hasn’t lived there as an adult, didn’t go to school there.
Just dropping in from DC to Jackson has a severe elitist taint to it.
Her father has Wyoming bona fides and she doesn’t.
Rove shutting up is always good for conservatism.
This douchebag is single-handedly responsible for every single bad thing that has happened to REAL conservatism in the last decade.
Liz Cheney supports Amnesty and Homo Marriage. So I think we all know who Tokyo Rove is really supporting.
Absolutely. He may not get his fingerprints on it directly, but you know he will be involved behind the scenes.
C’mon, Karlie. You KNOW you wanna back Liz.
Should'a had that attitude in 2010 and stayed the eff out of Delaware Karl.
Translation: He’s in it hoof to snout
“They dont need a Texan coming in there”
Yet for some reason other states do? Take your money and shove it where the sun don’t shine, Tokyo Rove.
Well, there’s a piece of good news.
And her Dad thinks it's treason to point out that the Federal government is collecting our phone and Internet records. Used to admire the Cheneys.
Way over that.
I’m a Texan and I sure don’t want Rove here.
Who cares? Worked for Hillary in NY who didn't even have ties............
with that being said, I suspect Ms. Cheney is far more conservative than the proven Rino Enzi..
The people in Wyoming know Cheney and have supported him throughout his career. There's no reason for them not to support his daughter........
From The Daily Caller:
Q: Would you have voted for the Gang of 8's immigration bill?
I wouldnt have voted for it. I think that there were too many good amendments, for example, that were not accepted, such as those offered by Sen. Cruz, that would have provided much more insurance in terms of border security. I am not comfortable with leaving so much discretion in the hands of the secretary for Homeland Security to decide whether to carry out those provisions of the bill. And I think the bill as it stands now doesnt deal with the most important issue weve got to address first, which is to secure the border.
A blessing for both Enzi and Cheney.
Well, we can all sleep a little easier tonight.
Thanks very much.
I didn’t remember her being for amnesty.
Homosexual marriage, yes, but not amnesty.
Cesar Conda and Liz Cheney are best buddies. Beware.
Cesar Conda and Liz Cheney are best buddies. She supports Amnesty. So does her father.
That’s Rubio’s guy.
Thanks for the information.
He was Cheney’s and Soros’ guy before he was Rubio’s guy.
Actually, her mother, Lynne, has much stronger Wyoming bona fides.
Dick moved to Wyoming with his parents when he was in high school. Lynne was born here.
A lot of wisdom in the old adage that says, “Politics makes for strange bedfellows.”
You forgot one new item for his CV: Rubio’s chief of staff.
He was also assistant to Dick Cheney while he was VP.
He’s a snake in the grass. And he’s hip-by-jowl with the Cheneys.
Another reason to dispense with Lizzie’s senate bid.
In the case of Wyoming....must be looking for a win/win by staying out of the way.
It does surprise me because I’ve always suspected that Rove is a bit fruity and Liz is a big supporter of the homosexual agenda.
Rove’s stepfather was gay.
You got that right !
Stay outa da Bushes! (and Cheneys)
“Actually, her mother, Lynne, has much stronger Wyoming bona fides.
Dick moved to Wyoming with his parents when he was in high school. Lynne was born here.”
Thanks for the info.
Please show me any link to any statement Liz Cheney ever made on amnesty/immigration any reference. I have looked for hours and gone over dozens of links and can’t find anything I sure would appreciate it.
Let’s deport him to Cuba.
If Rove said it, it’s a lie. Bank on it.
I too would lover to see Lynn win this fight mostly because the party needs good conservative leadership.She has the potential to be a national leader. I never heard of Enzi. My one caveat is that I don’t want to be Marcoed again.
If Liz is weak on immigration especially a border fence I want to find out now.
Hey onyx I have searched all over the blogoshpere for any comments Lynn has ever made on immigration and I keep coming up with nothing do you have anything?
I haven’t searched and I don’t know of any.
