Fox News ^ | 1/06/2014 | Fox News

Posted on 01/06/2014 4:04:48 AM PST by carriage_hill

Liz Cheney is ending her campaign to be the next senator from Wyoming, dropping her primary challenge to Republican incumbent Mike Enzi.

The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, in a written statement released Monday morning, cited health issues in the family.

"Serious health issues have recently arisen in our family, and under the circumstances, I have decided to discontinue my campaign," she said. "My children and their futures were the motivation for our campaign and their health and well-being will always be my overriding priority. ... Though this campaign stops today, my commitment to keep fighting with you and your families for the fundamental values that have made this nation and Wyoming great will never stop."

She never should have been running against a Republican....she should have stayed in Virginia and run against Warner....she would have had a great chance of winning. I have lost a ton of respect for her.

She wasn’t Tea Party and is a social liberal, just taking-up space and keeping a Tea Party candidate out, against the Enzi RINO. Go back to VA, Lizzie!

Too much baggage going in....mainly a family whose members can't keep their mouths shut forcing Liz into floundering around with mixed messages.

I bear Liz Cheney no ill will, I just thought she was a lousy challenger for Mike Enzi. I’m sorry to hear that she’s having some family issues. Usually that’s code-speak for “I know I’m about to be smacked down” but I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. I hope it turns out for the best.

Can’t stand a carpetbagger and I don’t care what letter is behind their name.

Sorry about the serious health issue, but we don't need another Progressive Republican Senator. We have plenty of them already.

Too bad. She is the kind of adult needed to offset RINOs.

Buh bye!

Health issues? More likely it was horribly low poll numbers and a lack of big money donors.
