Posted on 08/16/2016 4:24:20 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued
Will a Cheney be returning to power in Washington? Liz Cheney, that is, a daughter of Dick Cheney, the former vice president, and the favorite in Tuesdays crowded Republican primary for Wyomings at-large House seat.
Ms. Cheney opted to try for the House seat being vacated by Representative Cynthia M. Lummis after Ms. Cheneys 2014 Senate primary bid against Mike Enzi, the popular Republican incumbent, spurred Republican infighting and raised questions about her ties to Wyoming after spending most of her life in the Washington area. She ultimately withdrew. Ms. Lummiss retirement opened the door for Ms. Cheney to try to reclaim the House seat once held by father without having to challenge an incumbent.
Others in the state were not ready to simply surrender to her and her well-known last name. She faces seven opponents, including Tim Stubson, a State House leader, and Leland Christensen, a state senator. Mr. Christensen received a last-minute endorsement from Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, who noted that Mr. Christensen lives in Wyoming and walks the walk as a proud Westerner.

Will Liz Cheney be elected to Congress? We’ll know tonight.
By what time will we know?
Is she really the best candidate? Or is she just looking for a way to get back on the Sunday talk shows?
Where does she stand on Trump? (Like I don’t already know)
Where does she stand on Trump? (Like I dont already know)
I don’t know where she stands on trump. She’s a DC insider.
I don’t remember hearing where her dad stands, either.
She's endorsed Trump.

I’ve had my issues with Mr. Paul, but that kind of endorsement is meaningful.
I think Cheney’s lukewarm ‘endorsement’ of Trump was a little too RINOish for me.
Go Liz! Thanks for posting this.
She’s a goodun! Hope she wins!
Both are backing Trump
The most importanat question to any potential House member:
Do you support enforcement of our current immigration laws and will you fight against news laws that benefit illegal aliens and their employers?
Anybody know where Liz Cheney stands on the illegal alien inundation?
Most of the Bush crew were all in for amnesty and open borders.
Good to hear. Thanks.
They have no record of where she stands on Immigration
"In Wyoming there's no question for us that Hillary Clinton would be devastating and far, far worse than Donald Trump. We've gotta unify behind him and make sure Hillary Clinton's not elected." Link
Hardly an enthusiastic endorsement
Then it is a pretty good bet she is not on the side of the citizens and the rule of law.
She is a DC Insider. And from what I’ve seen, she’s a Rino.
You should not be expecting enthralled endorsements from the Republican old guard that were so trashed by Trump during the primaries. It should be appreciated that most aren’t actively campaigning against Trump. Only subtle back-stabs.
She looks to me like the one who got away. You guys know what I’m going through so you must all be redheads.
