Cheney's daughter joins Romney camp
MIAMI - Liz Cheney, one of Vice President Dick Cheney's daughters, has signed onto Mitt Romney's presidential campaign as a senior foreign policy adviser.
Cheney most recently worked in the State Department handling Middle East affairs.
While her father and President Bush have both vowed to remain neutral as their fellow Republicans battle it out for the GOP nomination, the endorsement is likely to be well received among conservatives who comprise a critical primary voting bloc in both Florida, which votes Tuesday, and the 20-odd states voting Feb. 5.
Romney has also enjoyed the support of aides with ties to the Bush family, including top assistants to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former President George H.W. Bush.
Liz Cheney, 41, is the elder of Dick and Lynne Cheney's two daughters. Her younger sister, Mary, has been more prominently in the public eye after revealing she is a lesbian and having a son last year with her partner, Heather Poe, despite the administration's opposition to gay marriage.
Liz Cheney, the mother of five children, said in a statement: "Throughout his campaign, (Romney) has distinguished himself as a leader who can guide our country with a clear vision for overcoming the threats we face today. ... I look forward to working with Governor Romney because he is the leader our country needs."
Romney said Liz Cheney brings the campaign "years of experience helping to formulate America's foreign policy and to advance democracy and reform in the Middle East."
Liz Cheney previously supported former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson, who dropped out of the race last week.
Overdramatic criticism by people who haven’t read the last line of the article in three... two...
I’m afraid after losing Hunter, then Thompson that I’m heading in the same direction as Liz Cheney.
I just wish Romney could pick up Thompson.
Or John Bolton
|I'm sure Mary Cheney will endorse him also since he has been such an active supporter of the sick liberal gay agenda.

Mary isn’t important.
Picking up Liz Cheney, as a senior foreign policy adviser, is.
” I dont think it will be enough in the General”
It could be. I think his choice of a runningmate is extremely important - a make or break.
Also, a republican win will depend upon terrorist activity, especially in europe. (hopefully not here)
I won’t vote Romney. I am still writing in Hunter.
Hunter who endorsed the Huckster?
A member of the Cheney family speaks...Ping!
What exactly does that mean?
All we have to do now is figure out how Lynne Cheney is a RINO, sold out, or senile, and we can dismiss this endorsement too!
Romney wins again!
I didn’t say the Huckster; I am voting for Hunter.
|That is exactly the problem....when it's all about winning even when it means surrendering your core conservative values (assuming you have any), then the party loses and the conservative movement loses.

I just hope Romney isn’t embracing Liz and her husband, Phil Perry, who was head council for homeland security and a lobbyist for Lockheed Martin and messed up everything he was involved in. Liz and the State Dept didn’t do much better.

You do realize that the guy you are voting for, is voting for somebody else.
