Cheney Enzi Drama
Liz Cheney, who is running against Senator Enzi in Wyoming for his senate seat, said today that she is not against gay marriage. Cheney’s sister, Mary is openly gay. Liz Cheney is running on the claim that she is very right wing and conservative. Cheney said, “I am strongly pro-life and I am not pro-gay marriage. I believe this issue of marriage must be decided by the states, not by judges and not even by legislators, but by the people themselves.” This statement was in response to a push pull that said she was pro-gay marriage, and she asked for Senator Enzi and the NRSC to stop spreading false rumors. Senator Enzi’s spokesperson Coy Knobel said that Enzi’s campaign did not produce this poll, and that for Cheney to falsely accuse Enzi of this without any fact shows the kind of campaign she is running. NRSC spokesman Brad Dayspring said, ”With all due respect, it looks like Liz Cheney is fishing without a license again.” The continued attacks between Enzi and Cheney are forming a very interesting primary race.
