Liz Cheney Will Run for Wyoming Senate, Challenging Incumbent Republican Senator Mike Enzi

This has been rumored for a while.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s daughter Liz Cheney will run against Wyoming’s senior U.S. senator in next year’s Republican primary, her campaign said Tuesday.

Enzi, 68 or so, isn't stepping aside for her.

US Sen. Mike Enzi also announced Tuesday he was planning to seek a fourth term, making clear he was seeking re-election bid more than six months earlier than he has in the past.

“Anybody can get in the race that wants to get in the race. There’s at least one person that’s trying to get me to retire,” Enzi said earlier this month at a constituent meeting in Pine Bluffs. He declined to say who he was referring to, “No, people can judge who they think that is themselves,” he said.

I just looked Enzi up on Wikipedia -- I know nothing about him. He is a pretty conservative guy (rated the sixth-most conservative senator), so this wouldn't be a trade-up in terms of conservatism, most likely.

Not saying I oppose Cheney's bid, just saying this isn't one of those cases where a conservative is challenging a RINO. It appears to be a conservative challenging a conservative, so the decision will be made largely on non-ideological grounds.
