Liz Cheney Eyes Senate Run

Liz Cheney has been seen at events all over Wyoming lately, sometimes with her famous parents in tow. And the reason is clear: she has her eye on the Senate seat currently held by Republican Michael B. Enzi. Cheney even called Enzi earlier this year to tell him she’s thinking of challenging him in 2014. But is family fame enough to support Cheney's political hopes? Enzi is reportedly not ready to retire, and a Senate run could cause a rift in the Wyoming branch of an already divided party. Cheney’s run could mean an infusion of youth into the system—or it could cripple the Wyoming establishment for years to come. We’ll just have to sit back and see.
