    Linc....my long lost sports compadre.
    Long time no see.
    I'm not paying much attention to wrestling...yet.
    How about Kyle Dake?
    Four championships moving up in weight each year.

    Senator Enzi is clearly one of the more conservative members of the U.S. Senate based on his voting record. My early guess is that the biggest policy differences between Enzi and his challenger may lie in the foreign policy realm. Very likely, if her foreign policy positions are similar to her father's, she favors a more activist foreign policy under the banner of advancing freedom and democracy e.g., would be a leading hawk for military intervention in Syria, would place greater emphasis on the use of force relative to diplomacy, etc. She might also favor greater Defense spending than Enzi, as Enzi voted to reduce funding for the F-22.

    Almost certainly, she has plunged into the race, because she does not want to wait any longer to pursue her political ambitions. Perhaps secondary is her concern that the nation is moving away from the kind of activist foreign policy she champions. Senator Enzi's hasty, informal announcement of his intent to seek re-election was not a barrier and it is unclear what understanding actually existed between the two of them regarding the race.

    It will be interesting to see how this race plays out. No matter who wins next year's primary--and a Cheney victory is not a given--the Wyoming Senate seat is a safe Republican seat.

    Not sure, but I think Liz Cheney probably would've had to wait another seven years before a seat opened up, if she wanted to run in Wyoming that is. Wyoming only has one congressman and two Senators representing it in DC. With only one congressman that should tell you how unpopulated the state is. Consequently, almost everyone in WY who votes has some connection or met one of the Cheneys and/or Enzi family.

    Anyway, the story I heard was that Enzi's and the Cheney's are long time family friends. Liz Cheney is an attorney and worked for years at the state department in DC and had lived most of her life on the east coast. But after Liz and her husband bought a house in WY last year, Sen. Enzi asked her if she was going to run for office and she said, "no." So then he made his announcement to run again. Shortley after, Liz Cheney makes her announcement to run for his seat. When asked what he thought about that, Enzi said, "I thought we were friends."

    Enzi is very popular in WY and a well respected conservative...but apparently he's is not a good fund raiser probably because he never really had to be. Cheney on the other hand has access to a lot of out of state money so she could easily outspend Enzi.

    This campaign could create a huge rift in WY GOP politics...land of cattle and oil men.

    Dake was/is the real deal. Too bad for D. Taylor. I thought Ramos got robbed at 133. A lot of these guys are trying MMA.

    I'll be in Vegas for the first week of the NFL. I like Baltimore + 9 at Denver on the opening Thursday.

    Taking +6 senators out of 20 from the Dems and holding their 13 in 2014 is a tall order. Dems need to hold their first ever mid-term convention next summer so as to not repeat their miserable turn-out in 2010. You may have different thoughts.

    The "college" vote out of towns like Laramie could be interesting.
