    Re: Liz Cheney dropping out of Wyoming Senate race

    Liz Cheney is a smart woman - not surprising, with two very intelligent and well spoken parents. I wish her well in whatever she chooses to pursue going forward - I believe she would have been a strong voice for conservatives and women had she succeeded in her Senate run.

    I hope her immediate and extended family is okay - health and family are far more important than politics.

    The typical "I'm quitting to spend more time with my family..." excuse doesn't usually include health issues.
    Hopefully, her little ones are OK.
    Yeah, I think it was the standard opt out too...And also hope everything is ok.

    Re: Liz Cheney dropping out of Wyoming Senate race

    I read a couple of articles on Cheney ending her campaign. Neither one said anything about who was ill in her family. Wish them well. I didn't quite get why Liz was trying to unseat Enzi. I don't think he qualifies as an honest to goodness RINO. In an article it stated " American Conservative Union (which hosts CPAC in March) rated Enzi at 92.73% for 2012, 89% in 2011, and 96% in 2010. " That looks pretty conservative to me.

    Enzi was absolutely demolishing her in early polling. She may have hung around if she was polling better.

    Those are RINO numbers, as far as the real nutbars are concerned.

    Yeah, I don't think she had a chance in unseating him.

    Not at all. That is just your false characterization of your political opponents.

    I hope her family is OK, but I'm not totally buying it as the only reason.
    She was behind by like 30 points. I'd venture to bet that that had something to do with it.


    Liz Cheney drops US Senate bid. What happened?

    Surveys showed she was 20 to 30 percentage points down, and not gaining.

    Good. She can pack her carpet bags and move back to Virginia where she's from.
