Skip to comments.Rand Paul to Mike Enzi: ‘I’ll do anything I can’ (To help defeat Liz Cheney)
Posted on 07/18/2013 11:20:18 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Rand Paul is formally endorsing Sen. Mike Enzi as he faces Liz Cheney in a Wyoming GOP primary next year, Paul told POLITICO in an interview Wednesday.
Ive told him Ill do anything I can to help him, the Kentucky GOP senator said. In fact, somebody asked me today if they could use my name, and I said Id be happy to sign on and do a fundraiser for him.
Paul said he isnt sure why Cheney decided to challenge Enzi, but said she might end up picking up some grudges for doing so.
I dont think it probably will be helpful in the long run. Im pretty sure Senator Enzi will be able to hold off against any primary challenge, Paul said. In doing so there will be some people that wont be so happy with the primary challenge, that might bear grudges. Cheney, 46, is the daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney and launched her campaign Tuesday with a video calling for a new generation of leaders to step up to the plate.
Although she has deep pockets, her lack of deep roots in the state might hurt her. Cheney spent time in Wyoming as a child, but hasnt spent much time there since. She moved her family from Virginia to Jackson Hole last year.
Paul said it will be difficult for someone new to the state to create the same type of deep personal relationship Enzi has.
Mike Enzi has probably been to every town in Wyoming.
Hes the kind of guy who spends the time to get to know people in a town of 600 people, hes been there, Paul said.

Maybe this will help:
MIKE ENZI ON THE ISSUES
Liz Cheney backs same-sex marriage. Mike Enzi supports internet sales taxes. Your choice.
|Michael Enzi is a Hard-Core Conservative.
Click here for explanation of political philosophy.
He appears to be one of those guys who went to DC with good intentions and then was seduced by re-election and the siren's call of being one of the establishment.
RE: Liz Cheney backs same-sex marriage. Mike Enzi supports internet sales taxes. Your choice.
We are not often given candidates who agree with us on all issues. Even Ronald Reagan signed an abortion and amnesty bill.
Between the Internet Sales tax and Gay Marriage, I believe the latter is the greater evil.
Liz Cheney’s dad is a New World Order guy.
Beliefs aren’t hereditary
Liz Cheney’s positions will be visible soon I hope. Maybe she should have taken on a lefty Senator instead of Enzi.
The one resort community in an otherwise totally blue collar state.
If Liz had any guts, she would run against the Democrat Senators in VA, which is where she actually lives, rather than trying to unseat a solid conservative in a state where she only vacations.
Liz Cheney deserves to be a senator about as much as Hillary Clinton did. But, she’s the political legacy of CFR and Tri-Lat one-worlder Dick Cheney. She’ll probably “win”.
So do democRats Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly, Tim Johnson, Max Baucus, and Jon Tester (A-, actually).
That’s true but I no longer trust any of them.
Two days ago when I saw GHW Bush visiting the White House in his clown socks and kissing up to the avowed enemy of our country, I was sick. It was beyond disgusting.
Liz Cheneys positions will be visible soon I hope. Maybe she should have taken on a lefty Senator instead of Enzi.
Nothing like fitting in with the natives, is there? </sarcasm>
Cheney is toast.
