First on CNN: Liz Cheney, whose bid to unseat Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi sparked a round of warfare in the Republican Party and even within her own family, is dropping out of the Senate primary, sources told CNN's John King.
Cheney, the eldest daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, began telling associates of her decision over the weekend and could make an announcement about the race as early as Monday.
This bodes ill for the other Senate primary contests in this sense rather than in the sense of more conservative vs. less conservative, the point of my first reply.
It’s funny how Rove never denounced this challenge to an incumbent.
I will vote for Carr against Alexander.
However, I have come to the conclusion that we have already passed
the point of return anyway. Amnesty will soon be passed and that will
be the final straw for tens of millions of conservatives supporting the GOP.
Can’t control what happens after that, but I will continue to “stock up”.
That is something I can control.
Both neocons recently (since GWB) converted to the cause of liberty because they saw it as convenient.
No one knows what the Cheney's really believe in besides an aggressive military.
Read post 6, the 2008 member of the Romney campaign is “establishment”.
If she wanted to shake things up she should have run in Virginia, against a pro-abortion democrat ,not move out of state to defeat a social conservative republican.
“Well, that was pointless.”
Quite the fizzle fest.
Really masterful job of the Cheney camp getting conservatives on the internet to believe that SHE was the “anti-establishment” choice (this is so laughable an idea that it’s akin to selling ice to eskimos) and that the guy that votes right 95% of the time “had to go”.
How unfortunate for them that Wyomingites weren’t so easy to fool.
About as many times as I have to make it clear that it should be.
She is finished thank God. I had a creepy feeling that she has bad, long term intentions against conservatism, and wanted to become the rino version of Sarah Palin, and to try and emerge as the tough sounding, social liberal, female face of the GOP.
You are a good Tennesseean, but most of the people in your state are too uninformed to expel Lamar!
Agree....wonder why she opted out...rather what she will say as her reason...could be numerous reasons but I suspect we’ll not know the real one. I was excited she stepped up so it’s a disappointment, but perhaps she’s been earmarked for a higher postion in Washington once we win the election?
I didn’t trust Liz Cheney on two big issues. My gut instinct (courtesy many clues) was that she would get into office, and be totally pro-amnesty, and totally pro-fag marriage. Two reasons I could never support her.
Sheesh, all she had to was show up at a gay marriage ceremony and it should have been fine s/
It doesn't seem to take much. Just bark ‘Tea Party’ and ‘Obama’s no good’ and you are the next conservative messiah to way too many suckers.
Look at how they all jumped on the Paul Ryan scam wagon.
I see no real evidence that the Cheney's are no different than McCain and Grahamnesty.
Chalk up a win for GOPe.
Well it seems to me that they're just meeting demand. "Tea Party" becomes just another contentless slogan if we are not diligent to give it content. That's true even for hating Obama, who is so abysmal even liberals hate him now.
This is a way that God reminds us to trust in Him and not in princes, not even Tea Party princes.
“I see no real evidence that the Cheney's are any different than McCain and Grahamnesty. “
hummm...Has anybody in the Cheney family served in the Military?
I ask you has anybody in the Obama family served, has any member of the Clinton tribe served???
Former Vice President Dick Cheney has served his county very well, even thought he never served in the Military, and he donates more to Charity than any liberal Democrat currently serving in Congress ever has as well...
