Quite apart from the merits of Liz Cheney vs. Mike Enzi, this is a setback for insurgent in the Republican Party trying to oust the establishment. In other words, not viewed as a conservative vs. liberal matrix but as an insurgent vs. establishment contest, it is a setback.

This is a victory to stop the libertarian movement to an anti-social conservative GOP.

What are you talking about? Liz Cheney is Establishment. This is a setback for entitled Establishment DC aristocracy thinking they can step on home-grown candidates like Enzi.

Nonsense. I supported Enzi. CHENEY is the establishment, and a RINO at that.
I do understand where you are coming from. I didn’t follow this ditz because I knew she would sell us out every chance she got.
Is it too late for someone that is level-headed to take her place?

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?

You see the Cheney clan as anti-establishment?

I disagree. This was RINOs trying to remove a pol with a relatively good voting record with someone who has no voting record, but lots of fake-Republican views. She chose something that she thought was a sure 'pub victory in Novemeber.
If that weren't the case, she would've gone after Lindsey Graham or Mitch McConnell and attacked their backstabbing anti constitutional conservative views.
But why would she do that? She's most likely one of them.

I disagree... a progressive republican just failed at trying to become a TEA Party candidate during a republican primary. That is a win.
