Liz Cheney Expected To Run For Congress In 2016

Liz Cheney is a neocon looking for a foothold, and current Wyoming Rep. Cynthia Lummis may have just handed it to her.

Cheney, 2016!

Wyoming Rep. Cynthia Lummis announced Thursday she will not seek re-election, and former Vice President Dick Cheney’s elder daughter, Liz Cheney, said she was seriously considering running for the seat.

Lummis is the only female member of the rebellious House Freedom Caucus and plans to finish her current term. She has easily won re-election since first winning Wyoming’s lone spot in the U.S. House in 2008.

Cheney, a television news commentator, briefly challenged Wyoming U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi for last year’s GOP nomination. She cited health issues in her family in bowing out of the race more than seven months before the primary.

Cheney and her family have been living in Jackson Hole since 2012.

“I am taking a serious look at running and will be discussing this with my family and others around the state as I make my decision in the coming weeks,” Cheney told The Associated Press by email.

Lummis made her formal announcement Thursday afternoon at the state capitol.
“I came to Washington to be a reformer, not a career congressman,” Lummis, 61, said.

Running for an open seat ought to be easier for Liz than running for Congress did. Oh, joy.
