A Message for Liz Cheney: Run for the Senate in Massachusetts

I was reading today's story out of Wyoming about the Sisters Cheney.

It seems that Liz Cheney's campaign to unseat the incumbent Senator in that state has a poll indicating that she is down by 50 points.

Liz, if you come to Massachusetts and run for the U.S. Senate against Liz Warren, that 50% margin in Wyoming will look like a nail biter by comparison here If you didn't wake up in time on election day, you may even get shut out.

Liz Cheney's Sister Unloads On Her Over Gay Marriage Opposition

Liz Cheney Wyoming AP


Liz Cheney is trying to build momentum — any momentum — for her Senate candidacy in Wyoming. But she still hasn't even convinced her family.

Mary Cheney unloaded on comments her sister made about gay marriage on "Fox News Sunday," saying that Liz is on the "wrong side of history." So did Heather Poe, Mary's wife.

"I love Mary very much, I love her family very much," Liz Cheney said on Fox News, defending her past stance of opposition to gay marriage despite the personal connection. "This is just an issue on which we disagree."

That drew the ire of both her sister and her sister's wife. Poe, on Facebook, wrote that Cheney's comments were "offensive."

Her full message:

I was watching my sister-in-law on Fox News Sunday (yes Liz, in fifteen states and the District of Columbia you are my sister-in-law) and was very disappointed to hear her say "I do believe in the traditional definition of marriage."

Liz has been a guest in our home, has spent time and shared holidays with our children, and when Mary and I got married in 2012 - she didn't hesitate to tell us how happy she was for us.

To have her now say she doesn't support our right to marry is offensive to say the least.

I can't help but wonder how Liz would feel if as she moved from state to state, she discovered that her family was protected in one but not the other.

I always thought freedom meant freedom for EVERYONE.

Mary Cheney shared that status on her own Facebook page, adding a personal message for her sister.

"Liz — this isn't just an issue on which we disagree — you're just wrong — and on the wrong side of history," she wrote.

Liz Cheney, the elder daughter to former Vice President Dick Cheney, is mounting a primary challenge to Republican Sen. Mike Enzi. A poll taken last week showed Enzi up by more than 50 points. That's even worse than early polls found upon her entering the race in July.

3. Liz Cheney Tanking in Senate Race, for the Worst Reason

James Hohmann gets a look at internal polling for Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi in his primary fight with Liz Cheney. The Wicker Group's data is all sunny for Enzi—a 40-point lead in August is a 52-point lead in November, a +18 favorable rating for Cheney has withered to a -8 rating. If we take this as it is, what's the cause?

The American Principles Fund, a conservative super PAC run by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, spent $140,000 over three weeks on TV ads attacking Cheney as wobbly on gay marriage. No other outside group, and neither campaign, ran ads in the period.

Not only is she soft on gay rights—she appears on MSNBC! That's not just a low blow, that's like the sucker punch that paralyzed Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby.

6. Disagree.

 

The story about cheating on the resident fishing license (and then blaming it on the clerk) broke in August. A couple of very public kerfuffles with the Simpson family--actual, and revered, Wyomingites--hit the papers in September. It didn't take advertising, by anybody, to sink Lizard's already flailing campaign. Heck, living in Jackson Hole was probably enough. No one in Wyoming actually regards that town as a "real" part of the state.

4. omg--the Cheney scion is down by 50 POINTS in Wyoming!!!?1!11

 

Actually, I'm not surprised. Wyoming residents are proud of the former VP and at the same time they are well-aware that he left that state long ago. His carpetbagging, Glitter Gulch (Jackson Hole) -residing, cheating, non-resident for the purposes of a fishing license daughter was never going to fly as a "local" candidate. It is just too funny that they even thought they could get away with it.

But that 50-point margin is indescribably delicious.
