Cheney Criticizes Daughter’s Wyoming Opponent, Senator Mike Enzi

Oct. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Dick Cheney criticized Senator Mike Enzi, the Republican incumbent defending a Senate seat in Wyoming against a primary challenge from the former U.S. vice president’s daughter Liz Cheney.

“He doesn’t get much money from Wyoming,” Cheney said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” today. “In the quarter just reported, Liz got 25 percent of her funds from Wyoming; he got 13 percent of his from Wyoming.”

Liz Cheney, 47, is running against Enzi, 69, calling him part of an aging Republican establishment. Enzi held a 92 percent rating from the American Conservative Union, a Washington-based group that opposes President Barack Obama’s agenda.

Liz Cheney raised more than $1 million in 11 weeks after announcing her Senate campaign, and Enzi raised almost $850,000 during the 12-week reporting period between July 1 and Sept. 30, the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reported earlier this month.

Enzi’s office didn’t immediately respond to a voicemail and an e-mailed request for comment on the former vice president’s comments today.
