Cheney Wins Wyoming Primary

cheneyLiz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, won the Wyoming Republican Primary for the United States House of Representatives. Cheney will now attempt to win the U.S. House seat once held by her father. Cheney received around 40 percent of the votes in one of the most competitive U.S. primary contest in Wyoming history. Leland Christensen carried 22 percent, followed by Tim Stubson with 17 percent and Darin Smith with 15 percent of the votes. Cheney says that she is looking forward to the general election, and hopes republicans in the state can unify to ensure the strongest most conservative voice gets elected to Washington in November. Cheney now faces off against Democrat Ryan Greene in the November 8th general election. Her campaign is expected to focus on a strong national defense, and repealing regulations that have hurt Wyoming like the Clean Power Plan.
