Video – Liz Cheney running for Senate

Liz Cheney, the eldest daughter of the former US vice-president Dick Cheney, has announced that she will stand for the Senate next year.

Liz-CheneyCheney, 46, launched herself into the race on Tuesday with a nearly six-minute online video in which she laid out a conservative agenda, calling the federal government too large and wasteful of taxpayer dollars, and sharply criticizing Barack Obama.

“President Obama has launched a war on our second amendment rights, he’s launched a war on our religious freedom, he’s used the IRS to launch a war on our freedom of speech and he’s used the EPA to launch a war on Wyoming‘s ranchers, our farmers and our energy industry,” she said on the video.

Cheney will challenge Senator Mike Enzi, a clash between two Republicans that some fear could damage the party. In announcing her first campaign for political office, Cheney did not mention three-term incumbent Enzi by name but said she was running in part “because I believe it is necessary for a new generation of leaders to step up to the plate”.
