Enzi seemed blindsided this summer when Liz Cheney announced her decision to challenge him in 2014, saying he "thought we were friends," a sentiment he echoed in an interview with the Daily Beast last week. He told the Daily Beast that the former vice president had been a longtime supporter of his and a "fishing buddy." 

Cheney added that his daughter raised more money from within Wyoming than Enzi, arguing that most of the incumbent senator's campaign funds come from Washington-based PACs.

"The fact of the matter is, Washington is not going to elect the next senator from Wyoming," he said. "The people of Wyoming will elect that senator."

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
