Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) is not holding back how he feels about Liz Cheney.

Asked Tuesday to comment about the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney’s decision to challenge him in 2014, Enzi was frank.

“I thought we were friends,” he said, as quoted by the Washington Post.

“Money raising’s always been a problem for me,” he added. “My job is to be the U.S. senator that I was elected to be until at least January of 2015. The people of Wyoming expect me to do the job, I do it pretty much full time, I’m in Wyoming almost every weekend, here during the time that we’re voting out here,” he said. “I won’t be doing anything different than I’ve been doing, getting the opinions of the Wyoming people and traveling Wyoming and doing my job out here.”
