"We're proud of our families deep roots in Wyoming," one of Cheney's daughters said in the ad.

The ad is a clear response to criticism that Cheney doesn't really have a strong connection to Wyoming and only recently moved there in order to run for Sen. Mike Enzi's (R-WY) Senate seat.

The ad also comes as Cheney tries to move national attention away from an increasingly public feud between her and her sister Mary over same-sex marriage. Liz Cheney has repeatedly said she opposes same-sex marriage. Mary, who is openly lesbian and is married to her partner, is reportedly no longer on speaking terms with her sister over this position.
