Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) ridiculed Liz Cheney’s Senate campaign announcement by calling into question her Wyoming residency, Politico reported Tuesday.
“When I heard Liz Cheney was running for Senate I wondered if she was running in her home state of Virginia,” Paul said, as quoted by Politico.
Paul told Politico last week that he believes Cheney’s competition, incumbent Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY), is a “solid conservative.”
