GOP Strategist Ed Rollins: Liz Cheney Will Be Portrayed As ‘A Housewife Who’s Kind Of Bored’

July 19, 2013 2:09 a.m.

Liz Cheney’s nascent Senate bid drew skepticism Thursday from a veteran Republican strategist.

Ed Rollins, who worked on the presidential campaigns of Mike Huckabee and Michele Bachmann, told The Hill that Cheney, a mother of five who until recently was a resident of Virginia, will have a tough time winning over voters in Wyoming.

“I like Liz, I’ve been a longtime friend of her father’s, but it’ll be portrayed as they’ve been away from the state a long time, a housewife who’s kind of bored who moved back to Wyoming after a long time to run for the Senate,” Rollins said. “Unfortunately for Liz, that’s not a state like California or New York where you can carpetbag very easily, and even though she was born there she hasn’t been there for a long time.”
