Liz Cheney Releases New Ad: ‘Daughters’

Wyoming Republican Senate candidate Liz Cheney released a new ad Monday highlighting her family’s history in the state.

The ad, titled “Daughters,” features Cheney’s three daughters recounting the Cheney family’s “deep roots” in Wyoming starting when Cheney’s ancestors first came to the state in 1852. They also mention that former Vice President Dick Cheney hails from the state, where he was a representative in Congress.

“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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
