Liz Cheney Ends Bid For U.S. Senate Seat


By Paul Johnson

Casper, Wyoming (CNN) - Liz Cheney is ending her bid for a U.S. Senate seat representing Wyoming.
She issued a statement saying she's dropping out of the republican primary.
She wrote, "Serious health issues have recently arisen in our family, and under the circumstances, I have decided to discontinue my campaign."
The eldest daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney had sought to unseat incumbent senator Mike Enzi.
But her campaign has been rocky from the start.
Critics labeled her a "carpetbagger" for relocating to Wyoming from Virginia in 2012.
Cheney also drew attention for a very public dispute with her sister, Mary - who is a lesbian - over the issue of same-sex marriage.
