From the start, Liz Cheney's Senate run controversial

(CNN) - The U.S. Senate race in Wyoming has it all: A popular incumbent Republican facing a primary challenge, a GOP feud, a generational divide, and Dick Cheney, one of the most polarizing figures in politics.

Liz Cheney was to meet with reporters at two events in Wyoming one day after she announced her bid for Senate. Her announcement came on the same day that three-term Republican Sen. Mike Enzi said he would run for re-election.

Liz Cheney: Obama 'most radical' ever in Oval Office

(CNN) - Republicans need to move past last year's disappointing election before President Barack Obama drives the country to its demise, Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, wrote in an op-ed published Friday in the Wall Street Journal.

"It is time for Republicans to get over their loss in 2012. We are all that stands between this president's policies and a damaged and diminished America," she wrote. "It is time to get back in the fight."

Wyoming voters send anti-Obamacare message

(CNN) - Wyoming residents voted strongly against Obama's signature health care reform law, commonly referred to as "Obamacare", which requires individuals and businesses to purchase health insurance for themselves or their employees.

The ballot initiative will amend the state constitution to declare that citizens of Wyoming have the right to make their own health care decisions and allows the state to act to "preserve these rights from undue government influence."

The initiative is considered largely symbolic in the aftermath of a Supreme Court ruling earlier this year that upheld the constitutionality of the legislation.
