Liz Cheney made an appearance in Cheyenne Wednesday to discuss why she chose to run for the U.S. Senate in 2014. Cheney, the daughter of former Vice-President Dick Cheney, will challenge incumbent Senator Mike Enzi for the seat.

Cheney says she's running because " the last four and a half years have been particularly devastating."  She said "our national debt is nearing $17 trillion dollars, with no end in sight."  Cheney said " we can get our nation back on track and said instead of cutting deals with the president's liberal allies, we should be opposing them every step of the way."  She said " it is necessary for a new generation of leaders to step up to the plate."

Cheney earned her bachelor's degree at Colorado Colleg and her law degree at the University of Chicago. Cheney served as Principal Deputy Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs in the George W. Bush administration. She is also a Fox News contributor and has guest hosted the Sean Hannity Show.
