Super PAC Formed to Support Enzi
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Supporters of Sen. Mike Enzi have created a super political action committee to help the Republican incumbent fend off what could turn into an expensive primary challenge from Liz Cheney.
The super PAC has been named Wyoming's Own and was founded by Casper accountant and political strategist Bill Cubin and businessman Dick Bratton.
Wyoming generally doesn't feature races that require donors with deep pockets.
But campaigning against Cheney will be different because her father is former Vice President Dick Cheney, who has ties to big political donors.
Cubin tells the Associated Press that Liz Cheney can raise enough money to make the race competitive.
Cheney campaign finance Chairwoman Margaret Parry says they are doing much better than expected this early in the campaign.
